Online Safety – 07/02/24 – Kick

Kick a live-streaming platform where creators can live-stream various content including gambling and gaming. The platform is free to use but creators can gain revenue through different methods. Kick is similar to Twitch in that it carries many risks for children and in fact carries many more risks than Twitch. The platform contains very little in the way of protection for children and children could be quickly exposed to a number of risks the moment they join the platform. It is therefore important to have conversations with your child about what live-streaming really is and what the risks could be so that they understand why it is best to avoid.
