(There's text chatting too, which you can turn off, but video chat is always on.) Putting such a short time limit on the chat could put pressure on users to reveal something personal, and reviews of the app report lots of flashing going on.Available for Android (rated T for Teen) and i OS (rated 17 ).
(Alternatively, if a teen entered a false birthday when signing up for Facebook, that fake age could be used to sign up for Tinder through Facebook.) Once you're on Tinder, there's just no way to know who you're really chatting with, and if a teen is on the app, that teen is probably looking for a date with an adult. It requires a user to sign in with either a phone number or a Facebook account.
The user's age, gender and location are shown, but there's really no way to know if that's a teen or an adult.
If you accept a chat with someone, the video chat starts.
In addition, check the photo settings on the phone to make sure it's not attaching a location to images shot by the phone's camera. Nicknamed "Tinder for teens," Yubo is a chat and livestreaming app where teens can make new friends based on their location.
(Yubo encourages users to let the app use location services, though it's not required.) Minors are supposed to be relegated to their own part of the app with no adults allowed in, but I had no problem signing up as a 14-year-old girl with a picture of President Trump as my profile pic.
Check the location settings on each app to see if your child's whereabouts are being broadcast, or just turn off location services altogether.
