SOUTHERN OCEAN COUNTY, NJ -  As much as technology represents a source of information, it also poses a potential threat. Kudos to the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office for putting together this helpful list for parents and grandparents alike.

On first glance, any or all of these applications may appear innocent enough. Unfortunately, "stranger danger" continues to be problematic.  With technology access, the world manages to take a grip in unexpected places. In some cases, apps even let predators know where to find children and increases the opportunity for unwanted contacts.

Adults should review privacy settings and set child controls whenever possible. It's also critical to monitor usage on a random basis.
