Predator In My Phone

#Exclusive

We started an experiment a few months ago. We asked a few of our reporters to pose as underage girls on mobile chat apps, to see how many sex predators would proposition them.

The results absolutely shocked us. Every time we activated the “friend finder” feature on these apps, we were almost guaranteed to receive obscene sexual advances.

PREDATOR IN MY PHONE documents the undercover operations our journalists performed to find out more about these sex predators – and to help the police nail them.
