What do parents need to know about Bitmoji?
Some profanity: reading the reviews, some young users have complained about the inappropriate language present in a few of the stickers.
Hidden Google access? Yes, there is. But, this is true for most apps, and doesn’t make Bitmoji unique. It’s just something for parents to always be aware of.
The bottom line – is Bitmoji safe?
The Bitmoji app age rating of 12+ feels appropriate. The risks are minimal when compared to many of the apps kids (and adults!) enjoy using.
