Violent online groups target minors

Social Media Safety

Parents, please be aware: The FBI has warned of online groups targeting young individuals, especially between the ages of 8 and 17, by threatening and manipulating them to do harmful things to themselves or produce inappropriate content. These groups operate on common online platforms and prey on vulnerable youth, using their fears to control them. To protect your children, monitor their online activities, be cautious about what is shared online, and be attentive to any sudden behavioral changes in your child.
