Unfortunately, such kind of stories aren’t mere urban legends since they are really happening thus posing the internet savvy teenagers at great risks.

What can you do?

There’re a few online bullies that enjoying teenagers that are online. You should therefore ensure that you report the bullies in case that ever happens while you’re online so that they are stopped.
  • You should also ensure that you keep your private and personal details private. Don’t give out identifiable information or social security numbers via the internet. This is simply because some can utilize that information to take your identity.
  • Another thing that you should bear in mind is the fact that you should keep the passwords of various sites in a secure and safe location. You would really be disappointed if your weird school friend or your irritating little sibling hacks into your online account and starts to message other people. This is why we recommend that you privately keep all passwords in a secure and safe location that you’re the only one aware of.
  • Be genuine when online. You should not try to hide your identity behind that of another person when online since nobody is fond of people who fake identity. Therefore, if you decide to turn to the online dating sites, ensure that you’re yourself. This will make the people interacting with you appreciate you even more.

What you should not do?

  • You should not give out the real address, date of birth, location and name to anybody that you’ve met online. That individual may be a criminal portraying as another person, so they do not have to know your personal information.

  • Don’t send money to any person that you’ve met via the internet. There are many scam artists on the internet with enticing tricks so as to exploit teenagers. Don’t be their victim by giving them the routing number of your bank accounts or any other information that is related to your finances since your accounts may be hacked.
  • Don’t accept the friend requests of individuals that you don’t have any connection with.
  • Don’t send the sext pictures or engage in uncensored sex talks via the internet.
