Advice from the Westchester County District Attorney:

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. is urging parents to be extra vigilant about their children’s online and mobile activity on social apps. With added time online during the school closure, children, especially those in their tweens and teens, may be at increased risk of cyber bullying, sexual exploitation, scams and other forms of digital abuse. 

Parents are advised to:

  • Set limits on online usage
  • Create mobile curfews: Turn off phones at night and store them with your phone
  • Set parental controls where possible
  • Know your child’s passwords
  • Remind young children especially: Don’t “talk” to strangers. Explain that people online can make up identities and may take advantage of them
  • Block and report users who make them feel uncomfortable.

If you have a complaint about a person or business, you can visit Westchester County’s online complaint site here.
