Cybertip

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection, through its Cybertip.ca program, is informing the public about an app called Communet: Student Chats & Confessions currently trending with youth in Canada. The app allows users to anonymously post comments under sections that are broken out by school name. In many cases, youth are being singled out by name in comments used for personal attacks related to appearance, sexuality, race, threats or harassment.



We encourage parents to have an open and honest discussion with their children about cyberbullying and harassment to limit the harmful impacts of this extremely concerning online activity. If a parent/guardian becomes aware of her/his child using the app on a personal device, we highly recommend the parent/guardian discuss and advise his/her child to discontinue use of the app and remove it. Parents encountering issues with this app are also strongly encouraged to notify their child’s school to ensure those regularly interacting with your child are attuned to any issues being faced among peers.cyberbullying and harassment to limit the harmful impacts of this extremely concerning online activity.

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection has also created a number of new resources for educators related to cyberbullying to address the diverse and complex nature of this type of online activity. For more information on these resources, visit Kids in the Know. We encourage everyone to get involved in addressing the issue of cyberbullying and pass on information related to these valuable resources.
