As of August 2018 the popular lip syncing app no longer exists in its original form. The parent company of Tik Tok, hugely popular in the Asian markets, purchased and have now merged the two. As such, anyone with an account on has now had that account automatically switched over to Tik Tok. Both work in similar ways, with Tik Tok having slightly advanced special features and effects to allow greater creativity to edit, share and view the millions of videos created daily.

There are some important safeguarding and online safety concerns that parents need to be aware of in relation to this app. Please read this National Online Safety information poster, specifically designed to support parents.
