Dear Parents and Carers,
South Yorkshire Police and Social Care have passed on some concerning information regarding a new social media app called 'Frog'. The app is aimed at a primary aged audience and has recently exploded in popularity. Police have significant concerns as the app is mainly targeted at primary aged children. The app has very limited identity verification requirements.
Specialist police partners have seen significant information suggesting there is a legitimate risk to primary aged children being groomed.
As always, we would ask parents to be vigilant of the apps children are using, especially as this one is aimed specifically at primary aged children.
Please be aware of a new phishing scam circulating via text messaging services and Whatsapp.
