The Momo Challenge Safety. Click here to view the entire letter.

The Momo Challenge

The “Momo Game” or “Momo Challenge” has been around since last summer. It has resurfaced and has gone viral again. It is believed to have been originally created by hackers searching for personal information. When it first surfaced the “doll” would encourage kids to add a contact to the popular messaging application, “WhatsApp Messenger.” That contact would then bombard them with graphic, violent images and would dare them to do horrendous acts. These acts included doing harm to others and ultimately themselves.

Ultimately this is a form of cyber bullying. With the resurfacing of this game and where the photos have been attached, a substantially younger crowd is being forced to deal with this matter. Just having to see the photo of the “doll” could be disturbing enough for this age of kids. The photos and videos have been seen on YouTube, YouTube Kids, and more specifically Peppa the Pig videos.

I want to appeal to all parents to not simply focus on “Momo,” but I want to urge them to:

● Ensure that they know what their kid can access online.
● Ensure that their kids understand the importance of NOT giving out personal information online.
● Tell their children NO-ONE has the right to make them do anything they do not want to do.
● Use parental controls on all online devices that their kid has access too.

I believe we all need to be vigilant in protecting our kids in anything that they are involved in. in today’s world our kids are online more and more every day.

At this time during my research I am finding no evidence that devices are being “hacked” or viruses being attached when the photos and/or videos are seen. That being said I have spoken to a couple people that have had issues with their devices after “Momo” was seen on their device.
