We are aware that some nasty challenges (Momo challenge) are hacking into children's programmes. The challenges appear midway through Kids YouTube, Fortnight and Peppa pig to avoid detection by adults.
A spokesperson for the NSPCC said: "The constantly evolving digital world means a steady influx of new apps and games and can be hard for parents to keep track of.
"That's why it's important for parents to talk regularly with children about these apps and games and the potential risks they can be exposed to.
"The NSPCC publishes advice and guidance for parents on discussing online safety with their children, as well as Net Aware - the UK's only parental guide to social media and gaming apps."
Among the most common signs to watch out for include children who:
* Become very secretive, especially about what they are
* Are spending a lot of time on the internet and social
* Are switching screens on their device when approached
* Are withdrawn or angry after using the internet or sending
* Have lots of new phone numbers or email addresses on
If parents are concerned or have any questions on how to approach the subject with their children, they can contact the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000 or visit the NSPCC website.
Children who are worried about their activity on apps or online games can contact Childline 24 hours a day, online and over the phone on 0800 1111.
