What Teens Are Really Up To Online

Monday, August 29th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Security Help

The digital age can be a scary place for teens and parents. According to a survey by Stay Safe Online, 60% of teens admit that they’ve created an online account without telling their parents. But only 27% of parents suspect that their kids have secret accounts.  And only 32% of kids thing they need to report online incidents that made them scared or uncomfortable to their parents. 48% of teens say they “never” or “rarely” turn to their parents for help with an online problem.


Nearly 40% of kids reported some type of online harassment or cyberbullying over topics like their appearance or something they said or did at school.

While parents may think kids know to come to them with problems, many kids just don’t feel that way. It’s up to parents to stay vigilant and up-to-date with popular social media services, because in a lot of cases, your child isn’t going to tell you if there’s a problem.
