SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) - Tuesday is National Safer Internet Day.

Some tips to stay safe online include never sharing personal photos with strangers. Also, avoid sharing your location on social media.

Sherman police suggest awareness is the first step in protecting yourself from online predators. 

"Another thing parents can do, there's a lot of apps and software out there they can use that allows the parental controls on their online access as well as it monitors what they're doing online," said Sgt. Brett Mullen. "It even monitors keystrokes with what they're typing in."
