Glow has rich potential as a place for Scotland’s children and young people to become confident digital citizens. The following Glow Community Rules are aimed at supporting learners, teachers and parents to develop a good awareness of e-safety and to take full advantage of Glow and the Internet in a positive, safe and responsible way.
Password Guidance #
Passwords should be hard to guess to stop others being able to log into your account. However, this does not mean they should be hard to remember. Find out more about password guidance with some tips on choosing a secure password.
Video in Glow #
