Keep your personal info SAFE online

by , under Safety First

 

Staying safe while playing Animal Jam is easy! You can have fun and play wild if you know what to do.

NEVER give out any personal information online.  It’s against the AJ Rules, but it’s just not safe!

Some examples of personal information are:

o Your real name
o Your home address
o Your phone number
o Your email address
o Your age
o The name of your school

Be creative with your username – don’t use personal info in it.  If your username has your personal information in it, such as your first and last name or your birthday, have your parents send an email to support @ animaljam.com and we will be happy to help change your username for you!

• Never meet someone or have them visit you without the permission of your parents or a trusted adult. NEVER agree to a face-to-face meeting with someone you only know through chatting online. Remember that people online may not be who they say they are. Be safe and let your parents know if anyone you meet online asks to meet you in person!

• Remember, Animal Jam will NEVER ask for your personal information while you play in Jamaa. If someone is asking for your personal information, they are not part of AJHQ and you shouldn’t tell them anything that should be kept safe!

Be sure to visit Jamaa and take the Online Safety Quiz to learn more about things you can do to stay safe online!
