APP Update 5: Whisper

11th February 2018

A social "confessional" app that allows users to post whatever's on their minds. Users type a confession, add a background image, and share it with the Whisper community.

What parents need to know:

-The confessions can be hard to stomach- inappropriate, offensive, sexual.

-There's plenty of inappropriate content. All too often, Whispers are sexual. Some use Whisper to solicit others for sex (using the app's geo-location "nearby" feature). Strong language and drug and alcohol references also are prevalent.

-Whispers can go public- privacy settings are easy to bypass.
