Spreading rumors and hearsay with the purpose of damaging the victim's reputation.
Impersonating someone by creating a fake profile or website in order to torment a person or damage his/her reputation.
Text messaging to torment the victim.

Unlike face-to-face bullying, cyberbullying makes the victim feel like there is no safe place.

Victims are at greater risk for:
Cyberbullies can be subject to:

A parent's role in protecting children against cyberbullying:
Students usually hesitate to tell parents because they fear they will make things worse.
Contact school so faculty can keep an eye out.
Parents' actions should escalate as the threat and hurt to the child does.
Kik, Poof
- A free texting service in which the message history is not logged in the phone.
Whisper, Secret
- teens can post secrets anonymously and chat with users in their geographic area.
- Users send pictures to other users that supposedly are only available for a specific period of time, but this limitation can be circumvented.
- A completely anonymous messaging services designed to allow users to chat with strangers in their geographic area.
ChatRoulette, Omegle
- Similar to YikYak, but these apps allow users to video chat with strangers.
Tinder, Down, Skout, Pure, Blender
- Users post pictures and scroll through other users' images. They can "flag" the image of users they find attractive. Primarily used for hooking up.
Hide App
- Does just what it says. Hides other apps you have installed on your phone. Other apps do this as well.
Phone apps to watch out for:
Featured App: Omegle
Advertised Purpose: Chat with strangers. Free!
My own experimenting with Omegle:
Featured App: Whisper
Purpose: Anonymously post your secrets to people in your geographic area.
Navigating Whisper
By clicking the menu in the upper right and selecting "Me" you can see all the user's whispers.
Featured App: Snapchat
Purpose: Send photos that will disappear after a programmed time allotment.
Circumventing Snapchat
Screenshot the image so you can keep it.

WAIT! There's more...
Featured App: Skout
The Deep Web
Only an onion browser can access the deep web.
While surfing the Deep web, beware of the following:
Silk Road - the black market of the Deep Web.
What is the best way to see which apps are installed on a device?
If a phone is rooted, a user can hide certain apps that have been installed.
Google Play Store: Checking what has been installed
Notice the two separate accounts.
Itunes App Store: Checking which apps have been installed:
Other tools provided by mobile carriers:
Verizon Family Base

Sprint Control

AT&T Smart Limits

T Mobile Allowance
Each of these services allows parents total control over the device including:
Hours of day the data plan is turned on (texting) and which numbers can be reached with it.
Hours of the day device can make/receive calls and to which numbers.
