Live.ly allowed users to live stream in real time to other users - merged into Musical.ly app in 2018
Why is it a risk?
Live.ly was a live-streaming app. One research study reported that nearly half of children and young people interviewed thought that live.ly could be risky. Risk factors for this app were numerous, and include the fact that anyone online could see your content if you didn't change your privacy settings. Moreover, there are risks associated with live streaming in general. Children could accidentally reveal their location, say or see inappropriate things or share personal information. In 2017, the Daily Mail reported that children as young as 9 were being bombarded with extremely inappropriate sexual requests.
