Social media is public, so anything you post could be read by anyone. Be careful what you share about yourself. Anyone who sees your post will be able to see your profile picture and name. It’s always important to stay safe online.

If you don’t want people to know you follow Childline on social media, you can just read or watch our posts and videos without ‘liking’ or commenting on them.

The NSPCC may need to call the police to help protect you. If you want to talk to someone confidentially, you can always talk to a Childline counsellor on 0800 1111 or over 1-2-1 counsellor chat.
