#SelfCare

A lot or a little?

Parents need to know that #Selfcare is an emotional companion app for teens and up that uses artificial intelligence to interact with users. The home screen is a bedroom, which is described as a safe space where users can explore different techniques and activities to promote calming, self-reflection, mindfulness, and general emotional wellbeing. There is potential for teens to share personal thoughts and feelings with the app. The privacy policy states that all user input is stored locally on the user's device or personal cloud. There are a few links to third-party sites such as the International Association for Suicide Prevention. The terms of service specify that #Selfcare was developed based on principles of adult psychology, and that users must be 16 years of age or older, but there's no content that's inappropriate for younger teens. There's a section that features Tarot cards, though it's not a central part of the app. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.
