15 apps parents should look out for on their kids' phones

 
  • The first is 'MeetMe,' an app where teens can easily be in contact with users much older than them, with an emphasis on dating.
  • 'WhatsApp' and 'SnapChat' are for messaging, but what you should know is teens can send unlimited messages, have video chats and even share their live location with other users, people they may not even know. 
  • 'Skout' is a flirting app that's used to meet and chat with new people. Teens and adults are in different groups, but ages aren’t verified. 
  • 'TikTok' is used for sharing user created videos that can contain bad words, even adult content.
  • 'Badoo' and 'Bumble' are dating apps for adults, but teens can still find ways to join. 
  • 'Grindr' is geared towards the LGBTQ community. It allows users to share photos and meet up based on phone’s GPS location.  
  • 'Kik' is specifically for kids, but anyone can join and anyone can contact or direct message your child. 
  • 'LiveMe' is a live streaming app, but you don’t know who’s watching and your kids location is revealed.
  • 'Holla' is all about connecting strangers around the world through video chat. Enough said. 
  • 'Whisper' is a social confessional where kids can remain anonymous, but still share their feelings. And it can reveal your child’s location for a meet up. 
  • 'ASKfm' encourages people to allow anonymous users to ask them questions, which opens the door for online bullying.
  • 'Hot or Not' rates users on attractiveness.. There’s no age verification and users can send each other messages. 
  • And lastly, 'Calculator%' apps are several secret apps that allows kids to hide their photos, videos, even browser history.

Plan for College:

As part of a new Parent University Series on College & Career Readiness, Nebo School District offers free monthly webinars on the college planning process for parents and their high school students.  Statistics show that less than 9% of all students who enter a 4 year college both graduate in 4 years and do so without debt.  We believe timely information from industry professionals could dramatically move that needle. 

College Success Formula is broadcasting nationally, so please register and if you can’t watch the live broadcast, you will have access to the recording for 30 days after each webinar.  Click on the following link to register for one or many.  www.CollegePlanningWebinars.com
