What Parents Need to Know About Tellonym

< Back to the news

Tellonym is a popular messaging app that gives users the ability to ask questions and receive answers anonymously. The app is free to download and was initially launched to help alleviate anxiety, deepen relationships and encourage social connections. However, concerns have been raised in the past due to the app facilitating online bullying behaviour. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help parents and carers understand exactly what Tellonym is all about.

Tellonym encourages anonymous messaging to promote honesty and to help users move away from superficial content. But is it safe to use? How can it be manipulated? And what safety steps can you implement? Find out with this guide.

Created by online safety and social media expert, Jonathan Taylor, this guide aims to give parents a starting point to help them understand exactly what they need to know about Tellonym.
