- If your child has this app, you must delete it
The mobile app Periscope has become very popular among children and youths. By using the app, you can send live video from your smartphone, and those watching can comment during the live broadcast.

Now child welfare in Sweden has found it necessary to go out and warn parents against the app.

- I've even seen children in elementary school filming themselves in the bedroom, says Fatima Viklund, of the child welfare, to Sveriges Radio.

According to her, children as young as 10 years old are pressured to do different things - just to get more viewers.

- Is it true that they take off their clothes?

- Absolutely. There have been cases where they have taken off their clothes and cases where they are drinking. They are encouraged by others to drink more and more, explains Viklund.

Authorities now fear that the use of Periscope can become an arena for grooming and pedophiles online. They want to warn parents against the risks associated with its use.

- I think there are very many parents who do not have an overview of this.

- There have been situations, taking off their clothes and showing skin, discussions with strangers they do not know who is. People are anonymous, and you do not know who's watching or who you talk to, says Viklund, to Sveriges Radio.

According to NewsNet, child welfare encourages parents to delete the app immediately if they see that their children have it.
