    It is scary to learn that the recent online suicidal challenges are targeting kids that are fond of using gadgets. This Momo challenge app over Youtube, Facebook, and Whatsapp are so freaky and still I do not know how it manages users to commit to its instructions in performing series of dangerous tasks. All I wanted now is to totally block this suicidal app from my gadgets.

    I have two kids and both uses gadgets as occasionally during pastime. Is there a way to block this suicidal Momo challenge? I would like to block the app on both gadgets like mobile phones, tablet, and our home computer. Please advise me on how to proceed with this.

    Thanks a lot.
