Adult chat room with pic swap
You’re asked for your Snapchat Username and then four add’l questions: I didn't actually want to make friends nearby...
so I tried clicking "Don’t Allow." Turns out that's not really an option—it's just a fake button.
And that means both parents and kids might be easily fooled into thinking this app is okay.
And I'm here to tell you, at least for kids under 17, it's not.
Perhaps I’m naive, but I really do want to believe there is good in everything—and that most people will do the right thing most of the time. So when it comes to new technology, my instincts usually point me toward the positive ways it can be used.
well, then you’re now "friends" on Yellow and the app offers up your Snapchat Username to your new friend and vice versa.
• Has no functionality aside from the "finding new friends" option, and therefore has no discernible upside for teens under 17. So if your teen downloads Yellow they will be able to flirt via Snapchat with other people who may or not be the age they say they are and who mostly live within a 60-mile radius of your house.
I don't need an app that helps my teenagers do that. UPDATE: Several articles have been published suggesting that sexual predators have been using Yellow to find victims.
Here’s how it works: you download the app from the App Store (there’s also an android version on Google Play).
Yellow asks for your phone number, then you're texted an access code to enter.
