Did you know:

-Some apps with Age Ratings 4+ have chat functionality with strangers, inappropriate advertising and in-app purchases

-Age Ratings of 4+ have been set for some hidden photo and video vaults apps (which look like calculators), fake text messaging, and fake GPS location apps

-A lot of diet apps have Age Ratings of 4+, including fasting diet apps

-Some dating and ‘meet up’ apps have Age Ratings of 12+

-Apple’s App Store and Google Play have different age ratings for the same apps

-Age Ratings are determined by the app developer, and because of the sheer volume of apps uploaded on to the App Store and Google Play, they are not all reviewed for suitability.

Do some simple research before allowing your child ‘suitable’ apps, and as always, talk to your children about the dangers of being online and how you can help them if they get into trouble. Predators are relentless, and will try every trick in the book to get to your child. Don’t give them the opportunity.
