Privacy is the best policy
Take some moment and go through all the account or place where you store and save your private data. Keep the privacy of your social media and data to be your first priority and make sure your privacy settings are on red alert. Try googling your name and monitor what comes up, make sure your social media don’t give up anything like email address, address, number
Don’t Response or retaliate
I know this probably the hardest thing to shake off as you’re constantly being provoked by those awful mean messages but don’t get carried away. It’s tempting I understand but thing way responding to the bullies will encourage the as you’re giving what they want REACTION. Just delete the message and bi Buzz off.
BLOCK the VOICE
Well do you know what’s better than ignoring the bullies, making it almost impossible to contact or message you. How will you do that, well if you’re on some kind of messaging app then set your settings so that only your contacts and friends can message you and if this fails we do have another path to go over try being underground (not literally) block any anonymous user or person likely to be dangerous. If you could temporarily deactivate your social media, stuff this sounds but for bullies it is like sucker punch on the face.
Telling and gathering proofs
First thing you should always do to threatening messages and bullies is to report them to the help center or whichever center you may like but surely DO. It is known that cyberbullying is a punishable offence, heavy penalty and sentence can be charged against the guilty. Tho some people may think that their identity is hidden so they can have got away with everything but what they don’t know that they’re leaving cyber imprints and with investigation they’ll get caught in no time. Always gather sufficient and solid proofs against these bullies by saving the emails and messages, you may show this to some other person which is extremely helpful.
Always remember you’re never alone, there many anti-cyberbullying centers where you can ask for help don’t give up on yourself fight against the parasites and be strong. they owe nothing of you so why pretend and show weak. Stand and take necessary precautions. Stay Safe.
