Police have issued a warning over the ‘Blue Whale Challenge’ that encourages teenagers to take part in 50 tasks over 50 days that culminate in suicide.
The “Blue whale challenge” which allegedly originated in Russia in 2016 and is linked to numerous deaths around the world, compels its “players” to carryout 50 horrifying activities (one each day) and eventually progress to self harming.
Parents are enjoined to be mindful of what children are accessing online, and look out for any of this list of activities in the “game”:
On the 50th day, the controlling manipulators heavily linked with the name Jonathan Galindo, a man that may also be seen with his face painted like Mickey Mouse or a dog, reportedly instruct the players to kill themselves.
Some believe Jonathan Galindo is a hacker who finds it easy to tell details of his users like their age, school, address, mother’s name, model of phone and data such as his IP address.
