Dear parents and carers
Please be vigilant regarding a new app called Monkey Web. We would advise you NOT to discuss this directly with your child – you do not want your child to search for it or create rumours within groups of children – but to closely monitor their use of devices and time spent online.
The app is specifically designed to attract children and is described an alternative to TikTok. On Google Play Store, its description reads ‘Make friends and chat to celebrities’ and the app has copied TikTok’s vertical style feed. However, it contains harmful content, including pornography and adult users attempting to interact inappropriately with children.
