Offensive content


When you’re surfing the web you may come across websites and other material that is offensive, obscene or illegal. There are some easy ways to handle these situations.


Report the content to a trusted adult.
Seek help from your mother, father or an older brother or sister.
Know how to ‘escape’ from a website if an internet search takes you to an unpleasant, offensive, obscene or illegal website. Hit control-alt-delete if the site will not allow you to exit.
Surf on. If a website looks suspicious or has a warning page for people under 18 years, leave immediately.
Set your search engine to block ‘offensive’ or adult material.
