The “Send this Instead” app empowers kids giving them a voice when they are under pressure to send intimate images of themselves online.
Have you heard about this app?
Members of the Ontario Provincial Police, Child Sexual Exploitation Unit in Ontario, have launched a sexting alternative app for teens called Send This Instead.
They asked all the funny people they knew, “What would you say if someone asked you to send images you didn’t want to?” They then took their answers and made posters and developed the app. The posters are witty, sarcastic and meant to help get the point across – using humor as a strategy.
The app is available on Android and Apple devices.
