Is Words With Friends Classic safe for my kids?

Due to the chat feature, this game is not safe for kids.

Words with Friends Classic is a wildly popular app that offers the opportunity for users to enhance their vocabulary while socializing with friends.  There are, however, features of the app that make it unsafe for kids.

As confirmed by user reviews, some users abuse the app by using it to engage others in inappropriate conversations.  If there were controls or settings that allowed for blocking invites from strangers and children only played the game with their actual friends, this would be a safe educational and social experience.

Also, because there are ads present in the app, there is the potential for children to see inappropriate content. 

The following themes are also relevant to the Words with Friends Classic app: cyberbullying, tech addiction and sexting.
