Don't give away any private info,
Because someone could get you, friend or foe.
Don't share your address or your last name.

Your friends' info is not good to tell,
Or you will get in trouble as well.
Don't share anything that is unique to you,
Or else your family will be blue.

Would you like to enter a New York State computer safety contest? The goal is to create posters that will encourage students to use the Internet safely and securely.
