πŸ“š Advice

Yubo is a great place for young people to connect with friends but, as with any social network, you might have some concerns about your child or students using it.

Our community guidelines outline what is acceptable and what is not on Yubo and we encourage our users, their families and other concerned adults to contact us about anything inappropriate or illegal they see on the app so that we can take action.

We respond quickly when we are aware of any rules being broken and we report potentially illegal activity, such as Fake profiles & scams, to law enforcement.

In this section, we look at some of the main concerns you might have, provide online safety advice and explain what we’re doing to help protect young people on Yubo.

Bullying

Bullying can be really hurtful, whether it’s online or in the real world.

Inappropriate language

Young people often test boundaries with the language they use on the internet – do you understand their online code?

Sexual exploitation

Unfortunately, some people target children and teenagers online for sexual purposes.

Nudity

Flirting, exploring sexual feelings and having relationships – a natural part of growing up – increasingly happens online.

Fake profiles & scams

On social networks, people sometimes pretend to be someone they are not – how can you spot a fake and avoid a catfish?

Self-harm & Suicide

Sadly, the pressures of growing up sometimes lead to depression and suicidal thoughts.

Harmful & illegal content

Violence, drugs, racism, homophobia, violent extremism... do young people know to deal with this kind of online content?

Self-esteem

Some teenagers experience body shaming, bullying and other forms of humiliation in the digital world.

Peer pressure

From just-for-fun pranks to more serious dares, teens often find themselves under pressure from others online.
