Bleow is a Facebook post from the Police Service of Northern Island (PSNI) They recently issued a warning to parents urging them to supervise their kids’ activity on WhatsApp because of a game called MOMO.
**Suicide game targeting our kids**
Some information on the latest "Momo" game which is doing the rounds at the moment😨
This game conceals itself within other harmless looking games played by our kids! There has also been reports of parts of the game being viewable on YouTube
The character in the photo below is ‘Momo’ and when downloaded tells your child to communicate with them via WhatsApp and a number of other widely used apps. "Momo" then tells your child to self harm or she will put a curse on them!
Our advice as always, is to supervise the games your kids play and be extremely mindful of the videos they are watching on YouTube. Ensure that the devices they have access to are restricted to age suitable content.
