McAfee, the world’s largest dedicated security technology company, today released findings from the company’s 2012 Teen Internet Behavior study. The study investigates the online habits, behaviors, interests, and lifestyles of the first generation to truly grow up online, and discloses how teens are not only engaging in risky behaviors, but how they are hiding it from their parents, many of whom don’t realize they are being fooled. The study also exposes ten ways teens are hiding their online activities from their parents.
36% have access sexual topics online, and 32% have accessed nude content or pornography online. — Parents don’t think teens look at porn online. Only 12% of parents think their teen’s access pornography online, when 32% of teens have accessed porn intentionally online and 43% of them access it on a weekly basis, if not more frequently. Additionally, 36% of teens have accessed sexual topics online, such as STD’s and issues on pregnancy, with more females than males doing so.)
