Chat rooms for adults a teenagers
It can be difficult to know what technology is out there as new apps and functions pop up daily and young people seem to know how it works inside and out very quickly.
Even telling someone the name of their town, their school or where they sometimes hang out may be enough to identify them.
It is important that they remember they can just turn their computer off and walk away at any point they like.
Inform your teen of the importance of maintaining their privacy whilst in chat rooms.
Webcams can also be hacked into and turned on without your teen’s knowledge so it is important that they turn their webcams off properly, perhaps even by covering the lens when the webcam is not in use.
Unfortunately, the anonymity the internet offers can lead people to forget social boundaries.
