Ratings and Reviews
This has the potential to be a really useful app. However, it already seems out of date. Yellow is one of the most popular apps for teenagers at the moment. It has been identified by the NSPCC as a potential threat to young people and yet doesn't feature on this app. We desperately need an app that keeps us up to date with potential online threats to our children. Please would you update this and add a news feed section to newly identified risks?
