Gaming safely

Games consoles with internet access allows users to play against people, anywhere in the world. 

Whilst online gaming can be great fun, there are also great risks. Be careful not to share any personal information about yourself or use screen usernames that could identify who you are. Instead, you may wish to consider using an alias. 

Never share any personal details about yourself, such as;

  • instant messenger address
  • mobile number
  • email address
  • name
  • photos
  • where you work or study
  • your home address.
