// While Amino is intended to be accessible for young users, it is still an online social community.It is also intended to be used by adults, and on any such community, there is the potential for unscrupulous users to join with the intention to harass or take advantage of the youngest users.I do not feel that some of these communities are safe or appropriate for a young teens.Some of these communities can include gender and sexuality, self harm, creepypasta, slenderman, says not to get this app if your younger than eighteen so you get anyway its not the apps fault its like saying here child have this beer even though your to younger. ohhh this beer is bad for you lets go tell the beer company this!!!AMINO itself can include chats about pokemon but then members send you pornographic images (Seriously!? I found Amino on daughter's phone when doing a check.
) // And most of all, make it absolutely, totally clear that your child can ALWAYS come to you if they see something on the app that they don't know how to deal with!It's full of bullies (who even bully autists), they respond with lenny faces & kys (Kill yourself) but they do much more terrible things.The curators/leaders are bullies and the weird thing was that people love those bullies!I've heard stories of children being afraid to tell their parents about what they're dealing with because they don't want to get in trouble.// One final warning- at the time of this writing, Amino Apps has recently introduced voice and video chat features.Many of the communities are user-moderated, run by people with little moderation experience who are often minors themselves.// I don't think the app is inherently bad for kids- it serves as a way for people of a variety of age groups to discuss their interests with like-minded people.I gotta say that I am surprised at the negative reviews this app is getting I use it myself i own cat amino music amino tv & movie amino and food amino I haven't had a real problem with the apps myself yes I get you can talk to strangers but that's the point to make new friends if you are concerned about what your kids are using in the community's make an account yourself and see who knows you might have fun I love my Amino's This is a horrible app.Do not let your child under the age of 18 access this app.It's sad that I have to monitor my 10yr olds phone on a nightly basis because of apps like this one!!Entiching to young ones but the worst part is this: After several attempts at emailing the various addresses, I'm told they are refusing to delete a CHILD's profile without providing the CHILD's email FOR SECURITY PURPOSES..after the child has been interacting with adults although it's specified that it is NOT for children for obvious reasons.
