Online Safeguarding Alert

There is an app called 'Dumbsmash' which is video messaging app where people can upload themselves singing over famous songs and then choose to share via whatsapp, facebook, instagram or via a text message. It is not intended for children under 18 and you must be 18 or 13 years or older with parents permission to use it.

Dumbsmash 2 has nothing to do with Dumbsmash but is a malware app that hides itself on phones and then pushes users to adult sites. As soon as it is set up, the icon deletes itself and runs in the background without the users knowledge.
