Online Grooming

Online Grooming is when someone befriends and builds an emotional relationship with a child and communicates with them through the internet with the intent to commit a sexual offense. This type of victimization can occur across any platform, from social media and messaging apps to online gaming and live streaming. Often it involves young people being tricked, forced, or pressured into doing something they wouldn’t normally do (coercion). Usually, the groomer’s goal is to meet the victim in a controlled setting to sexually or physically harm them. In some cases, children may be abducted or have long-lasting psychological damage.

In this guide, you'll find tips on several potential risks, such as strangers online, closed messaging, and emotional attachments.
