Police in Salem, Va., received a report on July 7 from the parents of the 12-year-old girl, who said their daughter had been blackmailed into sending nude photos and videos of herself through an app called
Also, Apple gives you the ability to turn off Face Time.
So kids can make nude video calls with Face Time and there is no record of it. And with the i Touch being a handheld device those nude video calls could happen just about anywhere. The continued rise of sexting among teens says otherwise.
Kids using Face Time for nude video calls will happen. Be aware of the potential danger of an i Touch with Face Time (I think we have that covered).
