Parents’ guide to apps
Back to article list

8th May 2019

A new app has been brought to our attention called “Like – Magic Music Video EditorĀ ” which may put your child at risk on the internet. It allows children to “star” in their own music videos which are, by default, posted publicly on line (similar to Music.ly / TikTok). Please be mindful if you see this app installed on your child’s phone.

Here are some useful links if you are worried about what your child might be installing / downloading:
