Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Pretty good for kids who can’t have tiktok

It’s pretty safe and my 12 year old LOVES it! She always wanted tiktok but I didn’t think it was safe, so we tried dubsmash. It still has cursing but she doesn’t use those songs or does those dances. I think if you don’t want your kid to have tiktok, dubsmash is really great. Remember to talk to your kid to make sure they don’t curse(if you don’t want them to) or do anything inappropriate. Also, always make sure to monitor there phones.
