EU initiative klicksafe and advice platform JUUUPORT.de launch joint campaignPROTECT YOURSELF! Against sexualized violence on the net - making children and young people strong against cybergrooming
Social media, messenger, games - when children and young people use the Internet, they quickly come into contact with people they don't really know. This is where cybergrooming, i.e. the targeting of minors on the Internet to initiate sexual contact, is becoming increasingly common. Many of these cybergrooming cases go undetected and unreported. Especially in the pandemic, the numbers have increased significantly: the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) records an increase of 17.6% in 2020 compared to the previous year. In the coming weeks, klicksafe and JUUUPORT.de will provide comprehensive information and educational materials as part of the #WehrDICH #GegenCybergrooming campaign.
