Coby Persin in partnership with mSpy parental app held a new social experiment.

The video blogger makes a fake profile, pretending to be a teen and starts communication with three tweens (Samantha 13-year-old, Daniel 12-year-old and Sasha 14-year-old). Interested to know what happens next? Watch the video below.

The main idea of this experiment is to check if kids are ready to meet a stranger from the Internet. The mSpy parental control app allowed parents to monitor the kids` Snapchat app and see all their correspondence. Coby Persin spent over a week communicating with peers, but the result of the experiment is far from perfect. It shows that parents need to communicate more with their kids and to know whom they are talking online.

This video managed to cover only one Internet danger kids may face online. Unfortunately, there are more than one. Parents keep eyes on your kids. They are very precious to become victims of online predators.
