About WordPress

What is WordPress?

Wordpress is a blogging app that allows users to manage their personal websites by creating and editing both posts and pages. It can be downloaded for free from iTunes and Google Play and offers the choice of in-app purchases.

 

Once the app is downloaded and users have either created or signed in to their Wordpress account, they can then go forward with writing a new post or editing a previous publication. In addition to writing text, Wordpress allows individuals to insert other graphics, such as photos and videos.

 

If another user has commented on one of your pages or posts, you can respond to them through the app.

 

Wordpress also allows users to see their sites’ stats in order to determine what countries their followers are based in, how many individuals have looked at each specific post, and how much time users generally spend browsing through their blog or site.

 

While the app generally receives positive reviews of approximately 4 out of 5 stars, some users have stated that they have difficulty with logging into their accounts and their email addresses are not recognized by the app.

Is WordPress safe for my kids?

Due to the fact that Wordpress contains many mature themes and has several interactive features, it should only be used by individuals aged 16 and older with parental supervision. However, users only need to be 13 to make an account with the app.

Parents should know that Wordpress has very few restrictions on what content can be posted through the app, meaning that users are able to write about mature topics that contain profanity, suggestive themes, and references to drugs, alcohol, and violence. Many parents may not be comfortable with their child having access to this content, which is why children should be supervised when using Wordpress, or forgo making an account altogether.

It is important to note that the app allows users to interact with other individuals, particularly those that are strangers. If an individual has a blog or website that is publicly shared on the Internet, other people can find this blog and comment on specific posts or pages. This creates the possibility of users coming into contact with online strangers.

Finally, the app requires substantial amounts of personal information, such as access to a user’s location, contacts, camera, and phone data. Many parents may not be comfortable with an app-developer having this much of their child’s private details. If this is the case, simply prevent your child from using this app.
