Survey: More Teens Hiding Online Activity

More teenagers are hiding their online activity from their parents, according to a survey of teen internet behavior conducted by online security firm McAfee. The survey found that more than 70 percent of teens have figured out how to avoid parental monitoring, up from 45 percent in a study two years ago.

“Since teens have grown up in an online world, they may be more online savvy than their parents, but you can’t give up,” McAfee blogger Robert Siciliano tells parents. “You must challenge yourselves to become familiar with the complexities of the teen online universe and stay educated on the various devices your teens are using to go online.”
