How to keep a record
While the worrying conversation is visible on the screen, create a picture of the screen:
- Push the button “print screen” on the keyboard.
- Open a word-document, right click and choose “paste” to insert the screen dump
- Save the word-document with the records and show it to someone you trust
If it is not possible to copy the conversation, then keep a note of the date and time of the chat, the person’s username, and it may be useful to make a note of the names of other people who saw this person behaving in this way to you.
- If someone makes you feel really uncomfortable while you are playing then you should just leave the game.
- If you feel that a communication via an online game becomes dangerous for you, don’t hesitate to tell an adult. They might want to report to the police. The police know about online harassment and have ways of identifying criminals online.
