Firstly, Merseyside Police have contacted me with a very important warning about the mobile app, which should be added to your school website and newsletter to parents.

It is the fastest growing social media streaming app available and has approximately 20 million users worldwide. It enables users to live stream videos of themselves, and watch videos from other users.

It has limited security features, making it possible for users to potentially identify where a video is being streamed from or has been recorded. Any video can be recorded or shared without the permission or knowledge of the person who made it.

Many legitimate apps are being used by young people in a way that allows them to communicate with or be contacted by strangers, which creates a very real and significant risk to them.

My colleagues at Merseyside Police are keen for parents to make sure they know the apps their children are using, how those apps work and how they are being used.

Whether it is staff at the Local Authority, at our schools, parents, guardians and carers, we all have a responsibility to know the warning signs of exploitation so we can prevent a child or young person from putting themselves at risk or forming inappropriate relationships.
