Online Safety Guide: W App

The brainchild of three Berlin-based developers, W App (initially known as ‘Slay’) was an instant hit – claiming the number one spot on the App Store in its home country just four days after launching in early 2023. Its central concept – to “promote positive online interactions” – is certainly praiseworthy but can actually introduce additional risks if not delivered carefully.

W App’s comparative lack of verification processes at the sign-up stage, for instance, leaves the door open for misuse by impersonators and potential predators: far from ideal on a platform that’s explicitly geared towards a school-aged teen audience. This guide tells parents and carers what they need to know about the possible pitfalls on W App.
