Several new eSafety risks have been reported by schools and parents in the last few weeks.

  • Talking Angela App – There have been reports of the cat character in the App making inappropriate comments to children, I would recommend not using it just to be safe.
  • Instagram – this is a photo sharing website which allows comments to be posted. Many teachers are reporting problems with children posting offensive comments about each other.
  • Kik Chat – an online chat room, many adults use it and some children are using it to talk to friends thinking it is a safe space.
  • Fake accounts posing as famous people appealing to children – some children have reported being friends with One Direction members or Stampy Longnose (the Minecraft video maker very popular with children at the moment). Please remind the children when discussing e-Safety that they are very unlikely to meet the real person online.
