How to Chat Safely?

 

You should only chat with people who you trust or who you know well. Avoid sharing your personal information if you don’t want the online public to know anything personal about you. If you agree online to meet someone in person, then meet him in a public place and take someone with you too. Never accept the file that you see unexpectedly in a chatroom and do not click on untrustworthy links when chatting online.
