‘Apps’ are designed to run on certain devices and are written for a specific operating system, such as Apple iOS, Windows, or Android. The official store for the Apple iOS operating system is known as the ‘App Store’ and it’s where you can browse and download more than 2 million apps and games to use on the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and other Apple devices. When your children are using the app store, you need to be aware of the risks…

 

TikTok is one of the most downloaded apps in the world. The video-sharing platform can provide hours of entertainment and encourages users to make their own short ‘pop-style’ video which they can edit and share with the world. However, despite the seemingly harmless nature of the app, it is rated 12+ on the app store and users don’t always post age appropriate content. 

 

We have attached a guide so that children are aware of how to keep themselves and their personal information secure and ensure that they use social media in the healthiest way possible.
