Always keeping your smartphone close, checking for notifications every other minute, are just some of the examples of what can result in digital stress. At the same time, people spent increased amounts of time in front of screens and desks, spending their whole workday sitting and not moving much. Health and safety do not just mean being healthy and safe online but also using a comfortable and healthy workspace. In youth work, another big aspect of safety online is online bullying. The internet allows people to interact bluntly, often without facing repercussions for their actions directly. Thus, fostering online bullying and insults. Especially in youth work it is vital to inform young people of the dangers and consequences online bullying can have on others and themselves. Security Lastly, digital security focuses on practising safe and secure interactions online. Most people who often interact online or are active on the internet encounter suspicious links, too-good-to-be-true discounts and offers, as well as people claiming to be someone they are not. Despite institutions, like banks and insurance companies, sending out warning emails and messages to inform people to not share their information or any critical data with others on the internet, there are still many who fall victim to such scams. Thinking that this only concerns others, many people often think they know what is safe and what is not. But even such fraud cases evolve, and scammers change their practices. There might be new ways they are trying to trick people, so it is essential to stay-up-todate and keep oneself informed. The golden rule of online security is still: Do not share any personal information (real name, address, any money-related information, social security data, passwords, etc.) with anyone online unless you have met them and/or fully trust them. Banks and other serious institutions will never ask for any sensitive data from you via messenger or digital chat.
