Livestreaming and video-chat risks highlighted

Results of a survey by the NSPCC has highlighted the risks faced by children and young people when using the internet, in particular the dangers of livestreaming and video-chatting.

The findings show that almost a quarter of children and young people have livestreamed with someone they’ve never met, and over one in 20 of them were asked to remove clothes. The NSPCC is calling on the government to introduce tougher regulation for social networks, including mandatory safety rules.
