Computers have forensic programs to protect youth. This includes the identification of threats through word and content analysis of potential threats. These methods involve accessing and modifying control filters, settings, browsers, and restriction options to track histories and block content and/or websites that may seem to be innocuous traditional business websites, or political websites. but are means of access to unsuspecting young girls.

Forensic computer security and offender profiling must adapt as offenders become more proficient at their trade.
