The latest survey conducted by the NSPCC children's charity highlights the dangers posed to children by livestreaming and video chat. The survey found that almost one quarter of children aged 7-16 have live-streamed and almost 1 in 8 have video-chatted with someone they have never met. More than 1 in 10 of those who have video-chatted and more than 1 in 20 of those who have live-streamed have been asked to take their clothes off.
