On the occasion of SID2016 Child Focus, who is the national coordinator in Belgium, has decided to launch an online awareness raising campaign targeted at teenagers on the new phenomenon called "sextortion", an upcoming issue where teens are meeting a new 'hot" contact online and are quickly asked to get undressed in front of their webcam if they want to see more of their new friend... Unfortunately, once the video has been made and send out, the teen is asked to pay a big amount of money or the video will be shared among its friends and family. Unfortunately the blackmailing does not stop if the payment is done. To raise awareness among teens about their online privacy, we are distributing webcamcover during SID. With this little tool, they can turn off and on their webcam when they want to ! They can be in control.We ordered 3000 webcam covers with our helpline number 116 000 on it. Teens are invited to order one through their schools or association. We want them to be in control of their online privacy.
