Commonly known as the “Tinder for Kids,” it makes sense this hot new smartphone app has caught the FBI’s attention.

It’s called Yellow and it’s a smartphone app that allows a user to connect with people with a quick swipe. Once they’re connected, Yellow users can swap messages, even pictures – similar to the popular dating app Tinder. Except it’s primarily teens using it.

“Here comes Yellow, it takes the place of Tinder, it’s exactly the same,” Rhonda Porter, General Counsel for Akron City Schools, said.

Marketing itself as a place to “make new friends,” Yellow reports seven million users worldwide, and Porter told News 5, teens in Northeast Ohio area are on it.

“I’m keeping it real! Absolutely they’re using it,” she said.

But what’s adding to concern? There’s no age verification system – meaning, nothing is in place to stop an adult from posing as a much younger user.
