We have been made aware of a new internet challenge that children are seeing through access to the internet. So far it has been reported to be seen on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Whats App and appears in the game Minecraft.
The challenge is called Momo. There is a horror character that appears on the screen and asks them to accept the challenge. If they do not accept the challenge it tells them that the character will come and get them in the night whilst they are sleeping, if they do accept the challenge it encourages self harm and eventually suicide.
Please be aware of this if your child is using any of the above apps.
