In the article it is stated that the formation of life competence of the youth is tightly connected with the influence of the Internet and is provided with the development of the educational and upbringing programs which allow judging on the structure and the contents of the forming life competence. The structure and the contents of a human can be determined on the basis of the threats to his vital activity. In this regard, we must consider the relatively new types of threats to human life: the Internet threats and threats of spirituality. Their danger is growing rapidly, up to the threats to the national security, and requires the adequate social responses. They are especially dangerous for teens due to their increased vulnerability with not yet fully formed psyche. These two types of threats partially overlap and fit together. A source of new and rapidly growing threats to children and adolescents is a massive spread of the Internet. The content of these threats includes: - spreading through social networks and forums of personal data and information on children’s behaviour; - children’s viewing pornography online; - viewing of material containing scenes of violence, cruelty to people and animals, promoting criminal and extremist activities; - cyber-bullying. Spiritual threats to the current generation of teenagers have a tendency to rapid increase. This is determined by several factors: the increasing fierce attacks of the forces seeking to dominate the world; the development of technologies of mass manipulation of consciousness (the Internet, social networks, video, mobile, flash mob); the continuous development of technology of the catch-all personality (CCTV, chips, electronic passports, electronic money, electronic badges, electronic health records, etc.).
