New app detects cyberbullying
A new app has been developed called Keepers Child Safety that aims to keep children safe from cyberbullying. The app tracks ‘suspicious and abusive’ content messages across children’s smartphones and a number of social media platforms including - Facebook, WhatsApp, SnapChat and Instagram. The app works through an algorithm that detects ‘emotion from texts’ and alerts parents in real-time if their child is ‘under threat’. The message is then forwarded to parents. Keepers is concealed from the child while identifying malicious text messages.
