Online Safety – 15/11/22– Amigo

Amigo is an online platform that links people from around the world based on shared interests. It focuses heavily on one-to-one chat, video calls and live streams and even has built in translation software to remove language barriers. This app should not be used by children and there are many risks associated. First of all, the platform actively encourages users to connect with complete strangers. Also, Amigo is made for those 18 and above, however it has nothing in the way of age verification meaning children could easily sign up with a false age. As well as this, while the app is free, there are a number of in app purchases available.
