This page contains some tips to remain safe on the Scratch website. Remember to 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 GarageBand
    2. Open Preferences (Ctrl-,)
    3. Open the "My Info" tab
    4. Delete your name from the text boxes.

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 or C:/Users/Yourname/Documents/image.jpg). They won't work and might give away personal information.
  • With an external paint editor, black out personal information from screenshots.
