SafeToNet has screened more than 65m texts sent since November and found that girls aged 10, rather than teenage boys, as they had expected, use the most explicit and potentially harmful sexual language. The SafeToNet app looks for language indicating sexual talk, abuse, aggression and thoughts about suicide and self-harm. It applies a threat level to each and year-old girls were the most prominent in category 3 of sexual references, which relates to the most explicit and harmful language. In December, it emerged that more than 6, children under 14 have been investigated by police for sexting offences in the past three years, including more than of primary school age.

SafeToNet also found that while girls in general use more sexually explicit language than boys, boys are more abusive and aggressive, and children fear bullying the most on a Sunday evening. The analysis provides a window into the often hidden online lives of eight- to year-olds.
