Stay safe whilst online gaming

Online gaming can be great especially during the school holidays. In the majority of cases, it is a fun and safe pastime … a way for you to play against and socialise with friends.

However, as with many things you do online, there’s an element of risk. This is because of the vast number of people in the UK and abroad who are also playing, the minimal restrictions involved and the fact that they’re not face-to-face – so you can’t be sure who they are … or what their motives are.

The risks include being taken advantage of by strangers with sexual, abusive, fraudulent or other criminal motives. You can find yourself playing games with an inappropriate age rating, running up huge bills and getting ‘hooked’ to the exclusion of exercise, socialising and school work.

Get Safe Online has some fantastic advice on how to minimise the risks associated with online gaming – check out their website.
