What do parents need to know about Triller?
Triller has searchable content even if you don’t have an account. We performed some naughty keyword searches for #sexy, #porn, #twerk and of course there’s content. Nothing nude that we found. “Just” suggestive.
Unlike TikTok, there are zero parental controls. No restricted mode. No time limits. No parental pairing.
Triller feeds on the promise of becoming famous. And even living in some swanky home on the West Coast like these guys. They’re making a lot of money. And girls might be swooning. But I wasn’t sure if I should laugh, cry, pity – not sure! I hope they know this isn’t real life.
The bottom line: Is Triller good for your kids?
Just like its cousin – TikTok – this app is mostly a time suck on the precious lives of teenagers. Kids might be able to use it well and they might not get caught up in the dopamine-induced promise of Triller fame. We’re just not sure it’s worth the risk of finding out if your kid is the exception.
Ready to monitor social media? Then it’s time for Bark.
Because the app is brand new, no one monitors it yet. But, Bark can send an alert when new apps are downloaded. Plus, they cover plenty of other apps that kids love, including texts, chat, email, YouTube, and 24+ social media platforms for signs of cyberbullying, suicidal ideation, adult content, and more.
Parents and guardians don’t have to read every message — instead, they’ll get alerts only when there’s a potential issue. Sign up today for a free, one-week trial!
