“We have been informed by Northumbria Police about an app called 'Yellow' which is available on both i Phone and Android,” wrote Castletown Primary School in Sunderland, in a Facebook post.

It is very easy for adults to use the app, posing as a young person.” Since it launched, Yellow has banned profile pictures that don’t contain faces and made it a requirement for users who want to change their date of birth after sign-up to first provide proof of age to the company.

A new dating app that has exactly the same look and feel as Tinder (swipe to the left, swipe to the right, make judgements with just a photo, etc.) except it is directly linked to Snapchat, so you can start sending snaps straight away.
