Here Are APPs That Every Parent Should Know About
With more and more kids getting access to smartphones, police are letting parents know about certain APPs that could have a negative influence on their children.
Some of the APPs include:
LIVE.ME is a live-streaming video app that uses geolocation to share videos so users can find out a broadcaster’s exact location. Users can earn "coins" as a way to "pay" minors for photos.
SNAPCHAT is one of the most popular apps. While this app promises users can take a photo/video and it will disappear, recent features including "stories" allows users to view the content for up to 24 hours. Snapchat also allows users to see your location.
CALCULATOR% is only one of SEVERAL secret apps used to hide photos, videos, files and browser history. This app looks like a calculator but functions as a secret photo vault. Here is how it works, it is actually a functioning calculator. You will be able to type in numbers and do normal calculations on it, however, once you type in a passcode and then press another key such as the percent button, the app will then unlock and reveals a vault of secret photos or video files. There are other apps just like this that have an icon that looks normal, but it is a Hidden Icon or some other app or etc.
KIK allows anyone to contact and direct message to your child. Kids can bypass traditional text messaging features. KIK gives users unlimited access to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
