The privacy settings can be found by clicking oo Vooprivacy & security.

See below for detailed instructions for choosing privacy settings.

If you do decide to let your child use oo Voo, make sure you have ongoing conversations with them about how they are using this and other services.

This is separated into those friends who are online and those who are offline. It’s far safer to only be friends online with people they know and trust in the real world.

Sit down with your child and together look at their friends lists. If they still wish to be friends with people they don’t know, advise them to limit what they share with them.

To block a person, tap the Block icon and then tap Block. Select the Block and Remove option to remove them from your friend list.

oo Voo is free to use for video calls and send text messages.

They will not be able to contact you and they won’t know that you have blocked them.

Click on the small arrow next to their name in your friends list and a menu list will appear.

Ultimately, the decision as to whether or not a child under 13 is on oo Voo and similar sites lies with the child’s parent or carer.

CEOP recommends that sites such as oo Voo should only be used by young people aged over 13 who have set their privacy settings to allow contact only with people they know and trust in the real world.

oo Voo is a video chat app: it lets you make video calls, voice calls and send texts.
