"Operation Zephyr" Apps for Pedophiles

Police in a specialist South West unit have issued a warning about a number of apps being used to target children for sexual abuse and rape.
Operation Zephyr – the Southwest Regional Organised Crime Unithas named a number of programs which are being used by paedophiles in a bid to groom children.
A spokesmansaid: “MyLOL bills itself as the '#1 teen dating site in the US, Australia, UK and Canada' and claims to have more than 300,000 members around the world.
It invites users to meet 'thousands of teenagers like you' and then goes on to describe how users can 'chat with members or privately with someone'.
It's not the first time concerns have been raised about dating apps aimed at young people, back in November, the NSPCC warned against new app Yellow, labelled 'Tinder for teens', which could be used by predators to groom youngsters.
“Surrey Police have shared concerns about a new App, MyLOL which encourages young people to share photos and chat online privately with other members.
Advice is for parents to be vigilant and, if appropriate, to spend time talking to their child about the app and if necessary delete it and block the website."
The crime unit also raised concerns about Chatstepan encrypted, web based, instant messaging platform hosted in Canada" which was already being used to share images of abuse.

It added: “The website has the facility for a user to create or join an existing public chat room, and then chat and share images with other users.
“There is also the ability to password protect chat rooms to make them 'private'. Users may upload images and share URL links within the chat rooms and it is understood that up to 20 users may enter and communicate within chat rooms at one time.
This site is a growing trend and a hotspot for people looking to share indecent images of children."
It went on: “Monkey is an iPhone app that allows you to Facetime strangers and linking yourselves by snapchat. Creators say the video chat app is essentially 'Chatroulette, without the pervs', which seems too early to say.

“The app randomly connects you to a person anywhere in the world and gives you 10 seconds to accept the chat based on age, sex and location. You have to mutually opt-in to a chat, in other words, rather than opting-out like with Chatroulette.
“Safety features include a report button on screen, which can be used to easily report and block inappropriate monkey business, however that person is free to continue talking to others.
“Although not currently seen in the South West with regards to CSE it is an app to watch out for given its likely take up by young persons."
The child sexual exploitation (CSE) bulletin is issued monthly to inform both police and partner practitioners working with children of apps that have been involved in CSE cases throughout the month in the South West region.

The bulletin provides a number of links to online resources to help educate adults and young people around the issue of online safety and app security including the UK safer internet centre and the Revenge porn hotline.
