How to Stay Safe Online
  • How to Stay Safe Online

  • Digital spaces are a positive force for change, connection and community, but left unregulated, they are not always safe. Globally, women are 27 times more likely than men to be harassed online. 78% of LGBTQ+ people have experienced hate crime and hate speech online and there has been a 71% rise in online disability abuse.

    How to Stay Safe Online will teach you how to spot, respond to, and protect yourself from online abuse and learn how to be a good ally to those experiencing it. An urgent and necessary digital self-care tool, this book will help you to support victims and empower friends, teachers, parents and willing allies to report abuse to social media companies and make online spaces safer.

    With a blend of practical advice, Seyi's personal experiences and potential interviews with Hera Hussain, Gabby Edlin, Laura Bates, Yassmin Abdel, Diane Abbott, How to Stay Safe Online will:

    · Provide practical tips on how to confidently navigate online spaces
    · Teach you how to report and react to online abuse
    · Provide information for employers, parents and teachers
    · Teach you how to set boundaries and use the internet as a force for good
    · Help you create your own digital self-care plan

    This will be the go-to guide to developing resilience, compassion and allyship online.
