*Face Reveal* (read down)
Good, now that I have your attention.. This isn't me, in fact.. I have no idea who this person is. But how easy was it for me to find this picture and say it's me? Too easy. That's the thing about the internet.. you never really know who you're talking to. I'm not talking about catfishing people (although that's bad enough). I'm talking about *Cyber Predators*. •••••••••••.
I see SOOO many people publically advertising their personal details.. first name? Sure. City you live in? Not too bad. But LAST names, Suburb, and even STREET?! Are you people crazy?!
•••••• "Oh, I trust you"- they say.
WELL YOU SHOULDN'T! "I know soo many people with my name in my suburb, no one would find me"... um HELLO? Let's say theres 30 other people in your area alone with your name.. but it's really not hard to narrow down. 17 of them could be middle aged, a further 6 of them arent in your age/maturity bracket.. and if you've mentioned your parents names.. Facebook is the easiest way of tracking them down and then they've found you and it's all over red rover. ••••••• I dont mean to scare anyone, but I really hope you are scared and take more caution.
I, along with anyone else online could be hiding behind a fake name and age. Not everyone is online to have fun and make friends... some have a hidden agenda, and it's not a pleasant one. ••••••••
Now I'm not saying you can't make friends with strangers.. because then what's the point of HH? I'm just saying to be wise... you're not invincible. •••••••••

#DGPUP OP Singh inaugurated a state of the art ‘Cyber Training Lab' of #UPPolice at UP100 Bhavan Lucknow.
This is one of the most sophisticated labs in the country equipped with the most advanced hardware and software systems.
#CyberSafety is an issue that more and more of our communities around the country have asked for Aangan’s support on because of the specific ways in which it can impact children and families living in vulnerable environments.
Our summer intern @anya.bhargava, a rising junior at @thestewardschool, decided to make this the topic of her final project, creating community resources and conducting #CyberSecurity awareness sessions with two of our #SignUpForSafety groups in Mumbai. The groups have decided to focus their next street play and documentary on this important subject, to spread awareness in their communities on threats presented by unsafe use of the internet.

When we use alarmist headlines and misuse and manipulate data to get eyes on articles or sell books, we are doing a great disservice to both parents and kids. When we take on fear without understanding, critical evaluation and realistic strategies, we miss a great opportunity to connect with our kids and understand the world they are growing up in. Head to the blog for more on how we can do better. Link in bio #gaming#digitalwellbeing
