Jan 17th, 2016

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

some of the challenges include the anonymity of the predators since they are able to hack into other peoples internet accounnts and commit their crimes without getting noticed, this happens within minutes or even seconds and as soon as they are done, they withdraw not leaving behind any evidence that can get used in  tracking them.also, there are million of users who get exposed to these predators and this makes it even more harder to identify those involved in the crime.another challenge is that these predators are internet geniuses and they know how to manouver their ways through the inetrnet with the necessary high levels of precautions that are mostly untraceable thus making it hard for surveillance security personnel to track them down and stop them.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Introduction

Internet predators are persons who indulge in the Internet-related sex crimes and might arise from adults communicating with minors over the Internet on issues related to sex. These predators are hard to find in the sense that, they are usually a menace in the society and no matter how hard the internet security has tried to eradicate them, success has not yet encroached (Henderson, 2005).

Some of the challenges include the anonymity of the predators since they can hack into other people’s internet accounts and commit their crimes without getting noticed, this happens within minutes or even seconds, and as soon as they get done, they withdraw not leaving behind any evidence that can get used in tracking them. Also, millions of users get exposed to these predators, and this makes it even harder to identify those involved in the crime.

Another challenge is that these predators are internet geniuses, and they know how to maneuver their ways through the internet with the necessary high levels of precautions that are mostly untraceable thus making it hard for surveillance security personnel to track them down and stop them.

Also, another challenge that faces the efforts to deal with online predators is that most minors nowadays tend to indulge in internet activities that are mostly explicit, and this predisposes them to these predators, thus making it hard to stop the spread of the actions of these online predators.

Conclusion

The range of internet predators is worldwide since the inception of the internet and its effects of making the world a global village, and this makes them hard to get and to convict.
