Online Safety - a warning for parents. Merseyside Police have contacted schools with a very important warning about the mobile app.


It is the fastest growing social media streaming app available and has approximately 20 million users worldwide. It enables users to live stream videos of themselves, and watch videos from other users.

It has limited security features, making it possible for users to potentially identify where a video is being streamed from or has been recorded. Any video can be recorded or shared without the permission or knowledge of the person who made it.


Many legitimate apps are being used by young people in a way that allows them to communicate with or be contacted by strangers, which creates a very real and significant risk to them.

My colleagues at Merseyside Police are keen for parents to make sure they know the apps their children are using, how those apps work and how they are being used.  A useful source for further advice is Net Aware.  We have included a link to this below.  Alternatively, if you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at school.
