-Protect your personal information. When you send mails, smses, and photos to people who are not trusted friends don’t give out personal information. It could lead to them finding your physical location and exploiting you later.

-Control negativity. All chat platforms and social networking websites allow you to block people. If you ever receive an abusive or obscene message report the message and block the person if needed.

-Use a filter. Yahoo!’s default Safe-Search filter helps keep inappropriate content out of your search results. Safe Search will make a big difference as far as keeping unwanted content out of your search results is concerned.

-Download only trusted applications. When downloading software from third parties, make sure it’s only from developers you trust. Read their policies to grasp what kind of permissions you'll, in effect, be giving them when you download their apps.
