Beware of online pitfalls, Mumbai cops” advisory tells people

Mumbai, Feb 28 (PTI) The cyber wing of Mumbai police
on Sunday issued a social media advisory asking people not to
share personal information with strangers online and to ensure
the internet activities of their children is monitored.

Accounts being operated by minors must be checked by
their parents or guardians to ensure nothing is amiss in their
conduct that could make them prey to online predators, an
official said.

It has come to the notice during various police probes
that such predators manage to obtain objectionable photographs
from minors after befriending them online and then proceed to
extort money through blackmail, he added.

“Do not accept friend requests from strangers, do not
share personal photographs online, and try to keep social
media accounts as private as possible,” the official said by
way of advice. PTI ZA
