Dangerous Site for Kids and Teens
We are usually pretty conscientious about what apps we allow my daughter to download to her phone (we use the parental approval controls through Apple) but this one slipped through in a chaotic moment. We were told by my 14 year old daughter that it was to talk to her friends online, but in reality it's a tween/teen dating app where kids peruse profiles of other "kids" (or potentially adults posing as kids) who live in their area and swipe left or right if they like what they see. Then they connect via SnapChat, and it doesn't take much imagination to guess that it has the potential to quickly get very inappropriate and very scary. Fortunately we were tipped off early by another parent that our daughter was using this app and we were able to intervene early, but honestly it did not take long at all for her to be oversharing with strangers online. VERY frightening stuff. DO NOT let your kids use this app, and based upon our experience, it's a good idea to delete SnapChat while you are at it.
