What is Funimate: Video Editor Effects & Music Video Maker?

Funimate is a combination of a social network and music video editor. With the Funimate app users can create their music videos, adding cool effects with just the tap of a finger, and share on the network to build a “fan” following.

 

While Funimate does not feature an age limitation for use, it requires users to be 13 years of age or older to create an account for the app. Free to download for iOS and Android devices, Funimate features additional in-app purchase and advertisements

 

Since teens conduct so much of their lives on a smartphone, Funimate presents an excellent opportunity for kids to experiment with video editing and producing, without investing in the cost of expensive software.

 

Once users download and open the Funimate app, they’ll be prompted to either log into their account or create an account. To create an account, Funimate users can use existing social media accounts to log in or an email account. They will then choose a screen name, input their email address and create a password. With an account created, users are ready to go.

 

Funimate allows users to surf the app by searching via hashtag, top Funimaters, Funstarz, and Rising Stars. The social aspect of the app comes in the form of viewing creations by other Funimate app users and having the option to follow them on the platform.

 

Those users who wish to use the Funimate app just for personal videos can set their accounts to private. Lastly, users can select whether they will let others share their videos or if only they may share their videos.

 

The Settings menu in Funimate is robust and features support for the app, an area to report issues, tutorial videos, merchandise for purchase, options to upgrade to the pro version, as well as a space to connect social media accounts.

 

Funimate’s Settings menu also includes options for general account maintenance such as resetting the account password, allowing push notifications, account deactivation, as well as the terms of use and privacy policy.

Is Funimate: Video Editor Effects & Music Video Maker safe for my kids?

Parents will appreciate privacy options, such as selecting who is allowed to comment on user Funimates (if at all) and who is allowed to collaborate with a user (if at all).  With all the privacy settings available, the Funimate app can be safe for older kids

Iffy content is a possibility on the Funimate app, as well as videos featuring explicit lyrics, and bullying happening in comment threads.

Because account creation is incredibly easy, it’s possible to create sock or anonymous accounts to bully others on the platform, so parents should be sure to check in regularly with their children.

Funimate provides the ability to follow others on the platform so users are continually coming into contact with strangers. Parents should periodically check their child’s friend list to monitor activity.

In all, Funimate is a fun app for kids to play around with video editing and to get creative, but parents should monitor their child’s privacy settings and interactions while using the app.
