Monkey encourages users to video chat with strangers from around the world.
Why is it a risk?
The Monkey app randomly matches users via video chat. When matched with a stranger, users can add more time, add the person on Snapchat or move onto the next random match. The App Store discloses that there is a mild risk of sexual content, nudity, profanity, crude humour, mature and suggestive themes. Review sites have disclosed that there are absolutely zero parental controls, making the application extremely high risk for users, in addition to a lack of age verification methods imposed.
