e-Safety Concern

Like – Magic Music Video Editor
Following a concern raised by a parent, please be aware of an app – available for phones and tablets – which potentially exposes young users to risk.
Like – Magic Music Video Editor is a free video creation and editing app, similar to TikTok, that lets users star in their own music videos and share them online. All posts are public, though users can control who can message them – everyone or friends. There are concerns around suggestive content and viewers being able to send messages to individual video makers. Viewers can also share and comment on other users’ video content, which could result in inappropriate or mean commentary. During special ‘hashtag events’, users can earn real-world money by gathering ‘likes’, with the most popular videos appear on leaderboards and on the app’s front page.
Parent reviews on Common Sense Media are particularly concerning.
