Download our new mobile app on iOS and Android.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Created for entertainment and not recommended for learning.
Ease of Play
No tutorials, designed to be more or less intuitive. Create challenges by deciding if you or the opponent will do challenge, type the prompt, determine the reward amount, and publish.
Violence & Scariness
When taking or creating a challenge a disclaimer appears that asks users to confirm that they, "mean no evil and harm to anything and anyone." However, challenges are up to interpretation and users may come across mild expressions of teasing or people getting hurt.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some of the challenges posted are highly provocative and sexual in nature. Challenges range from licking your phone or sucking your thumb passionately to sharing a "hot and passionate kiss with my sister."

Products & Purchases
Creating and taking challenges often requires "Gold," the app's currency, which kids can get via in-app purchase, completing challenges, or winning votes. They can also determine the amount winners get for completing their challenges. The experience resembles betting. Ads promoting the app's currency appear throughout.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Kids may come across challenges that promote smoking, alcohol use, or drugs. One of the challenges that appeared on the feed encouraged taking a shot of rum.

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Though there's some potential for older teens' silliness and self-expression, this app leaves too much room for poor judgment and real consequences. Dare App: Try Your Nerve is designed to engage and connect people from around the world in different types of challenges. Some of the posted challenges are silly, test physical endurance, or encourage people to share their talents. Other challenges are iffier, and the creator's intentions are questionable. Kissing siblings passionately, dancing provocatively, posting passwords, taking shots of rum, and showing sexy piercings were all published posts. Other than users reporting challenges for inappropriate content, there's limited monitoring to ensure safety. Since challenges are shared via video and stored on the feed, families should take caution and closely monitor kids' activity. People also earn money for completing tasks, which may encourage kids to partake in some outrageous acts. The experience resembles betting; acts or dares in exchange for money. There's a potential to make a few bucks participating in challenges and winning votes. However, creating challenges and participating in them also requires the app's currency so there's a constant exchange. So while there is some harmless fun in the app, the overall experience has too many red flags.
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.
