Snap Chat, recently launched a new application called Yolo, which allows users to send questions anonymously.

However, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) warned that it could be used in bad behavior that could endanger young people.

According to Mirror, NSPCC claims that users can receive abusive messages or that young people are exploited because of this new feature.

Although the application was launched a week ago, it has topped the list of the most downloaded applications in the United States and Britain.

Many other platforms that use the anonymous questions feature have been affected by number problems and abuses.

 

Andy Brooz, the child safety co-chair, said applications such as Yolo could cause abusive messages and questions to users, and Snap should justify how children would be protected from the application.

Last month, the British government published a white paper on Internet damage that states that technology companies must protect their users and face punishment if otherwise.

The application was developed using the Snap Kit platform, which is part of Snap Chat, which allows application developers to integrate their products with popular platforms.

This allows users to add a graphic to the image and send anonymous messages to other users or contacts through the story feature.
