This report, based on the final dataset of the EU Kids Online survey of 9-16 year olds and their parents for all 25 countries, presents the final full findings for EU Kids Online Deliverable D4: Core findings to the European Commission Safer Internet Programme.

The most common risky activity reported by children online is communicating with new people not met face-to-face.

The second most common risk is exposure to potentially harmful user-generated content. 21% of 11-16 year olds have been exposed to one or more types of potentially harmful usergenerated content: hate (12%), pro-anorexia (10%), self-harm (7%), drug-taking (7%) or suicide (5%).
