Next, the Security Secretariat announced a Decalogue of Recommendations that you can find in the Full Mexico 3D game pages, but which basically ask parents, mothers and children to be more careful with their actions online, avoiding chatting with strangers and sharing personal data . In addition, a list of video games were shared that apparently can be used by criminals in their goal of capturing young people after a case, mentioned at the beginning of the news, where a minor filed friendship with a criminal playing Free Fire .

Thus, these statements remind us of those carried out by United States politicians, including those of the Donald Trump Expresident, where videogames were blamed on shootings in colleges and institutes.
