A parent has alerted us to an app which has caused a scare in her home – thankfully she is a vigilant parent with her child but do look out for IMVU. I attach a support sheet for parents.
A good website that we have shared before for parental guides is National Online Safety – well worth a look. Do please check your child’s internet and app use regularly as I have discovered a number of parents who are unfamiliar with their children’s accounts or apps. Not trying to put any fear into homes – just as you would check on who they are playing with, etc check what they are viewing and interacting with online.
