UK Safer Internet Centre – Using anonymous online platforms

The UK Safer Internet Centre shares tips for professionals on talking to young people about anonymous online platforms. These are messaging apps which allow anyone to leave anonymous feedback about you upon request. Advice professionals may want to give includes: think about your audience and how the people reading your content will feel before you send it; make sure you understand who can see what you post and learn how you can change this should you want to make amends at a later date; if you have seen or received something that has upset you or made you feel uncomfortable, then speak to someone you trust.
