Clickjacking

Unfortunately, social networking sites are a very popular place for people trying to trip you or your child up. Your child will probably not be as cautious as you are, so you need to point out the dangers.

One of these is clickjacking, where fraudsters attempting to get your unsuspecting child to click on something tempting, which results in downloading malware or tricking them into sharing private information. 

Examples of clickjacking are a funny video with a clever caption such as “OMG! You won’t believe what this girl did!”, or a fake app that can show your children who has looked at their page.
