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.

Dangerous

So dangerous!!!! My daughter used this app and thought she was making friends with a girl. It was a man who coerced her into sending a picture of herself then tried to blackmail her. To the kids saying this app is safe and fun, think again. She thought she was making a new friend with a girl her age. She learned the hard way how wrong she was.

USER BEWARE!!!

Even though I have rated this as 18+ if I could I would rate it to no one and I shall tell you why.. This app is full of scammers and adult industry workers (politely put) I have had 2 people try to scam me in less than 24hrs when I call them out on it they run faster than a kitten being chased by a dog something needs doing about this issue cause there are alot of people especially the younger members who are open to scams and not aware of the implications it can cause them and their families financially or otherwise. avoid this app at all cost please stay safe and keep your family safe.
