For Parents

With the target market of the WTKS app being teenagers, the safety of our users is of paramount importance to us.

Staying safe online

We want your child to have a safe online experience and for you to be part of it. Discuss online safety, networking and privacy with them. The Australian Government Office of the eSafety Commissioner provides some resources we recommend.

WTKS safety measures

We have implemented a number of safety measures to ensure content on our platform is suitable for everyone. Some of the steps we have taken to prevent exposure to inappropriate material and keep our users safe include:

  • Blocking specified words or phrases (such as swear words) from being posted in reviews or being used in usernames.
  • Manually screening all reviews to ensure the suitability of the content within them.
  • Opening links to websites of WHAT THE KIDS SAY advertising partners within the WTKS app itself, ensuring users cannot navigate to other webpages.
  • Suspending or deleting profiles which breach the WTKS Terms of Use.
  • Publically displaying all user generated content to ensure all material created on the WTKS platform is visible to any user, at any time.
  • Giving users the ability to report a review which does not comply with our Terms of Use. A review can by reported by selecting 'Report' in the review, or by getting in contact with us at reportareview@whatthekidssay.com with details of the review being reported.
