I've heard stories of children being afraid to tell their parents about what they're dealing with because they don't want to get in trouble.
// One final warning- at the time of this writing, Amino Apps has recently introduced voice and video chat features.
// While Amino is intended to be accessible for young users, it is still an online social community.
It is also intended to be used by adults, and on any such community, there is the potential for unscrupulous users to join with the intention to harass or take advantage of the youngest users.
I caught my son (10yrs old) talking about inappropriate sexual activity with strangers. This is just another way for sexual predators to get to our children.
Since finding these convos I have deleted the app off of my sons phone and he now has limited access to his phone.
This app is horrible, my child started enjoying stories and added their own stories to begin with but it didn't take long for the private chats to start!Not all communities on the app have them available, but this introduces a new avenue of danger.If you trust your child to listen, I simply advise that you ask them not to use these features without you nearby.Make sure they can recognize when someone they are speaking with is acting inappropriately.Make extra sure that they know how to use the apps reporting and blocking features to disengage with users who are behaving badly.
