Two-thirds of young ‘suffer online harms’
TWO-THIRDS of internet users aged 13 to 24 have experienced potential harm online, a study says.
Ofcom found they faced behaviour such as trolling, bullying and threats.
But fewer than one in six young people report them.
Women are significantly more likely than men to say a potential harm has offended them.
Andy Burrows, of the NSPCC, said the Online Safety Bill provides a vital opportunity to give youths more protection.
But he added: “As it stands, some high-risk sites will be able to side-step duties to prevent children from seeing dangerous material.”
