What can be done?

Grooming Help children understand that they should never give out personal details to online friends. They could put themselves at risk as well as friends and families. Once information is online it is hard to remove – it can be copied, cached etc. Information about individuals is not just stored on their profiles – friends, family contacts can lead offenders to a victim Personal Information includes: Name E-mail address/messenger ID Mobile number Pictures of themselves or others Home address, school details Places they are going
