Internet Safety Rules  
By  Abby

Internet safety is very important and yet some people don't know about it. Telling people information that could track you down could end up in a serious and dangerous situation. Some of these things could happen accidently like when you're talking to someone online, or on a website that can trick you into telling information. That's why it's important to know when you're on a bad website or talking to somebody dangerous. Even those pop ups that say, "You can win 1,000 dollars if you tell us your credit card number!" can be fake. Most of the time these are scams.  That's why these rules can help you when you're on the internet. Learn these rules so you can stay safe online!
