EL PASO, TX — If you suspect your teen is up to something sneaky on the internet, you're probably right.
A new study by online security software maker McAfee found that 70% of teens hide their online behavior from their parents. 42% of the teens surveyed checked out violent content online and just under a third surfed for porn.
Perhaps more surprisingly is that about one in ten teens hacked into social networks or email accounts and about the same number had a face to face meeting with someone they met online.
