Toxic Apps was created by two fathers who happen to be app developers.  Using their extensive knowledge of how apps and social media works, they decided to create a place where parents could begin to understand the risks that some apps pose for minor children.


To keep children safe in today’s digital world by creating better cyber parents.


To teach parents how to identify and manage cyber risks that threaten their child’s safety.

We identify apps that are popular and dangerous for minors.  Toxic apps, are listed along with our unique rating icons.  Our rating icons give parents an easy way to spot risks.  In addition, we explain why each app is toxic for minors and provide links to recent news articles, websites and the actual app in the App Store and Google Play.
