Melons Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Melon app (manufacturer’s site) is a video chat app that allows people from all over the world to connect by just tapping a button. Users can chat with as many different individuals as they like and the app records a history of chats so you can revisit and chat with your “new found” friends in the future. Certain filters allow users to talk with people in more specifically selected regions.
According to PROTECT YOUNG EYES website The Melon app it’s clearly not an app for middle and high school students due to its random video pairing. This app is not meant for kids and should be avoided at all costs. Again, the #1 way to avoid exposure to negative apps is to turn off the app store in Apple’s restrictions. It’s that easy!
What do parents need to know about Melon?
Zero Privacy. The app pairs you with other users based solely on your age and gender. Once you create an account, you are automatically connected with another user via video. There is an option to direct message users so the video chat does not have to be used. The location feature can remain off but there is an option to enter your location under your profile; this is often used since part of the draw is you can “make friends all over the world!”
Cyberbullying, threats, and violence. Without any sort of real filtering possible on the front end of video chatting and because users control their own video feed, the abundance of cruel and unusual behavior is prevalent and difficult to manage. Abuse and misuse can be reported, but only after the fact.
Pornographic content. All anonymous video-sharing apps bring with them the risk of seeing inappropriate things. Some have compared this app to a cross between Omegle and Tinder without the dating aspect, but the stage is set perfectly for questionable hook-ups to occur.
