It’s no secret that the Internet acts as a breeding ground for hatred, but that’s precisely why VpnMentor has compiled a guide for LGBTQ+ individuals to stay safe online.
In their guide, they note that, through their own surveying, that 73% of surveyors had been harassed online. Though their guide (and surveying) is aimed at LGBTQ+ individuals, anyone experiencing bullying or hatred online can benefit from their tips and tricks. The full guide can be found here.
Most of us are handy with social media, but we may not all know how to quiet those that threaten us. Because of this, the guide shows how to block people on the most popular media platforms, namely Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube.
If you want to prevent hateful people from finding you in the first place, the guide has you covered as well. With step-by-step instructions, it shows you how to manage your privacy settings on the same variety of media platforms.
The guide also goes on to discuss other realms of online presence. It offers tips on how to update social accounts after transitioning if you are transgender, and it offers tips for online dating that anyone can use.
These are just a handful of the topics discussed throughout VpnMentor’s guide, but we implore you to take a look through it, especially if you are LGBTQ+. We want to see everyone remain safe and happy online.
