image of Guidelines for Children on Child Online Protection

This manual contains guidelines for children and young people in all parts of the world on how to keep themselves and others safe online. However, a young internet user of seven years of age is very unlikely to have the same needs or interests as a 12 year old just starting at High School or a 17 year old on the brink of adulthood. At different points in the Guidelines, the advice or recommendations fits these different contexts.




By keeping these basic rules in mind, you will be able to steer clear of the majority of the pitfalls you can encounter online. Should you encounter unpleasant or disturbing experiences, make sure you talk to a trusted source. Remember, you have the right to be protected as well as the responsibility to act appropriately, offline as well as online.
