Online Abuse

Strategies to protect yourself

If you are a victim of online abuse:
  • Do not respond directly to the person or group who attacked, insulted or humiliated you online.
    Record the abusive contents that are bothering you so that you can gather evidence of what is happening.
  • If the situation happened by email, save what you have received in another folder. You can define rules in your spam filter so that emails sent from that address can be immediately forwarded to the spam folder.
  • If the situation happened on social networks, such as facebook, block this person or group and report the abusive content. Go to your privacy settings and define who may or may not access and post on your profile.
  • Tell a trusted adult what is happening.
