PIX11 - Feb 26 - Yubo is marketed as an app for kids ages 13 - 17 to make new friends, but with the swipe feature, the app has become known as the Tinder for teens. Originally created early last year as Yellow, the app boasts ~15M users worldwide. According to the child safety website PureSight, one in five teenagers say they have received an unwanted sexual solicitation via the web, and 75% of teens are willing to share personal information online. In almost all underage sexual predator cases, the teens have gone willingly to meet with them. What's also new to the app is a live-streaming option where teens chat about anything and everything to complete strangers. Since rebranding in December, the company has increased its security features to include technology to detect fake profile pictures; a child online safety consultant; a required mobile number to register, which is recorded and verified; and a reporting abuse feature to inform the company of inappropriate activity.
