The Internet is not only a source of information but a medium that connects almost every aspect of our life. The Internet is a place of great ease and infinite connectivity, but also a place of great vulnerability. In a world of the internet, we live through infinitely complex virtual networks, barely able to trace where our information is coming from and going and thus posing a threat not only to our lives but also to the lives of our children. The digital world plays an immense role in the day-to-day activities of 21st-century children. The U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports teens between the ages of 8 and 28 to spend about 44.5 hours a week in front of a digital screen, according to another report 23 per cent of kids have reported that they feel that they are addicted to video games. As the younger generation is growing more and more tech-savvy and dependent on the internet, they are being exposed to the various malicious side of the internet.
