In addition to all the potential privacy issues that come with live video, this streamer has a very limited community and is full of bugs. Part of that has to do with the lack of users: During the review period, only one video was posted, even after following every possible account. It's also a very buggy and difficult-to-use interface. It's not entirely clear when you're recording, when you're broadcasting, how to stop recording, how to delete videos once they're live, and how to log out. Also, the app's lack of privacy policy, mandatory account integration, and constant demands to access friends and contacts are all pretty troubling. There's no word on what kind of information is being collected, where it's being stored, and how it's being used. Even in the main screen of the interface, the background is a live feed of whatever your camera is pointed toward, so as long as the app is running, so is the camera, which seems a little creepy. If a teen is going to stream video, this is not the platform to use.

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.
