This page contains some tips to remain safe on the Scratch website. It contains Scratch-specific tips only, not general internet safety tips.

  • Keep personal information private. Don't share your email address, phone number, or other personal contact information.

File sharing

Sharing music

  • When sharing music you created with Audacity, Garageband, etc., check to see if your name or personal information has been added on in the credits.
  • Mac OS X tends to put your name on Garageband projects. To clear this,
  1. Open the file in Finder
  2. Right-click, navigate to Get Info...
  3. In the new panel, you will see two text boxes with your name in them, put your Scratch username in them.

Sharing images

  • When sharing images on the Scratch forums, host the images on a non-personal domain. A personal family site is not a good idea.
  • Do not use your email to host them.
  • Do not use local file paths (i.e. file:///someone/somewhere/something.png). They won't work and might give away personal information.
  • With an external paint editor, black out personal information from screenshots.
