June 26, 2012 (CHICAGO)

A new study finds 70 percent of kids hide what they are checking out on the web from their parents.

Software maker McAfee surveyed young people about their search habits. Approximately 42 percent admitted to looking at violent content and just under a third of those surveyed surfed for pornography.

About 1 in 10 said they hacked into social networks or e-mail accounts.
