Hi, penguin family!
Today is Safer Internet Day, which makes it an awesome time to talk about, well, internet safety! As you know, safety is at the top of our priority list (right next to fun and three up from cheese graters). We are continuously working to make the island an amazing place for all penguins, but there are a few things you can do to stay safe while you’re online.
Never share personal information. Whether you’re on the island, the CPI blog, or anywhere else online, you should never share your real name, your age, where you live or go to school, or your contact information. If someone asks, ignore them!
Passwords are off limits, too. The only person who should know your password (besides you, of course) is your parent or guardian. Additionally, on CPI, your penguin name is public, but your username isn’t. We recommend you keep your CPI username to yourself, too.
Steer clear of anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. If someone does or says something that makes you feel uncomfortable, tell a parent or guardian right away. (For more tips on how to handle difficult situations on Club Penguin Island, click here.)
Choose a penguin name that doesn’t give away your real name or location. This is another important way to protect your privacy online. We recommend creating a name with the help of your parent or guardian!
We hope you found those tips helpful, penguin pals. All of today’s Daily Challenges have internet safety themes, so be sure to check them out! Leave us a comment if you have more questions.
