Everyday millions of people use computers, smart phones, and other information technology devices in their homes, schools, and workplaces. Easy access to the Internet has made technology an integral part of modern life. For teens who have grown up with the World Wide Web, text messages, streaming video, and many other online tools and services, the internet is essential to how they live, learn, and socialize. Living with the Internet examines the history of the Internet, how it has shaped modern society, and what the future of the internet might mean in terms of privacy, information access, and lifestyle.

Today the Internet and the World Wide Web are essential parts of everyone's education, work, and social life, but despite all the benefits they bring, they come with many dangers. Teens, who are often the leading users of cutting-edge technology, are especially vulnerable to these risks. Yet, many are often unaware of the predators and perils awaiting them online. The Cybersafety series is intended to help readers better understand the nature of the online world, analyze information found there, and become informed about online pitfalls and dangerous behaviors. Staying safe in a fast-paced, technology-driven world is more difficult than ever, but the Cybersafety series gives readers the information they need to protect themselves.
