About KakaoStory

What is KakaoStory?

KakaoStory is a social networking app that allows users to share updates with their friends about their day.


KakaoStory is rated for teen users and can be downloaded from the App Store or the Google Play Store. This app does feature in-app purchases.


Users can edit their own photos and video clips with filters, similar to SnapChat and Instagram. Throughout the day their friends can take a look at what they posted. Like Facebook and Instagram, KakaoStory features a newsfeed where users can see updates from their friends and other users. They can use the search function to look for other people on the app based on their location. The app has been downloaded over 50 million times.


KakaoStory belongs to a family of Kakao apps, including KakaoTalk, KakaoMetro and KakaoMap. Most people who have tried the app say they’re satisfied with it, but it’s nothing out of the ordinary. It’s like most photo sharing apps, and it seems that most people who use KakaoStory also use other Kakao apps. Kakao Corporation is headquartered in South Korea, so its client base is mostly located in Asia.

Is KakaoStory safe for my kids?

KakaoStory is safe for teens with some parental supervision. Targeted at teens and adults, the nature of this social media sharing platform does not make it suitable for kids.

Users are able to take a look at what people all around the world are posting, and the content might not always be child-friendly. The majority of people using KakaoStory are between the ages of 18 and 24, and most of them are across the globe.

The app requires permission to access the user’s phone storage and information. This means that teens will be allowing the app to retrieve their photos and videos. Users can also share their location in order to find nearby friends, but this also exposes them to other users who might not know them personally, this could be especially concerning for parents.

On the other hand, users can choose to share private stories that only their friends will be able to see. Parents should also know that people on KakaoStory can leave comments on other people’s photos and videos. The app doesn’t ask for age verification; it just requests access to device storage in order to install.

KakaoStory is similar to CyWorld and WeChat, and poses the risk of contacting strangers online. Parents should monitor their teens when using the app.
