Child’s play

The CyberSafe at USPS team encourages employees to teach their children online safety.

Reminder: The internet isn’t a playground. It’s important to teach your children about online safety.

If you’re a parent, the CyberSafe at USPS team offers these suggestions:

  • Talk to your kids about online safety.
  • Encourage children to come to you if they see something online that makes them feel uncomfortable.
  • Emphasize the concept of credibility. Remind kids that not everything they see online is true, and not everything on the internet is what it appears to be.
  • Tell children to keep their personal information private — including the names of family members and their school, telephone number and address.

The CyberSafe at USPS  and Department of Homeland Security sites have more guidelines.
