Parents should stay involved in their children's digital world, know the apps they use, use parental 
controls where possible, and block and report people who make them feel uncomfortable.
Kids should talk with a trusted adult so they understand online risks, only chat with people 
they know, ensure their online accounts are private, block people they don’t know or trust, and 
trust their instinct—if something makes them feel uncomfortable, tell a trusted adult about it. 

Kids and parents should stay alert—people aren’t always who they seem in online environments 
where identity is easy to fake. 

Stay safe at home. Stay safe online. 

To report an online child sexual exploitation offense, call 911 or go to 

Due to school closings, stay-at-home orders, and hybrid learning because of the COVID-19 
pandemic, children’s increased online presence may put them at greater risk of child exploitation. 
Parents, guard-ians, caregivers, and teachers can take the following measures to help 
protect children from becoming victims of online child predators . 


Discuss internet safety and develop an online safety plan with children before they engage 
in online activity. Establish clear guidelines, teach children to spot red flags, and encourage 
children to have open communication with you. 

Supervise young children’s use of the internet, including periodically checking their profiles 
and posts. Keep electronic devices in open, common areas of the home and consider setting 
time limits for their use. 

Review games, apps, and social media sites before they are downloaded or used by children. 
Pay particular attention to apps and sites that feature end-to-end encryption, direct messaging, 
video chats, file uploads, and user anonymity, which are frequently relied upon by online 
child predators. 

Adjust privacy settings and use parental controls for online games, apps, social medial sites, 
and electronic devices. 

Tell children to avoid sharing personal information, photos, and videos online in public forums 
or with people they do not know in real life. Explain to your children that images posted 
online will be perma-nently on the internet. 

Teach children about body safety and boundaries, including the importance of saying ‘no’ to 
inappropriate requests both in the physical world and the virtual world. 

Be alert to potential signs of abuse, including changes in children’s use of electronic devices, 
attempts to conceal online activity, withdrawn behavior, angry outbursts, anxiety, and 

Encourage children to tell a parent, guardian, or other trusted adult if anyone asks them to 
engage in sexual activity or other inappropriate behavior. 

Immediately report suspected online enticement or sexual exploitation of a child by calling 
911, con-tacting the FBI at, or filing a report with the National Center for Missing 
& Exploited Chil-dren (NCMEC) at 1-800-843-5678 or
