TIPS

Documenting incidences is critical to stopping cyberbullying and online harassment:

  • Be careful. Don’t click on anything you shouldn’t.
  • Take screen captures. If you’re on the move, take them on your mobile device.
  • The best screen captures include the full browser, especially the URL. It’s easiest to get what you need on a desktop or laptop. If you’re on a Mac, make sure your window is set to show the full URL.
  • Be consistent with your naming convention. Make sure it’s meaningful to you.
  • Profile Name - URL or extension - Description - Date of Screen Capture – Number in Sequence

Naming convention examples:
