Ogle

ogle-app

Ogle is a social media app that allows children to make anonymous posts to their campus. Ogle actually identifies the locations of the schools and lists each school inside the app. If a particular school does not show up on the list, users simply send a request, via the app, to have their school added to the list. Because Ogle does not identify or verify users, it can be used for bullying, threats and other borderline illegal activities. It is reported that users of Ogle have recently posted several violent threats against specific teachers as well as mass shooting threats. Ogle has no method of monitoring posts as they are made but does have a guideline that users are supposed to follow. As with ALL anonymous apps, we believe that Ogle is very toxic and should not be used by teens or children.
