Parents beware! This app isn't what I thought it was... Scary wake up call - read before installing on your kids phone/tablet/computer

This app was disguised as a kid-friendly digital play world, where kids are playing dress up with avatars, and socializing about general kid stuff.

I always do due diligence, and read the parent reviews before installing apps on my kids phone. I should have looked a lot closer at Line Play before installing it! At first glance this app looked tame, moderated, and not at all dangerous. This one slipped by me, and was my wake up call as a parent. I thank GOD I caught this one when i did.

I saw my 10 y/o daughter acting strange one day with her phone. When i pried it out of her hands, i found several chat logs that were incredibly inappropriate, and disturbing. The app is essentially intro to match/facebook for kids. There's plenty of "kids" bullying/blackmailing for pics. There's un-moderated filthy language everywhere. Sexual harassment on all levels. "kids" trying to express themselves in little digital sim worlds.

"Kids" have "diary" posts which are public facing to all "friends" in the app. This is essentially the Facebook wall. They can post pictures of themselves, or public statements about anything and everything, seeking attention in the form of "likes" and "comments".

After digging into this app a bit more, I found my daughter was living in an imaginary world, telling small and big lies about herself and her family. She was trying to meet and have conversations with strangers who she "thought" were her age, and were her "friends", and are "boys".

My daughter posted pictures of herself :( Not at all inappropriate, but she still broke one of the primary rules we have with internet safety.

As her father, the simple solution is she's going to unplug until further notice. all apps with any "social" aspect are gone.

The phone is for making phone calls, not a doorway for predators.

Child predators

My daughter is only 9years old and has a tablet to play on for an hour a day. I found my daughter playing this app and people are messaging her about porn and sex and asking her to post pictures of her body!!
This app should require a parental consent!!!

Great app for 10 and up Line app not line play

Line is a great communication app and social network app there is no posting or anything it’s just direct message that’s it! So maybe 9 year old’s should not have it but 10 and up! Is fine

Looks like a game for children, but should be for adults only.

This game has gambling in the form of "gachas" on it and they do anything that they can to lure you into spending real money on the game. 99% of the player base is in their mid 20's, and the only real way to get anywhere in the game is to be an adult with a job and money. With most of the player base being adults, most conversations in public meetup rooms are adult conversations, no one under the age of 18 should be playing this.
