Being a victim of cyberbullying can be one of the worst experiences one can ever go through in life. The abuse never goes away and it’s forever etched in the memory of the internet.

Cyberbullying has no geographical boundaries. It can follow you to your work, school, home, living room, bedroom or even to the washroom. Anywhere you can get an internet connection – you can be cyberbullied.

There is no time limit or any limit to the extent of the abuse either. This puts a lot of mental stress on people who are cyberbullied.

If you or someone you know is a victim of this hideous crime, here are a couple of things you can do to protect yourself:

  1. Change your privacy settings.

Make sure that all of your social media accounts have very strict privacy settings. Set your accounts to “friends only” or “private.”

2. Block and un-friend.

Block any harassing accounts, email addresses, or phone numbers.

3. Keep your personal details private.

Don’t post your home address, phone number, school name, or any other personal information about yourself.

4. Take a break from your phone or computer.

If it feels like the online bullying just won’t stop, take a break from social media. Turn off your phone or put it out of your sight.

We hope this helps. It’s also advisable to talk to someone about your mental health if you’re experiencing cyberbullying.
