Kilgore PD warns parents about the use of new phone app

Posted: Updated:

EAST TEXAS (KYTX) - Kilgore Police Department warns parents about a new iPhone application that is gaining popularity with students at local school campuses. 

The app, which is called "Whisper," is available for both the iPhone and the Droid.

"Whisper" app is described as a way to express yourself, share secrets and meet new people. Anyone can get the app since it is offered free of charge.

Content is posted anonymously and therein lays the problem with the app. With anonymous posts come bullying, harassment and inappropriate content being posted according to Kilgore PD.

Kilgore Police Department's local Kilgore School Resource Officers have been putting a lot of time in dealing with these type issues due to users of the Whisper app. Parents are advised to be aware of the Whisper app and the unhealthy environment it can create.
