There's a Fortnite warning parents need to hear: predators are targeting your kids through the popular video game.

A new investigation led to the arrest of 24 men (including one police officer) who were targeting teens and young children through games like Fortnite and even Minecraft.

While it is possible to play these video games without allowing access to outside interactions, many kids love the interactive nature of the games, making themselves susceptible to attacks. 

As with any online game, it's always important to monitor your kids and teens, both for what they are playing and for how long, as well as who they are playing with.
