What Is Cyberbullying? Cyberbullying is when someone uses technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person. It happens on devices like smartphones, computers, tablets, and gaming systems. Cyberbullying hurts people, and in some cases is against the law. Sometimes cyberbullying can be easy to spot — for example, if your child shows you a text, comment, or post that is harsh, mean, or cruel. Other acts are less obvious, like posting someone's personal information, or using photos or videos that hurt or embarrass another person. What Are the Effects of Cyberbullying? Kids have almost constant access to their devices, so cyberbullying is hard to escape.

Cyberbullies also can be suspended or expelled from school or kicked off of sports teams. What Are the Signs of Cyberbullying? Signs of cyberbullying vary, but may include:
