Lycos adult chat room
With the internet and apps evolving every week, it can be easy to feel like technology is moving too fast for us, however it doesn’t change the fact that young people will always seek to interact with technology and will always require support and advice when online.
The recent release on Whats App includes a new live location sharing feature, that allows users to share their location with friends they are chatting to.
The feature, which you can opt-in to from any chat, allows others to view your exact location for fifteen minutes, an hour, or eight hours at a time.
Although it is end to end encrypted, the concern will arise when a child who has been groomed shares their location with the person grooming them. One app, called Lycos Chat is advertised as a fun, free chat room. It offers multi-room, public, private and photo chatting.
Guidelines say that you have to be 16 to use the site.
Intelligence from local police suggest that within an hour of a 13 year old girl using the chat site, she had been approached by 19 supposed adult users requesting private chat and two of these made overtly sexualised comments.
The 13 year old’s profile strongly suggested that she was 13.
Many of your children will have a PS4 and the new app allows players to take their Play Station experience with them on their mobile device.
It also has an integrated chat feature which allows users to receive game alerts, notifications and to be constantly in touch with the Play Station universe.
Here’s a shocking incident for you: recently a 7, yes, 7 year old mentioned to his mum that he had been playing on his PS4 during which he’d added a friend from the Play Station network.
He was then using the app to chat with friends when the new friend began having sexually explicit conversations and asked him to come to their private chat room. This is happening folks and it is happening here in Devon.
PLEASE be aware of what your child is doing online.
