We asked parents how easy they thought it would be for a child to pretend to be older in order to sign up to Flipagram, and whether they had to verify their phone number or email address. Based on these answers, Flipagram has received a negative rating for its sign up process.
Here are some of the things parents said:
- “Very easy and straightforward - just downloaded from Google Play and got started. I used my existing Gmail account to log in and had access to the video recording straight away without verification of email. I wasn't prompted to look at my privacy settings on my new Flipagram account.” – Mother of 13 yr old boy
- “Found it very easy so younger children would be able to do it too.” – Mother of 8 and 15 yr olds
