DANGEROUS APP - DELETE!!!
The short version: Tellonym is toxic. Kids should not have it.
Detail: This is an app that allows anyone to post anything about other users, while remaining anonymous. It is heaven for trolls who want to post the most vile, graphically violent, racist, misogynistic and sexual messages imaginable. Some messages seem to taunt users to consider suicide. (“Why are you even alive? Nobody likes you.”) In addition, Tellonym allows plenty run-of-the-mill cyberbullying like: “You think you have friends, Sophie, but we all really hate you.” And because the company promises it will never reveal who posts this garbage, there is nothing you can do but request to delete it (which they may or may not), and then calm your devastated child who installed the app behind your back, because “Everyone has it.” Oh, and it’s the perfect haven for pedophiles to contact tweens and teens, masquerading as kids themselves and asking your child seemingly innocent questions like where they go to school, or requesting that they post a photo! Found some of those, too. This does unbelievable damage to kids’ self-esteem and mental health. There is nothing good that can come of having this app. Check your child’s phone and if it’s there, talk to them about why you need to delete it.
Please get back to me ASAP.
Last night, a student took a screenshot of an anxiety-inducing message sent anonymously to her Tellonym account. The sender of the message threatened that he would bring his guns to school, and commence a shooting during first period. This worried many students, who quickly spread it across Instagram as a warning to their friends and community members. Even the principal was alerted within an hour of the message posting, and the state police department was notified.
If the developers could make this a reality, I think many situations like this could be prevented. Regulating the anonymous messages via flagged words or phrases and having a way to keep track of who sends the messages would be very much appreciated. I know it may be difficult for the developers to implement because of privacy rights, but this would be a great call.
It is hard for the school administration to determine if this is a legitimate threat, and it would make it so much easier for us to solve this problem if these suggestions can be implemented.
If this is possible in any ways, then please. Make it happen. We need to protect our schools and our students. I myself am a student, and I do not want to attend school with the fear that we could be next.
DELETE THE APP NOW!!
This app is not good at all! Being able to be anonymous while posting things on here resulted into something that was probably not meant for this app! But it is one way for people to send threats. And this is happening to my school right now. Someone sent a message to a student at my school and said that they are going to shoot up our school, and kill everyone and anyone. This is no joke! This app should be deleted! This gives people a way to threat someone without being found. Now we may never know who this person is threatening our school. And we won’t know if we are safe until someone can get to the bottom of who is in charge of the threats! DO NOT USE THIS APP. They need to delete it ASAP!
