This educational app assists in understanding the steps predators use online to trap and lure people into participating in things they wouldn’t normally get involved in.
Predators are sophisticated manipulators and utilise whatever means at their disposal to gain the trust of vulnerable children and young people and lure them into various harms. When a predator is targeting someone their success relies on gaining the trust of their target, without getting caught. To do this they look for any vulnerability in the young person, they will then focus on this vulnerability to manipulate the person to get what they want.
