Chatting online is a brand new experience that has become available thanks to the internet. This experience is very exciting, but at the same time mass media present terrible stories of young people being lured off the web from social networks and the like by sex traffickers and pedophiles. Unfortunately, these are not just the stories, but the real happenings. Meanwhile, on-line social and dating websites are growing and developing at a rapid rate and the risks of teens and adult people becoming the victims to the on-line predators also increase. Many free social networks and dating websites offer a costless virtual space where people from all over the world can meet. Free websites rarely screen their users; they actually never do that. It is easy to become a member of these sites; all you need is a nickname, a password and a picture. Wigan is not an exception and its residents can also become blind victims of on-line scammers, fraud, sexual abuse and the like. A very popular means of on-line communication today is a webcam chat. Webcam chat in Wigan allows you creating special bond with the partner faster, easier and with more fun, but at the same time, it also makes a way of the web ‘stalkers’ closer to you. So, how to make your chat and on-line communication safe and stay away from the dangerous users on-line? For this you need to remember certain general rules: Never believe everything you see on the web. You need to realize that it is extremely easy to lie about yourself, your occupation, hobbies, interests, likes, etc. One can easily post any picture of any person to their profile on the internet sites. Dangerous ‘elements’ on the internet do this without any remorse. The web predators will work in to earn your trust and will look as your dream partner. However, you never know who really hides by the picture or nice looking appearance in chat. Try anonymous chat service. Before meeting a person face to face it is important to speak to the person. Anonymous chat means you don’t turn your webcam on until the person on another end does so. Switch of the chat immediately when you notice any signals of alarm. Never post your personal information on the web. Never provide your phone number whether home or mobile, nor your address. To be on a safe side always tell your parents and close people where you are heading if you agreed to meet in real life. Always meet in a public place! Good luck and listen to your gut feeling!
