Safety Tips for Live Streaming
- Never give out personal information. Things like your home address and telephone number are a No No.
- Within your live broadcast you can be giving away lots of small clues, which when put together can add up to a lot of information. Things like what your house looks like, its street name, your car number plate, what event or location you’re at, even a letter in the background might let someone pick up personal information.
- When live broadcasting remember to disable your location. Then the location you’re broadcasting from can’t be picked up by random ‘friends’.
- Children and young people do broadcast alone from within their bedroom. This can be a major concern regarding privacy for them and the family, so it’s important rules and boundaries are in place for videoing in the home.
