Learn more about Yolo, the anonymous in-game app that’s new to success in the US

The Yolo app is the new sensation of the United States and is at the top of the most downloaded App Store American, Apple’s official software store for iPhone (iOS).

The popularity of the Snapchat anonymous question service is also due to controversy: it is being denounced for abuse and intimidation.

According to the BBC, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) of the United Kingdom, said that Snapchat itself may have to intervene in the situation, as this type of function offers dangers.

With the platform, users can add a sticker on a photo to invite others to send anonymous messages. Just like in Instagram Stories, the image can be sent to social network contacts or posted on the timeline.

Interested parties can comment on the answers and share them in the same way. The software displays an alert for users on first access: “Yolo has no tolerance for objectionable content or abusive users.

Platform founder Gregoire Henrion told TechCrunch that he did not expect such popularity. “It was not for Yolo to be a success. It was just for us to learn,” he told the tech site.

The application is a new addition to Snap Kit, a platform for outsourced developers to integrate their products into Snapchat. The Kit was launched last year by the social network and Yolo was created by Popshow Inc, a French startup. This was previously responsible for an application for people to post their reactions to funny videos.

In addition to Snapchat, other platforms also had stories of polemics involving bullying and virtual violence, such as Sarahah and Secret. In the latter, the user did not answer questions, but published – anonymously – secrets about anyone, and there were no mechanisms to control use.

In the case of Sarahah, a fever in 2017, those interested in asking anonymous questions need not register on the platform. The system has made room for cybercrime and has also been banned from Google Play and App Store stores.
