Online Safety Awareness – Unico App

Unico Live is a live streaming app with unicorn imagery which is likely to appeal to children. It allows users to broadcast live video of themselves over the internet. There have been reports of the app being used inappropriately by adults to encourage children to engage in sexualised activity. Other live streaming apps are also available and have similar risks. Schools are recommended to raise staff awareness of the risks of Unico and other live streaming apps, and to share this information with parents via school websites and newsletters. 

 

Further information about the Unico Live app and the risks can be found on the Safer Schools blog
