It is near impossible to keep up with all the new apps that are developed on a daily basis, but here is another we found that you should know about.  It is called Lipsi and is another easy way for kids to hurt each other anonymously on the internet.

“Lipsi is a location-based anonymous messaging app. Users, who must be 17+, can search who they want to message and do it anonymously. You can also choose to reveal your identity, or not. This app also lets users delete messages for both parties, so there’s no reliable way for parents to check if their kids are using Lipsi safely.

Anonymous messaging apps are always something to be worried about (i.e. cyber bullying), but any time location becomes a variable, it becomes an even greater safety concern for parents.”
