The modern digital era has provided many opportunities. At the same time, it has given rise to new problems, such as cyberbullying. Unfortunately, aggression on social media can cause serious emotional and psychological pressure on a person. SSPDaily has shared some tips to help fight this phenomenon.

Definition of cyberbullying and harassment on the Internet

Cyberbullying and online harassment can take many forms, including offensive comments, threats, spreading rumors, and even creating fake profiles to attack a person. If you become a victim of any of these methods, you should take immediate action.

Ways to protect yourself online

  • Document everything

Record all offensive messages, comments, or interactions. This documentation may be useful if you decide to contact law enforcement.

  • Block and report

Most social networks and websites have mechanisms for blocking and reporting harassing users. Use these tools to protect yourself and prevent further interaction.

  • Adjust your privacy

Adjust your privacy settings to control who can see your messages and interact with you online.

  • Limit personal information

Be careful when posting personal information online. Remember that the less information potential stalkers have, the more difficult it will be for them to harm you.

Seek help from a trusted person

  • Talk to someone

Reach out to friends, family members, or coworkers you trust. People close to you can provide emotional support and valuable advice.

  • Contact the authorities

If the harassment intensifies or is accompanied by threats, you should contact the appropriate authorities, such as the police or school administration (depending on the situation).
