In school we use Zip It! Block It! Flag It! to remind us how to act safely on the Internet.

The code has three simple actions:

  • Zip it – keep your personal stuff private and think about what you say and do online
  • Block it – block people who send you nasty messages and don’t open unknown links and attachments
  • Flag it – flag up with someone you trust if anything upsets you or if someone asks to meet you offline

Garfield also reminds us how to keep safe on the Internet. Remember don’t share your YAPPY online as it is your personal information.
