Remember chat buddies may not be who they say they are.
Other chatters can only see your nickname, not your number. Be cautious of other chatters who ask too many personal
questions – especially if they won't stop asking, even after you've told them not to.
If another chatter asks things that make you uncomfortable, nervous or scared stop communicating with them and send
the IGNORE command to 220 to block them out.
It's best not to have face-to-face meetings with chat room friends. If you really REALLY want to, play it safe:
- Tell a parent or trusted adult friend what you are doing and when.
- Go with a group of friends.
- Meet in a public place.
- Take your mobile with you.
- Don't rely on your new chat friend for transport anywhere
Always chat with the respect you'd expect from others.
If ever you ever feel a bit weird, tell someone you trust.
