Not everything online is bad, nor does danger lurk behind every new app that comes to market. But keeping up with your teens’ and preteens’ online activities can become hard to manage, especially for the less tech savvy parents out there.
We have put together a page of the most popular apps, social networks and games that can allow strangers to talk directly with your children.
The reality is, some of these apps are likely to be on your kid’s devices already. The best control you have (besides taking the phone away) is to just have a talk with them about the dangers of chatting with strangers and how there is no such thing as texts, videos, or photos that disappear.
