24th February – Warning about the YUBO (Yellow) app

A problematic app that has recently had some media attention, YUBO (formerly known as Yellow) is being touted as a dating app for under 18s and is referred to as “Tinder for Teens”. Some of the most worrying features of the app are that it heavily promotes live streaming as the primary chat method and allows chat groups to be set up with no filter on content or topics along with features very akin to apps like Tinder, such as swiping left/right on profiles for people in your area. The Times and The Sun  have written about it. Pictured is the app logo.
