Ninety-five percent of American teenagers have access to the Internet, and 45% are online almost constantly (Anderson & Jiang, 2018). With the rise of technology, cyber crimes against teenagers are increasing, and keeping them safe online is becoming increasingly difficult. Cybercrimes against teenagers can be in different forms, such as cyberbullying, identity theft, hacking, phishing, exploitation, and online scams (Bozzola et al., 2022). This paper provides an overview of the current trends and statistics of cybercrimes against teenagers and recommends the best approaches to keep teenagers safe online from criminals.
