Internet Safety – Parent Alert

https://nationalonlinesafety.com/resources/platform-guides/momo-online-safety-guide-for-parents/

Please be aware of the ‘Momo’ challenge. This is not new, but has resurfaced recently. The Highland Council is very aware of this ‘game’ and has blocked access to the Momo challenge. However, children have access to a variety of devices outwith school and may unfortunately stumble across this. Awareness is the key and deleting the challenge should mean that this is the end of the viral chain.

The Momo Challenge is a creepy character has recently taken over the internet called ‘Momo’, which is the new Slenderman to target children. Momo is a viral challenge which encourages kids to add a contact on WhatsApp. Momo is certainly a mixture of ‘Blue Whale Challenge & Slenderman, in the way it is a ‘creepy’ character that sets challenges that can end with self harm.

We have had lots of help from Mrs Dalseme, who takes the Primary 4 – 7 children for art.
