The Internet's easy, anonymous contact has allowed murderers and pedophiles unprecedented access to connect with their victims and lure them away from the safety of their homes. These cyberpredators use information technology—including social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat—to attack and victimize others in a more violent, malevolent, and dangerous way than cyberbullies or cyberstalkers.

Cyberpredators, Second Edition educates teens about the dangers of interacting with strangers online and how they can protect themselves in the digital world, complete with up-to-date information on how cyberpredators operate, law enforcement efforts to counter cyberpredation, and new accounts of cases that escalated from cyberspace to the real world. This newly updated and expanded edition also discusses mobile computing and the risks it entails, such as location sharing and privacy threats.

Chapters and topics include:

  • Characteristics of a cyberpredator
  • How cyberpredators use technology
  • Cyberpredators and social media
  • Cyberpredators and the law
  • Advice for young people.
