Adult Seeking Numbers & End of Life

Parents are pushing this product for kids to communicate at home. I've read many reviews online of parents complaining their kids receiving adults call fishing for kids. Regardless. Google announced this product is now in the end of life in January 2019. In September 2019 it will be no more.

Google Hangouts

My daughter is on this website because someone she does not know told her about it.

Not Age Appropriate Conversation

Lots of Creepy men looking to entertain young teen age children. Negative conversation like suicide & pill popping. My son has social anxiety so this online environment helps him communicate but the chats go so left field with inappropriate conversations.

Predators paradise

My ten yr old was getting strange texts from a "spoofing" phone number. Parents need to know what that is. I tried to have a discussion with this person and ask why they were texting my child. They were very defensive and refused to speak to me. Even said my child wasn't their concern! Scary. My son is blocked from using this app. You can control what your child sees and does online. Lookup apps such as Ourpact.
