Posting pictures and videos

A few years ago most people only took a camera to special occasions like parties or holidays. Now we carry cameras all the time - on our phones.

You can take some snaps or shoot a video anywhere and share them online in no time. Photos and videos can be a great way to show your friends what you’re up to.

But remember, it can be really hard, sometimes impossible, to delete pictures or videos from the internet or other people’s mobiles. Once you’ve shared something online or on your mobile you’ve lost control of it - it can be copied, shared and even edited!

If you send an embarrassing picture or video to a friend it could end up anywhere. If you post it online anyone could see it, including your parents, teachers or future employers!

Remember – it’s never too late to get help if you’ve shared something you regret. You can report photos and videos to the websites they are on or seek help from an adult you trust.
