It has been found that cybercrimes and threats to women online are rising by the day, so that they are the prime targets of some sensitive crimes like revenge pornography and sextortion. Reasons causing this are not only economical, but also social and cultural, that prevent women from using the internet and issues like trolling that pop up when one uses it too often. With the development of a more advanced and digital age , it is of paramount importance to break this gender divide and create awareness among internet users, to help curb the threats and problems associated with the internet and its usage, and also pave a path to reap the benefits of these great technological advancements.

Cyber bullies wreak havoc even in rural government schools

Dec 14, 2021 | Uncategorized

HYDERABAD: As cyber bullying is becoming the biggest form of harassment on all popular social platforms, Internet companies are increasingly paying attention to the issue. Many young people experience cyber bullying on a regular basis. Some face extreme forms of online abuse. Some have taken their own lives as a result.

IT companies have a responsibility to protect their users, especially children and young people, says UNICEF. It has also recently released guidelines on how to stop the menace, 10 questions on cyber bullying and preventive measures.

Captain Vineet Kumar of Cyber Peace Foundation, who has been associated with UNICEF on the cyber bullying and online child safety project, says the menace was once confined to institutions at elite places in city areas.

“But now children studying in government institutions, even in rural areas are also facing this. The most worrying aspect is that it has gone to the next level and taken the form of revenge porn,” he said.
According to UNICEF, face-to-face bullying and cyber bullying can often happen on a parallel basis. But cyber bullying leaves a digital footprint – a record that can prove useful and provide evidence to help stop the abuse. When bullying happens online, it can feel as if you’re being attacked everywhere, even inside your own home. It can seem like there’s no escape.

The effects can last a long time and affect a person mentally, physically and emotionally. In extreme cases, cyber bullying can even lead to people taking their own lives. Vineet Kumar also says that cyber bullying is faced by not just children but adults too. “The main reason why it is on the rise is the anonymity that users feel the Internet guarantees, which is actually a myth.”

UNICEF suggests that for bullying to stop, it needs to be identified and reporting it is the key. Further, social media platforms offer different tools to restrict who can comment on or view your posts and to report cases of bullying. Many of them involve simple steps to block, mute or report cyber bullying. “We encourage you to explore them. Also, the first line of defence against cyber bullying could be you,” says UNICEF.
