What is the AntiLand App?

  • The Anonymous Chat Rooms app from AntiLand offers users the ability to anonymously chat with other users around the world
  • Similar to Snapchat and Instagram Stories, messages self destruct on the app
  • Users earn Karma for texting different users, sending pictures, buying artifacts in their profile, and receiving gifts from other users
  • Karma is considered the user’s “social status” on the app

Why should parents care?

  • Anonymous apps like the AntiLand app can be very dangerous for students to use because they encourage users to chat with strangers
  • Every chat our team participated in became explicit within the first few messages
  • Teens as young as 17 can join the app
  • The app is marketed by some as a hook-up app
  • Content in chat rooms can be very mature and many users ask for pictures or to send pictures
  • The majority of the public chats our team participated in resulted in another user asking to chat privately so they could send explicit pictures
  • There is no verification process when signing up so it is very easy for students to lie about their age
  • It can be difficult for parents to get involved when their teen is using an anonymous app; when parents aren’t involved it can discourage teens from making wise decisions

Josh's presentation about social media was unbelievably fantastic. Our students learned so much about what kids should and shouldn't be doing. The fact that it is such a thoughtful process made it all worthwhile.

AntiLand App (formerly AntiChat) in the News:

Parents should know that Antichat's anonymity encourages risk taking and accountability-free behavior that often brings out the worst in people. A brief search of the public chat rooms finds very adult themed discussions and sexual predatory behavior. Online sexual predators thrive in chat rooms that are anonymous. –Cyber Safety Cop

What can parents do?

  • If your teen has the AntiLand app, have them delete it immediately and discuss the dangers of the app
  • When you’re ready for your student to be online, encourage them to use apps that positively impact their digital footprint
  • Before giving your student access to a device, teach your child to ask permission before downloading any app
  • Teach your children to never chat with strangers online, share their personal information on social media, or send pictures anonymously
