Skype – Is there a way to trace possible child predators?

Concerned Mom asked 3 years ago

I am a parent of a teen. After he snuck an old phone from his dad’s house that I didn’t know he had until the next day, we found transcripts of Skype conversations with a stranger that I’m 99.9% sure was an adult posing as a teen, wanting him to video himself. It doesn’t look like it ever became live video (sorry I don’t use Skype so I don’t know what all it entails or the correct terminology).

The best way to trace an online predator is to impersonate a child and interact with the predator to find out more about the person\’s whereabouts. One can also register a complaint with the cyber-crime department of the local police to trace preditors. To trace the online ID of predators interacting with your children, it\’s best to use an app such as Bosco Child that alert parents about the online activity of children.
