Blogger Tricks Animal Jam Graphic Central!: Internet Safety Tips!

Internet Safety Tips!

The Internet is an amazing place, but there are some safety rules that you have to follow every time you are on the Internet to ensure that you and your personal information are kept safe!

  • If someone is making you feel uncomfortable, just leave. If you are on a chat room, save a copy of the chat so that you have it later for reference (just in case things get messy) and close the window or exit the chat room. On Animal Jam, you can leave the room that the person is in, or block them and continue on with your business.
  • Never share your personal information when you are online. Even when you are talking with someone that you think you can trust, it is better not to share your personal information. This includes your age, name, address, password and other information that you wouldn't just share with any old stranger.
  • Create strong passwords. A password like abc123 or even a one or two word password like animaljam is putting you in danger of getting hacked. There are computer programs that can guess an easy password in less than an hour. Take the extra few seconds to secure your accounts with strong, secure passwords. To create a strong password, you can think of a random adjective (ex: fluffy) and then slap 3-4 random symbols or numbers after it (ex: &6^8). Then, add a random noun or verb (ex: foot) and 4-5 numbers or symbols after (ex: 45#2@). Boom, you have a nearly impossible to guess password! (ex: FLUFFY&6^8foot45#2@)
  • Never open emails that look suspicious. If you get an email from someone that you have never heard of, then just put it in spam or the trash. Remember- some emails carry dangerous links, viruses and other horrible things. It's better not to get involved.
  • Be careful where you type your passwords. There are many sites that have been created to look like the real ones, just to get people's passwords when they type them in to the fake login. Do not fall for this. Only type your passwords in the actual site.

Hi guys! I am so happy you've decided to share your opinions on AJGC! Make sure to read/follow the following bullets:
- You guys probably know- no swearing, not even ***, no mocking or making fun of others and no judging.
- Free commenting (no moderation) is a privilege, if I see 1 inappropriate comment, comment moderation is turned on for all of you, sorry, I just don't want this to be an unsafe environment.
- If you are caught being mean to another viewer, you will have all of your comments deleted. You only have 2 chances before you are banned from ever having your comment appear again on the blog.
- I have absolutely no problem with you advertising your own blog/site in the comment section, I just request that you write an actual comment about the post or page before advertising your own site. Flat out advertising comments will not be deleted, but they make the comment area more of a spammy place- get what I mean?
- Please do not request diamond or membership codes. If you are looking for gem codes, then make sure to check out our Codes page. But if I catch you threatening another jammer, demanding a membership or diamond code, I will turn on comment moderation.
- When commenting anonymously, you must sign your username.
Sorry if these rules sounded harsh, I'm sure most of you already know the commenting rules, they are virtually the same for every blog.
Happy commenting!
