#parent | #kids | Police warn of ‘very dangerous’ app which ‘poses risk to children’ | #parenting | #parenting | #kids

West Midlands Police issued an urgent warning to parents over a “very dangerous” live streaming app it posed a “risk to children”.

West Midlands Police urged families to be aware of the YOME LIVE streaming app amid fears predators may be bribing children with gifts in exchange for private chats.

Parents were urged to not tell their children about the app in case they downloaded it out of curiosity.

In a message on West Midlands Police’s online alert system, WMNow, Nicola Tinker said: “YOME LIVE (pronounced YO-ME) is a very dangerous live streaming app which poses a risk to children and young people.

“Do not disclose this app to children as their curiosity could well send them to look at it. YOME is a publicly live stream video or voice chat which creates an easy to access video and chat environment frequented by adults in a highly sexualised behaviour.

“They target young people who often get sent gifts to persuade them to “FOLLOW” chat privately with adults. HELP KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE!”

BirminghamLive has asked YOME for a statement.

*To keep up-to-date with crime in your community, join the  Black Country Crime Watch Facebook group where you will be alerted to any suspicious or criminal behaviour happening in your area.

Online safety for children

Below is advice from the West Midlands Police website on online safety for children:

Has something happened online that has made you feel worried or unsafe?  Are you worried about the safety of your children when they are online?

The CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) website allows you to report concerns online and to discover how young people can stay safe online from issues such as online abuse or sexual exploitation.

You can also find further online safety advice from  Thinkuknow or the  NSPCC if you are worried about online safety, people acting inappropriately online, or if you fear you or your child is being sexually abused or groomed.

Park Hill #parent says #school #laptop was used for #inappropriate #relationship with #student

Source: National Cyber Security News

A metro school district is making big changes in cybersecurity. It comes after a parent says things got so bad for her daughter, she was forced to pull her child out of school and move her out of state.

41 Action News sat down with a concerned mother who wished to remain anonymous. Her daughter once attended the Park Hill School District.

She said the problems began shortly after her daughter was issued a laptop by the district. She said her daughter then set up a Facebook account with her school email address, on her school laptop.

“This Facebook account was used by her boyfriend to help groom her for an inappropriate, sexual relationship,” said the mother. “Over a 6-week period, there’s 650 printable pages of him talking to her and trying to teach her about bondage relationships.”

The mother said her daughter’s personality changed abruptly and feels the inappropriate relationship would’ve been caught sooner if district leaders put more safeguards on those laptops.

“She got physically violent with me one time. If they’re searching for guns, violence, porn, then someone should be alerted to this. Whether it’s inside the school or not.
