The internet is directly proportional to the influence it has on society. Although contacting others has become quite simple with the internet, it has its own disadvantages. Privacy invasion, internet abuse, cyberbullying, and many more negative effects are just a few of its downsides. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a succinct analysis of the notion of cyberbullying. Not every internet user in the digital world identifies what they encounter as cyberbullying since it seems to be becoming more commonplace.

This chapter attempts to understand cyberbullying in its many forms and causes in addition to examining people's, especially youths', idea on this deadly phenomenon that is rapidly growing.
