But there are a few people out there, girls and boys, men and women, who use webcam to try to hurt young people.
They will try to convince you that it’s ok to talk to them about sex. If you do something you wouldn’t want your parents or friends to see, it could be recorded.
It used to be that people would meet in a chat room and then talk dirty to each other.
This was known as “cybering,” which meant having live sex.
As internet technology got more advanced, new devices were being introduced to the market that would further enhance the online communication experience.
Unfortunately this type of abuse can happen to anyone.
This has happened to hundreds of young people in the UK.
