A message from the Attorney General

Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul

As a parent, I know that the most important job we have — and often the hardest — is keeping our kids safe. Today’s unprecedented access to technology, especially through mobile devices, can leave our children vulnerable to sexual predators. This website can help you navigate the confusing world of online interactions and protect our youth from harm. Here you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about helping young people use the internet safely. The links and information on this site can also assist you in reporting a missing child or criminal acts such as child pornography or sexual solicitation of a child.

While exploring the Internet, children may be exposed to inappropriate material and conduct through the World Wide Web, e-mail, and chat rooms. Chat rooms pose a particularly serious threat. In chat rooms, remote users can carry on conversations anonymously, concealing their true identities. Taking advantage of this anonymity, child predators often make their first contact with victims through chat rooms and instant messages. The best defense against inappropriate material is to discuss family rules for Internet use. The following online agreement may be helpful in crafting such rules for your family:
