The internet can be a dangerous place, especially for children. Together with our partner PhoneKick, we’ve complied a list of just some of the most dangerous apps for children to use on their mobile phones.
What are you waiting for? Summon your kids and check they don’t have these apps installed…
According to McAfee, there’s a few reasons why this app is so popular with children:
- Because users are allowed to create anonymous accounts
- The app does not require users to verify age in any way
- Parents who monitor texting, email, and networks like Instagram and Twitter usually skip looking for Kik altogether
- Kik has a built-in web browser, games, and video access, which makes it a self-contained social network that is a fun place to hang out for teens
The messaging app also has a groups section, allowing anyone to join. However, some groups can be a breeding ground for paedophiles – with indecent images being shared and swapped.
