App Details

ooVoo allows users to make video calls, voice calls, and instant message. The app enables users to talk to people they do not know.

Why is it a risk?

ooVoo is rated as PEGI 3 by the Play Store……. Again, a common issue with apps such as ooVoo is that profile information is public by default, and as a result children have reported feeling uncomfortable at times as they can be contacted by strangers and added into chat groups with people they don't know. According to Teen Safe, the site has many adult users and contains a lot of inappropriate content. Howver, ooVoo does have more sophisticated privacy and blocking option settings which allow the user to choose who may contact them; how they may be contacted; and who can view their information. According to NetAware, 45% of young people reviewing the site knew how to do this.
