Instant messaging and chat rooms have become very popular with the current generation. Since the advent of social media, these things have become very common and we are able to interact with people from all over the world.

Who Are You Really Talking To?

But we never know who we are talking to so we must be aware of the things that we share online because one can turn out to be someone else and can cause a lot of trouble for us.

Here are some precautions that you can take before going into a chat room:

Think Before You Speak

Think before you speak, because once you’ve said something you will not be able to take it back.

Personal Information

Do not share your personal information like your real name, address, phone number.

Don’t meet someone privately whom you met in free online chat rooms. If you must meet, then plan a meet up in a public place and bring along your friends.
