Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (15):

The premise that being social contributes to happiness and wellbeing is at the core of this app, and despite some glitches, it definitely makes an effort to keep it adults-only. Though starting a video chat with a stranger is awkward for many, the app's safety measures, thorough guidelines, identity verification, and human moderators aim to ensure a positive and safe experience for the Yee - Group Video Chat community. Despite the layered safety features, there are some red flags. Although matches may be limited, people can still connect with others without fulfilling the entire identity verification process. Though the app clearly states it is intended for people eighteen and older, some users were clearly underage. Users have to self-report their age upon registration, but can easily enter a birth year that meets the requirements. There were kids whose profile age was well over eighteen, but whose profile picture was that of a minor. Another concern is that there are no age filters, and through random matches, an 18-year-old could be matched with someone well over their age.

Also, the gender and sexual orientation filters aren't always accurate. For example, even when the match preference was set to girls, boy matches were offered. The app incorporates a face scan prior to instant video calls as a way to encourage people to keep content appropriate, but once connected, the topic of conversation -- and what appears via video -- is up to user discretion. And in user reviews, many people report technical glitches as well. Ultimately, although Yee - Group Video Chat integrates several measures to create a safe platform for people to meet and socialize, the attempts to verify age and identity have loopholes, and meeting strangers online is always risky for kids and 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.
