Hello, welcome to the Digital Parenting Rundown, where every single week we give you the top 3 stories in online parenting space.
1st up this week: YOLO APP
There is a new app that has been the most downloaded app in the US and UK. It is the Yolo App, and you might not know about it unless you are teenager.
The app basically allows users to anonymously ask you questions. It is a standalone app but is connected to your Snapchat story.
People really enjoy asking friends anonymous questions and it is now a big sensation . You can read about it in our blog post and see how you can keep your kids safe from apps like this
Next up is Whatsapp as it is recently being hacked. Some spyware have been downloaded into some peoples phone
Basically, your information and messages could have been stolen from Whatsapp if you are a victim of this.
Facebook, the owners of WhatsApp said its an easy fix all you have to do is update the app and yes “just another data breach”
Now don’t panic they said not everyone has been hacked but just update the app to be safe
Instagram is testing out a new Anti-bullying feature which basically tells people to just think. Pause and reflect before you post.
Now lets wait and see if that actually works.
