APP SAFETY WARNING - MUSICAL.LY

10th May 2017

Please read the guidance below about
the app musical.ly
 
We are concerned about children using an app called musical.ly.  We have been made aware of children in our school using the app despite it having a rating of 16+.  Content within the app is inappropriate for children under 16.  It also allows users to post videos of themselves for others to view and comment on.  These comments are not moderated and can therefore be inappropriate and offensive.  We recommend that adults familiarise themselves with the app and restrict access for children under the age of 16.
