Sex chat with strangers using mobile
You can adjust App Rating restrictions (at least for i Pod, i Pad and i Phone users) to prevent the download of adult-oriented apps like Kik. Once set up your child will not be able to download apps over the allowed app rating.In this example my daughter cannot download any app rated 17 .
When I first wrote this up in 2012, I was curious about Kik so I went to the App store to download it.It didn’t take me long to see what the problem is with Kik. It’s clear that some people blatantly use Kik to send and receive nude pictures. (Kik also includes an integrated web browser with easy access to inappropriate content for children).Given that there are many other free texting apps available, including i Message which is already included for i Pod touch, I don’t see a need for Kik on a child’s mobile device.7/24 via omegle random chat offers the opportunity to these. There are hundreds, there are hundreds of handsome men and beautiful girls.New people here to chat with, talk or reluctant to talk about her subjects to speak freely with the opposite sex one on one fun, enjoyable environment where they can have time prepared.Perhaps Kik would be fine for an older teen, but there IS a reason this app is rated 17 , so just be aware of this before okay-ing for a younger teen. It’s true that Kik doesn’t rely on phone numbers or e-mail addresses.
But – People can guess your username and send you messages. However, I have received Kik messages from strangers many times.
But it is safe as long as you don’t talk to strangers.” ———————————————————————— 5-20-2013: I’ve had to close comments on this article.
Unfortunately some of the comments I’m receiving lately – which have NOT been approved and published – contain insults and profanity, or people sharing their Kik usernames. I think the comments to date provide a fair assessment and plenty of opinions on either side of the “Is Kik okay for kids” question.
I read the description and noticed there were over 40,000 reviews for the app. In the app store now (2015) there aren’t as many recent reviews like the ones I saw back in 2012.
That’s a lot and I was curious to see what people had to say. Take a look – these comments were all left on just one day and there are thousands more like them. Newer reviews I saw were mostly related to recent updates, but I still observed some iffy comments such as While I’m sure that many people use Kik to simply send messages to friends, the fact that it is very popular for sexting leads me to believe it is not a good choice for kids.
I’m guessing this is a prevalent problem as it is also addressed in Kik’s help pages: https://kikinteractive.zendesk.com/entries/23496671-How-are-random-people-messaging-me- Some Kik users use Instagram (or other social media accounts) to publicize their Kik username in their profiles or by tagging their photos.
