Harassment is when someone deliberately causes you harm or distress
Online harassment can leave you feeling unsafe, anxious or depressed. It's an invasion of your privacy and it’s illegal.
You could be on the receiving end of online harassment if somebody is doing any of these things:
Continues the behaviour even after you told them to stop
Creates a fake profile and pretends to be you
Spreads rumours or gossip about you online
Logs into your online accounts when you don’t want them to
Deletes or edits your online accounts or posts
Sends you threatening messages or photos
If you’re being harassed online there are steps you can take to put a stop to it
“Kids Helpline were great. They gave me tips and made me feel like I wasn’t alone. I finally felt like there were things I could do to change the situation”
If anybody is harassing you online it’s important to tell someone and report it
