Threat Level- Moderate
With the growth of video sharing apps such as Vine and Instagrams new video feature, you should start seeing a rise of the video sharing apps. Kilp is a perfect example.
Kilp app is free on all markets that lets you share videos that are up to One minute long with your friends inside the Klip app and also to other popular social media apps like Facebook and Twitter. You can also send Private videos and group videos to a select few. Klip acts as an instant messenger also allowing you to text others in your Klip network.
The Klip app also adds the feature that allows you to post forever or a disappearing video. This means you can set how many times your video is viewed, so if you want one person to view your video and then delete itself, it will.
Klip acts like most social networking apps and allows you to create your basic profile with your picture and information that you provide. You then invite your other friends to follow you to be able to view your videos (similar to Facebook). The public videos are shared with anyone on the app and can be categorized.
The interface for Klip reminds me of a mixture of Facebook and Instagram. Once your 1 minute video is complete, you are able to go through 10 editing options to add to your video. Once uploaded your friends (or anyone if public) can give your videos likes.
As for safety of this app, it is age restricted to 12 and up, so it is targeting the teenage group as users.
I have this app a moderate threat level which is higher than usual on this type of app due to the fact that the app has the option to delete a video automatically after the other party views it. This seems like 1 minute of video us as parents wouldn’t know about that could be dangerous to our children.
If your child has this app, be sure to monitor there friends list inside app and also the personal messages they are sending. Remind them anything that says it deletes itself…probably doesn’t delete it completely.
