Disgusting content.

Only on the app 5 mins looking for essay research on artist sketchbooks before stumbling across barely veiled predatory content. Nobody asked for it, it was just brazenly posted for all to see. Concerned that this was so out of the gate I had to find if others encountered this on the app /creepyasterisks on reddit confirmed my worst fears. No good for kids, or adults for that matter, you have to be sick to want to hang around in that cesspit of an app. AVOID AT ALL COST. If kids are questioning their lgbt status and need peer support find another app that allows them to talk about these things safely.

Innocence Taken

This app is what every parent fears when it comes to your children being on the internet. Its full of pedophiles just waiting to take every and any positive thing within your child away. So that they feel they need to be on this app. I refuse to let these sick !*@#×&!&** take anything else from my daughter. Please don't let you children have anything to do with amino.

VERY BAD

I don't have a child but I understand I heard of this app and decided to check it out but when I did there were too many messages about people being disgusting so all parents or kids I recommend you to keep your child away from this app and kids stay away unless you want to be broken

Mods in communities mostly take their "friends" side even if you're the innocent one!

I had this app before. The communities are horrible with mods abusing power. Don't bother trying to report to the support, they won't do anything. There were also a lot of bots and or spam accounts that always return.

Parents Just sign a petition to coppa

Parents all we need to do is get evidence that we get enough evidence of the sexual activity on the app go to court with it a bunch of parents signing of law petition to ban this app it will be gone it’s going to get banned I heard but we need to ban it sooner. Just go to coppa with the evidence This is literally an app for children so and minors children online protections agency protects children. We just need to get it approved to ban it Parents please take this idea to consideration and do it please A lot of people who got banned from the communities without reason I want it gone. Project Z is even worse and needs to get banned. It’s another app just Same thing A lot of the Youtubers he got paid to advertise should get in trouble. For setting a bad example for children here’s my story why I hate amino super addicting. Violation of mental health To privacy concerns drama Hacking trolling Harassed on other platforms Stocked on YouTube Threatened on YouTube Death threats insults threatening to get hacked. Being accused of embarrassing things that’s has no proof. Banned hated Being accused of pedophilia which I’m not a pedophile not a pedophile. pedophilia parents please educate your kids on what a pedophile is, because a lot of people are calling people pedophiles just for talking to a minor. And please give them a consequence . This is gone too far the pedophilia accusing and your kids should know better I’m not a pedophile. !! But kids need to be educated on this. Because they don’t know there’s different categories. And they’re targeting Youtubers to where they leave communities in fandom‘s because of this app saying I’ve been groomed please punish your kid that’s your fault your expose to this trash because they’re coming on a site that’s for 13 and up there’s going to be adults there’s even a 55-year-old man but I know I want to meatball he’s not a pedophile he doesn’t harass minors but that’s a good example of what I mean. Please ban this app or change it to 18+ I don’t think it’s gonna do any better because it’s gonna turn into a Pornography site so just sign a petition to ban it forever please contact children’s online protection agency gather a group make signs get rid of amino a 21-year-old who is fed up with all of this shit Parents make sure your kids have not installed project Z it’s worse Delete it

Amino is NOT safe for kids

My 13 year old daughter was part of an art community on Amino. To my horror she was groomed by an older male teen. Her mental health spiralled and its been a difficult road to recovery. Her story isn't a one off. Don't let your child be the next victim, please.

Don’t be naive. This is a sex and violence role play app.

I’m sad to read how many parents are saying this isn’t a bad app. Then either you aren’t seeing what they are getting sent or you are much more open minded than me. Even if your child isn’t getting involved with writing sex or death or mentally taxing role play “words” then they are reading it at nauseating levels. Yes you can block someone but it’s too late. So I would say if you are interested in them learning about sex and violence in a completely unedited way with people lying about there age and intentions then this is for you. There’s no good reason to let this app be in your child’s life hoping for the good parts. The bad are 1000 times more available and again, you see the bad stuff before you block so it’s already in the mind. There’s a million other ones out there. This will keep them busy for sure as it’s provocative and intense but I don’t want to see mine getting hunted and then have to figure it all out.

Full of pricks and a***holes on Amino

Worst app ever with the worst communities. People on Amino literally get offended over almost anything and will try to cancel you for things that weren't even that bad to begin with especially on certain topics and opinions. I've made a decent harmless post on a horror baseed amino on how trigger warnings are stupid and that things were meant to be really scary and gorey but guess what? I've gotten tons of backlash on how "insensitive" and "offensive" I was over squeamish people that needed trigger warnings to the point where the mods hid my post all thanks to the pesky sh*tty users that cried to the mods like absolute pussies. Apparently I violated the guidelines and did a personal attack on some people according to the mods which is BS and my post WASN'T even violating the guidelines at all, there was no pornography, no racial slurs, no homophobia either involved in my rant! Hell I even had someone said that my post was as worst as discriminating a disabled person which is very ignorant and stupid seen as trigger warnings are a completely different topic and their nowhere near offensive as discriminating a disabled person. Not only that but I've had a good friend of mine on there that I used to talk to everyday and rp with a lot but sadly he lost his account and got banned for no reason at all. Amino is just garbage and full of degenerates who think their better then anyone else when in fact they have 0 talent themselves other then just taking a dump on newer users. It's mostly the OG users that are scumy as hell there are some are nice ones but most of them are just utter scumbags and don't make Amino a healthy place to express yourself without getting bandwagon of complaints from whiny butthurt sjws or getting hidden by one of the mods.
