Privacy and Security

Just as in real life, it is important that teens know who they can trust with their information on the Internet. Entering information such as their name, age, and address into forms and profiles online is common, but teens can be tracked by companies or tricked into scams that put themselves at risk for identity theft. Maybe they are tricked into filling out a form for a fake sweepstakes. Maybe they click on an attachment that installs spyware on their computer. Or maybe they click on ads and enter their email address, which the advertiser can then sell to other companies.
