The Sony PlayStation (PS4) is one of the most popular game consoles in the world, together with XBOX. With millions of devices sold around the world, and with most of them being online for most of the time, they are not just a toy any more. They are a hub to retrieve material from the internet, play online with other people and be part of online communities.
Most parents do not realize that a PS4 is no different than a computer and that the same dangers lurk around their children.
It is estimated that the most favorite game consoles are the new hunting ground of sexual predators. It is easier to contact a child, learn about it and take advantage of it when playing a game rather in a chat room.
We have investigated PS4 devices for different cases, mainly once brought in by concerned parents.
Strathclyde Forensics can investigate your child's console to determine any improper activity and to determine what your child is doing online with their PS4.
We can also advise parents on how to protect their children when they are online.
