Is icq video calls & chat safe for my kids?

The ICQ app is not safe for kids. It facilitates semi-anonymous communication with strangers, the discovery and sharing of inappropriate content, and has been known for its cyberbullies and internet trolls.

This app isn’t extremely different from other messaging apps such as Snapchatand WhatsApp, but the problem arises when kids are able to chat with strangers through the channels features. Getting in contact with strangers here could lead to your child encountering internet predators and parents should discuss with their children the importance of internet safety and not disclosing personal information.

There is no content moderation or filtering on most of ICQ by default. ICQ asks users to confirm their date of birth in order to appropriately filter content, there is no age verification. Even if your child is limited in who they are allowed to contact, no one is more than a keyword or channel search away from seeing explicitly mature content on ICQ.

Parents should keep their kids away from this app and find a more age appropriate app for messaging and group chatting.
