Safe gaming guide

Power Up and Play is all about having fun whilst raising vital funds to end disability inequality. To keep you safe whilst gaming, we’ve created some top tips to follow.

Power Up and Power Off

Remember to take regular breaks when gaming for a long time. We’d recommend a minute break every 45 minutes of gameplay.

Keep personal information personal

Set your privacy settings and limit what other players can see. You should never need to disclose any personal details to other gamers online.

If you feel someone is being inappropriate and asking personal information, report them to the gaming or streaming service.

Stay legal

It might be tempting to download cheat programmes, but these can expose you to viruses and unsuitable content.

Power off the trolls!

You should never have to tolerate aggressive or inappropriate behaviour when gaming online. Block, mute, and report those who troll or bully you.
