Application Warning

We have recently been made aware of an application called ‘Yik Yak’ that provides its users with an anonymous forum on which they can post views and comments.

Having monitored its use, we are concerned that this application provides opportunities for its users to post offensive comments about others.  The user of the application believes they are using the application anonymously as the misconception is that it is not possible to easily trace the source of such comments.
