Default Internet Safety and YOU!!

Hiya Bearville Insiders

Some of our members have expressed concern about internet safety recently.


Bearville Insider is a moderated site - meaning there are adults online who have passed background checks that are watching over the forum to provide a safe, yet fun, environment.

If you have a concern, please address the staff directly, by VM or by flagging/reporting a post.



Here are few things to keep in mind:

NEVER EVER give out personal information. This is for your safety.

This means, do not give out any information that could be used to identify you, your location, your friends or your family.

Do not post photos of yourself, your home, your neighborhood, etc.
Do not share the name of your school, your school mascot, your town/city, your age, a description of yourself, etc.

Do not give out your phone number, address, or any contact information.

Never share your password with anyone! You should also change your password regularly - make it something you can remember but that no one else can guess. Use letters, numbers and symbols (@#$%^&*)

Do not visit strange sites without a parent's permission, and preferably, have a parent with you if you are going to "surf" the internet.



Your safety is our #1 concern. Please help us by protecting yourself as well.

Thanks for the advice
my mom took me to this one clinic or seminar or wehatever you call it, and the police showed us how they could find a kids name, parents name, street and location, and a whole ton of other personal stuff! just on a kids website!
it was really scary to see how much they could find out!

Yeah, i saw this video on a website my teacher showed me, there was a person that found out a lot about someone in a chat room!They found the address, phone number, full name, family members, the school they went to, and the persons address just by looking at their online profile!

thanks pandyma for the advice!
