Now we are in the 21st century and it has become more great, this includes various chatting applications, websites etc... However, people don't understand the dangerous side of this. People think they could speak with others even though they do not know them. This is very dangerous and through this the person on the other side of the conversation can hack into your personal details and hurt you physically, personally, and emotionally. D.F.

1.1.1. We can prevent this by speaking to only those we know and to choose carefully to the websites and people we speak to.

D.F
