Did you know?

Research released by the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce (iCAC) revealed shocking statistics on internet use by children. The most alarming statistics show how exposed and vulnerable children are online. 2016 research illustrates the threat has grown:

42.1% of kids admit they have seen online porn

1 in 12 have exchanged messages with sexual content to other people

1 in 25 have sent graphic photos of themselves

25% of children get away with pretending to be older to get an account online

29% of parents let their kids use the internet without any restrictions or supervision

Any child exploited through commercial sex who is 17 years of age or younger is a child sex trafficking victim.

Child sex trafficking is a high priority at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children®, because these children are often currently missing and actively exploited.

Child sex trafficking victims include girls, boys and LGBTQ youth.
