When I was 15 I added this app to make friends. I was enjoying the app then not. Someone told me if I didn't prove that I was myself that I couldnt have the app anymore. BTW they said they were the owners of the app. I said sure what do I have to do because I am not a catfish. They told me to send pictures of my face and etc. So, I did then they asked me for nudes, so I deleted to app. Then I started getting messages all over my social media, facebook ,messenger ,instagram, snapchat, skype, email,etc. They blew me up no matter how many times I've blocked them. The guy named Daniel Carter that says he works for MyLol, me and him talked so they would leave me alone. Me and him ended up getting close and then we started liking each other. HE WAS 22 AND I WAS 15. We sent told me to send pictures of myself. I was stupid at that time and did and when I refused to send him anymore nudes, he found all of my socials and threatened to post my photos EVERYWHERE and tried texting my FAMILY. He messed with me for 3 years and I kept blocking him and he kept making face accounts. BE CAREFUL YALL.

Our review:
Parents say (12):
Kids say (23):

This risky social platform isn't a safe place for teens. Though the app is M-rated and says users must be over 17, users younger than that can create profiles and post their underage status. Global chat is peppered with suggestive talk and discussion of drugs, drinking, and even abuse. Users often post photos of themselves in various states of undress, and though users can prevent views of their profiles according to age and gender, there's little else to stop adult online predators from using the app to browse for potential targets. As if that weren't enough motivation to steer clear, MyLOL is awful from a technical standpoint: Its few features take far too long to load, and in-app purchases offer users the questionable option of being privileged" -- meaning having the power to identify users who view and/or wink at them. In the end this is not a safe -- or well-made -- platform for teens.

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.
