An online groomer or predator is a person who builds a relationship with a young person online, with the intention of exploiting or abusing them. Groomers often use tricks and manipulative tactics to gain a young person's trust and establish a relationship with them.
Inappropriate behaviours refer to actions or communications that violate someone's online boundaries or make them feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
Red flags refer to warning signs or indicators that something may be wrong or potentially unsafe. In the context of online safety, red flags can be behaviours, communications, or situations that make someone feel uncomfortable, scared, or threatened.
