Don’t download. Fake reviews.

All these reviews you see, is written by yubos fake accounts, the app is terrible. They will take your money, and then ban your account when you done nothing wrong. The app is filled with pedos and fake accounts, who will try to get you in their trap. Their support system is broken. You can write to them many times, and they won’t respond to you. They make fake reviews on websites like these, to get a better reputation, because they know everyone hates them.

Do NOT DOWNLOAD. They literally are a waste of time. Kids are committing suicide over this app and everything. They ban you for literally everything. I showed my belly button and was banned for 4 hours. I was already verified, went to make another account it banned me for 24 hours and made me RE VERIFY WHAT THE HELL. this app is the biggest joke. They get you for every little thing, they do nothing to help the bullying except ban people for showing their shoulders. This app is horrific.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (16 ):
Kids say (12 ):

Having made safety information more "in your face," the developer has made some efforts when it comes to user safety, but they still fall short when it comes to teens. It helps having frequent reminders of what's appropriate and what's not, and there's live moderation if a livestreamer tries to strip down to underwear -- or more. Still, users' profiles often contain obscene text and profanity and often don't show a real person at all. Livestreaming sessions show teens smoking marijuana, using racial slurs, and talking about graphic sex. And while teens -- or seemingly younger kids -- are livestreaming, anonymous viewers can comment on and even record the streamers. During review teens were sometimes streaming during school, which introduces another layer of trouble. On top of this, parents could object to the app's superficial "make friends based on looks" mechanic, and should definitely be concerned that its age filters don't work. And though it gives you the option of downloading a third-party app to verify your online identity, parents should be aware that it still emphasizes the superficial evaluation of other people and facilitates real-life meetings among strangers. Privacy settings can hide your location and prevent your profile from joining the pernicious, swipe-activated Wheel of Judgment, but for kids, the app's still a no-go.

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.
