Cyberbullying – Private chats

Have you become a victim of cyberbullying? Here’s what you can do:

In “semi-private” forums such as WhatsApp:

  • Always take a screenshot of the hate comment, making sure that it shows the platform, comment as well as date and time. This can be important if these types of comment are increasing and you want to do something about them.
  • Remove the author of the comments from the group or have them removed.
  • Ask the author to stop making such comments.

Constant bullying

  • If the comments are relevant under criminal law (insults, slander, threats etc.), you can report them to the police. The important thing is that you’ve got proof (screenshots).
  • If your children are subjected to bullying at school, it’s a good idea to discuss the matter further with the head teacher.

The psychological pressure from bullying is enormous, so you should seek help:
