Children More Vulnerable To Crimes Online: Manoj Abraham

Manoj Abraham, Nodal Officer, Kerala Police Cyberdome said that though internet is a useful tool, it can be dangerous if not used properly. In terms of issues that youngsters are facing online - there is cyber bullying, there are cyber predators who can sexually exploit children, and then there is a threat of harmful malware being downloaded by youngsters accidentally that give hackers the control of the device.


Digital environment that the pandemic created has further taken over practically every aspect of our lives. All our needs are being met online. Young adults, especially those in schools, are consuming and interacting with data like never before. But we are not just getting from the online world, we are also giving out something vital - information. About us. Without even knowing it.

Cybercrime, which includes everything from theft and embezzlement to data hacking and identity theft, was up 600% as a result of the pandemic. But the vast majority of the teens and young adults are not aware of the perils of the online world.

Issues of data security and privacy are not widely known. The frequent use of digital tools to lure young people into dangerous and compromising situations is not known. The infinite possibilities and types of cybercrime are not known.
