    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    If a website asks for your parent's permission before you can use it, you should

    • A.

      Click okay. Your parents/teachers won't mind.

    • B.

      Ask your parent/teacher permission to use the site.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Ask your parent/teacher permission to use the site.
    Explanation
    When a website asks for your parent's permission before you can use it, it is important to ask your parent or teacher for permission to use the site. This is because they are responsible for your online safety and can help you make informed decisions about the websites you visit. Clicking okay without their permission may not be safe and could potentially expose you to inappropriate content or online risks. Asking your friend for permission is not a suitable option as they do not have the authority or responsibility to grant permission on behalf of your parents or teachers.

      Only your parents or guardians

    Correct Answer
    D. Only your parents or guardians
    Explanation
    When creating passwords and usernames for personal accounts, it is important to prioritize security and privacy. Sharing this information with only your parents or guardians ensures that it remains confidential and reduces the risk of unauthorized access to your accounts. Parents or guardians are usually responsible for protecting and guiding their children, making them the most trusted individuals to share such sensitive information with. Sharing it with friends, even best friends, can increase the chances of the information being compromised or misused.

    Explanation
    If a message that is posted online is mean or negative in any way, or makes you feel uncomfortable, it is important to tell or show it to a teacher or a parent. They can provide guidance and support on how to handle the situation appropriately. Ignoring the message may not resolve the issue, and responding to the message might escalate the situation further. Calling 911 is not necessary unless there is an immediate threat to your safety.

    A. Screen name
    Explanation
    It is okay to use a screen name on the internet because it helps protect your identity and personal information. Using a screen name instead of your real name can prevent strangers from easily identifying and locating you. It adds an extra layer of privacy and security, reducing the risk of cyberbullying, stalking, or identity theft.

    Explanation
    This answer is correct because it emphasizes the importance of having a password that is easy for the user to remember, but difficult for others to guess. It advises against using personal information such as birthdays, pet's names, or something only known by the user and their best friend, as these can be easily guessed by others. The answer highlights the need for a strong and unique password to ensure the security of personal accounts and information.

This can lead to unauthorized access, privacy breaches, financial loss, and potential harm to your online presence and personal information. It is crucial to keep passwords confidential and not share them with anyone to maintain security and protect yourself from these risks.

    If someone steals your password at school, the appropriate action would be to tell a teacher and change your password. By informing a teacher, you are involving a trusted authority figure who can take appropriate action to address the situation. Additionally, changing your password ensures that the thief no longer has access to your account, protecting your personal information and preventing further unauthorized access.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Harassment through the Internet that is rude and/or threatening is

    • A.

      Cyberbullying

    • B.

      Email

    • C.

      Nice

    • D.

      Feedback

    Correct Answer
    A. Cyberbullying
    Explanation
    Cyberbullying refers to the act of using the internet or other digital technologies to harass, intimidate, or threaten someone. It involves rude and offensive behavior that can cause emotional distress and harm to the victim. Unlike email, which is a means of communication, cyberbullying is a negative and harmful behavior. "Nice" and "feedback" do not accurately describe the concept of harassment through the internet, making cyberbullying the correct answer in this context.

      Respond to the message and tell the person what you think

    • B.

      Save and show the messages to a parent, guardian or trusted adult

    • C.

      Just ignore the messages

    • D.

      Delete and ignore the messages

    Correct Answer
    B. Save and show the messages to a parent, guardian or trusted adult
    Explanation
    When you receive a rude or hurtful message on the computer, it is important to save and show the messages to a parent, guardian, or trusted adult. By doing so, you are seeking guidance and support from someone who can help you handle the situation appropriately. They may be able to provide advice on how to deal with the message, report it if necessary, or provide emotional support. Ignoring or deleting the messages may not address the issue effectively and may leave you feeling unsupported.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    It is all right to give out personal information online in the following instances:

    • A.

      If you have been chatting with a friend online for several weeks and know that person well

    • B.

      When your best friend has given out his/her information and nothing bad has happened

    • C.

      If your online friend wants to meet you in a public place

    • D.

      Never

    Correct Answer
    D. Never
    Explanation
    It is not safe to give out personal information online in any instance. Sharing personal information online, even with someone you have been chatting with for a while or if your best friend has done it without any issues, can still pose risks. Meeting an online friend in a public place does not guarantee safety either. It is always important to prioritize your online privacy and security by not disclosing personal information to anyone online.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    If someone creates a social-networking page (such as Facebook or My Space)  in your name you should

    • B.

      Create one of your own

    • C.

      Show it to your friends

    • D.

      Tell your parents and contact the site administrator.

    Correct Answer
    D. Tell your parents and contact the site administrator.
    Explanation
    If someone creates a social-networking page in your name, it is important to tell your parents and contact the site administrator. This is the correct answer because creating a social-networking page in someone else's name without their consent is a form of identity theft or impersonation. By informing your parents, they can help you take the necessary steps to protect your identity and privacy. Contacting the site administrator is crucial as they can investigate the situation, take down the fraudulent page, and potentially take legal action against the person responsible. Ignoring it or creating your own page may not address the issue and could potentially lead to further harm.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Trust is typically built over time through consistent interactions and shared experiences.

Schools typically have policies in place that restrict or prohibit the use of social media during school hours to ensure that students remain focused on their studies. Additionally, accessing social media platforms can also pose security risks and expose students to inappropriate content. Therefore, it is generally not allowed or encouraged to use social networking sites while at school.

    Making copies of copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder is considered a violation of intellectual property rights and is illegal.

    A. True
    Explanation
    When setting up a profile online, it is important to talk to your parents about what information is safe to use online.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to inform your parents or a trusted adult if someone you met online wants to meet you in person. This is because meeting someone in person whom you have only interacted with online can be risky and potentially dangerous.

It is always best to exercise caution and only share personal information with trusted individuals.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    If someone you just met on the internet constantly sends you emails, follows you in to chat rooms, and tries to Instant Message you even after you have ignored them, then that person might be cyberstalking you.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If someone you just met on the internet is persistently sending you emails, following you into chat rooms, and trying to Instant Message you despite being ignored, it is likely that they are cyberstalking you. Cyberstalking refers to the act of using electronic communication to harass or intimidate someone, and the given behavior pattern aligns with this definition. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    If someone online says they are in high school and taking driver's ed classes, then they are for sure a 16 year old student.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement cannot be assumed to be true because not all high school students are necessarily 16 years old. Some students may start high school at a younger or older age depending on various factors such as academic performance, grade repetition, or early graduation. Additionally, not all high school students take driver's education classes, as this may be optional or not available in certain schools or regions. Therefore, it is not accurate to conclude that someone online who claims to be in high school and taking driver's ed classes must be a 16-year-old student.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    While surfing the internet, you get an error message from your internet provider asking you for your password and a credit card number or it will delete your account.  Should you send the information?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    You should not send the information because this is likely a phishing attempt. Legitimate internet providers would not ask for your password and credit card number in this manner. It is important to be cautious and protect your personal information from potential scams or frauds.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    You are talking to someone online, and they know some of the same people you know.  Since they have many of the same friends as you, is it OK to give them your phone number if they ask?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    It is not advisable to give your phone number to someone online just because they know some of the same people as you. Knowing mutual friends does not guarantee that the person is trustworthy or has good intentions. It is important to prioritize your safety and privacy when interacting with strangers online.
