Dear Parents/ Carers,
Please see below a link to the most recent parent guide regarding a new online concern, Avakin Life:
Described as a place where teens and adults can make new friends, Avakin Life is a mobile game that has more than 1.4 million daily users. The game lets players create a virtual avatar (an ‘Avakin’), style it in fashionable outfits, buy and decorate properties, and interact with others in communal spaces. It’s this social aspect which has caused safety concerns, with many parents and carers unsure if the game is suitable for teenagers at all.
In the guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential risks such as in-game chat, adult themes and in-game spending.
If you require any further information or advice please do not hesitate to contact me.
