DISADVANTAGES OF THE INTERNET


Although the Internet is one of man's greatest creations, it also has many disadvantages.

Anyone who has spent time on the Internet has encountered trolls or abusive people. With the

highly-social nature of the modern Internet, the instances of cyberbullying are sadly not

uncommon.

With people sharing information on the Internet, it's also easier for stalkers to find

personal information about someone or use online services to help them find information about

someone.

Hidden places on the Internet and the deep web can also be a place for criminals to

conduct business without as much fear of being caught. A global audience also gives criminals

more ways to solicit their goods.

With the speed and ease of communicating on the Internet, it also makes it much easier

for those who prey on others to find people to exploit. It also makes it much easier for someone

to pretend they are someone else, the opposite sex, or younger than they are to find others to

exploit.

The Internet is also full of sites that contain adult material that can be easily accessed by

minors or accidentally viewed by those who don't want to see that type of material.

The Internet and games played on the Internet can become very addictive and are often

designed to be addictive. With how addictive games can be and how much entertainment is on

the Internet, it is easy to spend a lot of time on the Internet without doing anything productive. It

is also very easy to be doing something productive and then be distracted by something else that

ends up consuming all of your time.

With access to billions of computers, it makes it easier for computer hackers and

malicious users to hack accounts and steal personal information that could be used for identity

theft. The Internet also connects all computers to each other, which makes it easier for hackers to

scan millions of computers and quickly identify what computers are vulnerable to attack.

The Internet also makes it much easier for students to cheat on their studies or find others

on the Internet to write reports for them or do their homework.

Social networking sites can also lead to depression with many people when all you see is

the best of all your friend's lives you may start to wonder why your life is not as good as theirs.

The Internet and online games make it easier to communicate with others, and although

you may find new connections around the world, it's easy to disconnect from those in your real

life.

As with watching too much TV, spending too much time on the computer surfing the

Internet or playing games can also lead to obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle.

From above we can conclude that although every one use the internet in his everyday life

for communication, entertainment or information but there are many dangers when browsing the

internet, we must be aware from those dangers and have the knowledge to overcome this merits

to decrease the effects that result from those dangers to be safe on internet.
