June is Internet Safety Month
June 8, 2006 — June is Internet Safety Month, and RAINN commemorates it by reminding everyone of how important it is to protect yourself while online.
You may be at greater risk of stalking, harassment, or other crimes when you are online, because certain features that are unique to the Internet — such as the ability to access lots of information about people from many sources, in relative anonymity, and with the ease of a few keystrokes — make it easier to commit such crimes. While the Internet can be a powerful tool to gain knowledge and connect with other people, it is important to be aware of its dangers and the simple things you can do to stay safe.
RAINN created this Teen Internet Safety Quiz to allow you to test your own knowledge of online safety. Give yourself two points for every correct answer, and encourage your friends to test their knowledge as well by sending them a link to this site. We will have more information available on rainn.org shortly.
