Yolo app

    Hello All,

    We have a cyber bullying case in the house. I allowed my daughter download yolo on snapchat. Naive by me as I didn't really understand it. We now have a situation where somebody in her contacts has been online bullying her on the app but its anonymous. I would like to be able to find out who so I can approach her school with this info.
    Can anyone help me with how to reveal usernames on the app?

    Thanks in advance.

    I had to google it.
    The app is supposed to be anonymous so I doubt there is anything to find.
    The exact reasons kids love YOLO — anonymity, curiosity, honesty — are why the app could (and by some reports already has) turn into the latest breeding ground for bullying. Similar to anonymous apps preceding YOLO such as Yik Yak and Saraha, users can say whatever they want without attaching their name. Apple and Google stores have banned similar anonymous apps over accusations of hate speech and bullying.

    It has a "What parents can do" section.
