The internet is a dangerous place these days. Email is a great way children can keep in touch with friends or with family. However, email also comes with a number of risks.
Children talk to strangers online all the time. Unfortunately, there are predators that go online and looking for children. So, while children may think they are talking to another child, they could actually be talking to an adult predator. This is a very scary situation, but it happens all the time.
If your child is getting strange emails or chatting with someone online that you don't know, it might be worth checking them out. You can first talk to your child and find out where they began talking to this person.
You can also use this site to lookup an email address and while we caution that this site is built "for fun" and is not a substitute for a real background check, it can be helpful to double check the identity of the person your child is emailing. All you have to enter is the email address of the person you're trying to find information on here and if we can find their name or address we will provide that to you. It is that easy no subscription or registration, just search and find the information you are looking for.
