Limited availability to make reports
This app has a very limited availability to make anonymous reports. You have to enter in your school’s name or town to see if it shows up in the list so that you can make anonymous reports.
Also, this app requires creating at least a four digit access pin for security or privacy. The problem is with this approach is, if a parent wants to see what reports their child has made they would need that pin in order access the history of reports that were made.
This is a great way for our youth to report safety issues. Isn’t saying something better than saying nothing? Our children deserve the best life we can give them and they also deserve a fighting chance to get through their younger years with all the help that can be offered. As a parent we made a promise to help them in any way possible, that includes letting others help and be there for our kids when we can’t. Our kids don’t tell us everything so it’s nice to have another way for them to ask for help or have a voice when they are in need. This app is doing something to help our kids and that’s what they need.
Overly concerned parent
This is probably a great app in some ways but there are issues my child was already dealing with and I was getting her help for when someone decided to “anonymously” report her as depressed and suicidal therefore sending the police to my residence and pretty much embarrassing her and upsetting her even more. I’m not sure how you can say that helped in any way. Not only to mention that I had to explain our whole PERSONAL business to the officer. My concern is why wasn’t the PARENT contacted first? Was this a kid or parent who was concerned or someone merely sticking there nose in someone else’s business? I felt like a criminal for trying to help my child and not letting the authorities know first. If kids are already going through something upsetting I’m sure totally humiliating them by sending police to the residence is really going to help matters. So, thank you anonymous tipster for NOT helping.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
