Celebrate Safer Internet Day with the Animal Jam Community today! The internet is an exciting place to learn, share, and connect with others, which is why it’s ALWAYS important to be SAFE online. To help increase safety and positive online experiences, we recommend these tips for parents and players:
-Keep your personal information private at all times in-game, including: first and last name, phone number, address, where you go to school, and social media usernames
-Use a secure and complex password and change it frequently. Don’t reuse passwords across multiple sites. NEVER share your passwords with anyone including your friends
-Increase your security by enabling two step authentication on your devices, email, and all your online accounts
-Do not meet someone in person that you met online or chat offline with players you do not know in real life
-Avoid clicking links from any suspicious emails or phishing sites asking you for your account info promising free membership, rare items, or currency.
-Speak with your parents or a trusted adult if you ever see something that makes you uncomfortable. Utilize the in-game reporting feature to report players for breaking the rules.
