Back to school apps that parents need to be aware of



As kids return to school it is likely their online social activity will increase. Since 1994, the non-profit organization Enough is Enough has been working to make the internet safer for children and their families.

MEETME: It’s a social media app. Encourages people to meet up.

SKOUT: Offers location-based dating.

WHISPER: As the name indicates, users are encouraged to share secrets about others and themselves.
