jugendschutz.net Annual Report 2021Virulent dangers for children and young people on the net
Violence, extremism, pornography: When young users use popular Internet services, they are quickly exposed to harmful content. Interaction opportunities online also bring with them the risk of becoming victims of bullying or sexual harassment. There are more and more depictions of sexualized violence against minors online. In popular games, so-called dark patterns become a trap for children. However, many operators of popular offers do not take sufficient precautionary measures to protect minors well. This is the conclusion reached by jugendschutz.net in its annual report 2021.
