Grooming is a serious problem

In this era we are blessed with n number of blessings, if we start counting the same, we need ages to count it, but on the other hand, there are always the chances of misfortunes and misshapen occurring.  As today, our online lives offer the potential for greater connection than any generation has ever experienced. But with all the benefits of those connections, there also comes a scary reality: Too many people, especially young women, face abuse online on a regular basis.

GROOMING
Grooming is befriending and establishing an emotional connection with a child, and sometimes with the family, to lower the child's inhibitions for child sexual abuse. It also regularly lures minors into child-trafficking situations, illicit businesses such as child prostitution, or the production of child pornography. Grooming in the real world can take place in all kinds of places
The act of luring another with gifts, favors, promises, praise, or with the intent of gaining sexual favors. The perpetrator of "grooming" must have a significant advantage of emotional intelligence, financial independence, intelligence quotient or simply perpetrating against a minor. 

What Do Predators Do?
Predators who take part in child grooming often use the same tactics to reach their victims. Some of the common behaviors of the predator can include:
Manipulating the child’s thinking by becoming someone they think they can trust

  • Exploiting natural sexual curiosity
  • Driving a wedge between the victim and their family and friends
  •  Complementing the child often
  • Making promises of a better life
  • Asserting control over the child
  • Affirming their feelings and lending a sympathetic ear
  • Reassuring against insecurities

These behaviors are designed to build that level of trust required to allow for sexual assaults to happen. However, these predators won’t hesitate to revert to threatening behavior if they feel the child won’t comply or is second guessing the relationship.
This process can take a lot of time, but it can be incredibly dangerous for the victim if the behavior isn’t identified and it continues through to trusting someone enough to agree to meet in person. This is how children can be kidnapped, raped or killed by someone they met online


Signs of Online Grooming

In most cases, Internet grooming can be identified before it becomes a serious problem. Online grooming facts show that many children who are interacting with someone who is using these techniques to groom their victims will show other signs in their daily lives. Knowing what these signs are will help you take notice before it is too late for your own child. Be sure to watch for:
  •  Being extremely secretive about online activities
  • Wanting to spend too much time online
  •  Having older significant others
  • Going to unusual places to “meet friends”
  • Receiving new clothes, electronics or other gifts from an unknown source
  • Taking part in drugs or alcohol
Many of these behaviors are explained by spending time with someone who is grooming the child and may be working hard to build that trust before the assault occurs. If you notice any of these signs, you need to talk to your child immediately to prevent further problems and to provide the protection your child needs

WhatsApp is illegal, will soon banned in India : Government

WhatsApp could have accidentally entered into troubled waters here in India by enabling its end-to-end encryption for all. The new security feature by WhatsApp is not what is required by the Indian telecom rules and WhatsApp could face a ban, if the rules are not adhered to. But not yet.
In India, companies need to follow the country’s rules and adhere to specific types of encryption, which WhatsApp does not currently use. WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption on its chat service means that WhatsApp or anyone else won’t be able to crack open its contents.  Only the sender and the recipient are able to read the encrypted data. WhatsApp uses a 256-bit key for encryption of all chat messages, which is only known to the sender and the recipient.
Why is it not possible for WhatsApp to help decrypt users’ messages? "No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us," WhatsApp founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton wrote on their blog. How…

3 Mega Acquisitions in last week affects the Internet Space of India

Qihoo 360 buys Opera in $1.2 Billion Opera Software intends to accept a $1.2 billion acquisition offer from a group of Chinese companies. The Chinese consortium includes Internet security company Qihoo 360, Internet firm Beijing Kunlun (which invested roughly$93 millioninto Grindr earlier in the year) and investment group Golden Brick and Yonglian. According to Opera, the $1.2 billion is a 56 percent premium over Opera's share price during the last 30 trading days. Despiteclaiming350 million users, the company's browser has struggled in the oversaturated Western market. China could be a profitable arena for Opera, in part because Google's Chrome browserdoes not come preinstalled on Android phones in China like it does elsewhere. In addition, doing business in China without local partners is nigh impossible, but Opera could leverage the networks of Kunlun and Qihoo 360 if the deal goes through.
