Skout app under scrutiny after reported rapes

Share

The Skout platform and mobile application is now off limits to everyone under the age of 18. The sudden ban on teen access to Skout follows several allegations of rape by teenage children. The Skout app connects mobile users with other people nearby by tracking their location through GPS.

Skout

The program was originally intended for adult use when Skout launched in 2007. Later, the company added a new network designed for teenagers between 13 and 17, to encourage younger users to avoid using the primary, adult-oriented network. All of the recently reported cases of rape involving the networking platform occurred after an adult male posed as a teenager in the young adult network.

Currently, three cases of rape have been reported and are under investigation. Two girls, age 12 and 15, as well as a 13 year old boy said that they were assaulted after agreeing to meet a stranger that they met through Skout. The alleged perpetrators are all adult males, with ages ranging between 20 and 40.
