Most commonly, victims reported that abusive partners were using mobile apps, texting and other social networks to repeatedly contact them to see where they were and whom they were with.

Clicking on a message takes the recipient to a payment page, which has membership packages from 200 to 500 yuan.

Charges are payable for sending and reading messages, as well as online chatting and virtual gifting.

Those teens also were more likely to experience non-partner sexual assault and used contraceptives less often.
