Internet Safety with Professor Garfield - Online Safety
After buying a special anniversary issue of the PET FORCE comic book, Nermal goes online to the PET FORCE message board. Excited to connect with other fans, Nermal starts chatting with someone who uses the online name “comic_cat12.” When comic_cat12 asks Nermal to meet in person and bring the special issue, Arlene is a bit skeptical. Enter Professor Garfield and Dr. Nova, who talk to Nermal about keeping his personal information safe online.
In addition to the story that unfolds, an interactive "Try" and "Apply" section are included to help users gain insight to safe surfing. Try your hand at using the Internet safely and Apply your knowledge to keep your personal information safe.
Through reading and interacting with the Try and Apply sections of this comic, users will:
• learn how to use the Internet safely and effectively
• understand that people online are not always who they say they are
• learn that they should never give out personal information without an adult’s permission,
especially if it conveys where they can be found at a particular time
• understand that predators are always present on the Internet

Ratings and Reviews
It would be good to use this app to help people learn what to do if they are getting emails from people who they don't know.
Excellent PSA app
This is a fun an engaging way to educate children and even adults about online safety. The comics are colorful and entice the easer to pay attention. The about section suggests this is one in a series of apps planned. I hope this is the case!
It' Great for Kids!
I'm 9 and I love it very much! Thank you!
