Do you Know what your Kids are Doing

by

Are you a Parent of Teens?  Do you know What Yellow is ?
A Colour
A Weather warning
or a App linked to Sexting Incidents

The App Yellow can only be described as ‘Tinder for Teens’, the Yellow app allows users to make new friends using their Snapchat and Instagram accounts. Users enter their Snapchat username, and then are asked to provide gender and date of birth.
Yellow uses location technology to find and match other users nearby, however there are obvious risks for young people sharing their location online.
Reports have suggested and some stated the app has been linked to a number of teen sexting incidents.  Sexting is the sending, receiving, or forwarding sexually explicit messages, photographs or videos, between mobile devices,
As I have said in the past It is very easy to access apps using an incorrect date of birth. But with this one you only need to be 12.
I would be very concerned with Kids using this App and would go as far as saying it could expose young people to Sexual predators.
