With hacking and cyber bullying running rampant on the Web, Angelina Jolie is not taking any chances. The actress tells PEOPLE that she and husband Brad Pitt have hired a professional who monitors their children’s activity on the Internet.


“We have someone who monitors that,” says Jolie. “It’s so beyond what we understand. We wouldn’t even know what to look for,” explains the actress who describes her and Brad’s knowledge of technology as being a bit outdated.

This year marks a record year for hacking as several large corporations have been violated by online pirates these past twelve months. Sony Pictures was the latest business to fall prey to cyber criminals earlier this month, as thousands of employee social security numbers and emails were hacked and shared with the world. Yahoo! and Target have also been the victims of keyloggers, and have taken extra precautionary measures to protect the identity of its customers.

All of the illegal activity taking place online is why Angelina tells PEOPLE that she is happy to have grown up in a time where technology was not so advanced. “I got in enough trouble,” says the star. “It just would have been very documented.”

Brad and Angelina are the proud parents of six kids. Find out what else the celeb mom had to say about her family in the most recent issue of PEOPLE magazine on newsstands now.
