Because of a feature in Kik’s make-up that allows it to preserve a user’s anonymity, the app has become popular with young people who want to send and receive messages anonymously. But the app has been criticized for having a poor safety record after a number of child exploitation incidents that apparently happened on the app. It has been reported that pedophiles used this app to groom young children and that users have in the past received sexually explicit content through the app.
So, if you know that your child is on Kik, how do you keep them safe? It is quite impossible to just forbid your child to use the app, since they can very well use hide it from you. That only leaves one other course of action. You can monitor what they do while on Kik and who they talk to. This article shows you how to do that.
