I’ve been talking about random “chat roulette” type of apps since I started my trainings in 2012. These types of apps have changed and morphed over the years, but the function is basically the same: you are randomly connected with a “stranger” also using the app anywhere in the world. What has changed is the age of the kids using these apps.
When I started doing my trainings around kids and technology in 2012, I was targeting the high school aged parents. Now I’m trying to get the elementary aged parents to my trainings. With younger children using these apps, they will be exposed to unwanted sexual content, requests to expose themselves and individuals exposing themselves and doing other concerning acts. Make sure your kiddos is not using the apps outlined in this article.
