Online Child Protection
Our new generation is getting exposure to cyber space at a very young age. Children invest time online to play games, make friends, and use social networking sites and so on. In fact with smart phones access to social networking, online games, shopping, etc. has increased significantly. The cyber space connects us virtually with crores of online users from across the globe. With increasing use of cyber space, cybercrimes are also increasing rapidly. Children are highly vulnerable as they are exposed to cyber space with limited understanding of cyber threats and safeguards. They like to experiment, learn new things and use new technologies. While experimenting is a good way to learn, it is equally important that proper guidance is provided to children so that they can protect themselves from adverse impact of cyber technology.
