What do you do if you click on a website which has pictures or words that upset you?

  • Press the minimise button to hide the website. You can tell an adult you trust that you have seen something that upset you.
  • If you are using a tablet or a phone a website is hidden when you press the home button. Tell an adult you trust so that they can look at what has upset you.
  • You can close the website. But it can be better to minimise it. That way, when you tell an adult about what has happened they can have a look.
