Online Predators

Know More Header Online Predators
Predators and cyberbullies can gain access to your kids through a variety of avenues, and the online world is full of places where they can reach your children.

While the vast majority of mobile apps and video game systems which are connected to the Internet are created with the best of intentions, they can also be used by predators and cyberbullies to gain access to our children and make them potential targets for sexual assault, domestic violence and even human trafficking. Parents should keep a close tab on what their kids are doing online, especially if they have their own smart phones, tablets or other devices that connect to the Internet.

Some of the most popular websites and mobile apps such as Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and Instagram have been used, but parents SHOULD be aware of these mobile apps that may be on their kids’ smart phones and other mobile devices:

Predators and cyberbullies can also gain access from video game systems such as Xbox or PlayStation, particularly in games where they play with (or against) other players online.

There are several mobile apps and websites available to parents that can help them keep a closer watch on what their kids are doing online. Parents SHOULD connect to their kids’ mobile devices through mobile apps that include:
