Skout is an app that is used as a dating app for minors and has led to many child sexual assaults. Like many localized dating apps, Skout uses your phones global positioning system to find other users nearby. While searching for people, users can view the profile and recent activities of others that they find interesting. The application also allows users to instant message or send virtual gifts to one another. Although the teen and adult communities are segregated, it can be easy to fake accounts which can lead to dangerous interactions.
