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.
- Publically displaying all user generated content to ensure all material created on the WTKS platform is visible to any user, at any time.
Having trouble keeping up with what the kids are saying these days? The ‘in’ words for teenagers change more frequently than they volunteer to help with the dishes, so we have put compiled a list of some ‘lit’ new words so you know what they are saying.
Awks - awkward Basic – only interested in mainstream Cancel – a rejection of a person, place or thing Cheddar – money Dope – cool or awesome Dude – mate GOAT – greatest of all time Gucci – good or cool Hundo P – 100 percent certain K – OK Lit – when something’s very good or going extremely well OMG – an abbreviation of ‘oh my gosh’ Rides – sneakers or shoes Salty – a bit angry Savage – a rude person Sic – something that is cool Skurt – go away Snatched – looks good Squad – a group that hang out together Straight fire – hot or trendy TBH – to be honest Thirsty – trying to get attention V - very Yass queen – enthusiastic support for a friend Yeet – yeet YOLO – you only live once
