WHAT IS IT?
Allows users to chat and also post photo and video messages anonymously
WHAT WE SAY:
Anonymous chat is never recommended for children
Especially one where you can chat to people nearby anonymously
Anonymous chat has the danger of teaching children that they can say whatever they want without consequence online
Some of the worst cases ever online of cyberbullying have happened on anonymous based apps.
SAFETY TIPS TO CONSIDER:
Dangers around suggestive, sexual material in the form of pictures and words - ask children to tell you if anything goes wrong
If you’ve enabled location services, your whispers can show up in lists of nearby whispers
Anonymity fuels risky behaviour - remind children of the dangers of talking anonymously to people
