Warwickshire Police has issued advice to help keep young people safe online.

The #BeCyberSmart campaign covers a range of topics, including cyber bullying and grooming.

Officers have provided the following advice:

> It is wrong to text, write or post anything that deliberately upsets another person.

> Think about how a message would make you feel if it was about you.

> If you do see or receive a message that worries or upsets you then tell a grown up straight away.

> If you know another person is receiving messages which concern or upset them then tell a grown up straight away.

> Always get a grown ups permission before using the internet or playing online games.

> Be careful not to put too much information about yourself on the internet, when you are playing online games for example. Do not give your name, age, address, email, phone number or school name when on the internet.

> Remember that people using the internet can lie about who they are and they can pretend to be someone they’re not.

> If you feel unsure or concerned about anything on the internet tell a grown up.
