IMPORTANT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT (IPSA)
If someone tells you to play a game titled "Blue Whale Challenge": DO. NOT. DO. IT.
It's an app and when you get it, the people steal all your information because they can go through your phone and you cannot get rid of the app. If you attempt to leave or refuse the dares, you and your family are threatened. If you forget a day to do one of the challenges, people are sent after you (the same as when you refuse to do a challenge regularly).
Though most people already know this is messed up and won't do it, some people are vulnerable (such as teens who are already depressed/suicidal).
You cannot find the app on the App Store regularly because the game's link must be sent to you. It can be commonly found on a Russian website called VK, known as the Russian version of Facebook. However, please do not go looking for the link.
It has 50 challenges and these challenges vary in cutting yourself then taking pictures of the cuts and sending them to an admin, overcoming your fear, walking on the roof of buildings and standing there, waking at unsual times to watch videos and music sent to you by the admins, and the last challenge is to literally kill yourself.
The game was created in Russia and it's known to have already spread to the United Kingdom (England/Britian), North America (USA & Canada), South America (Mexico), and France.
There are already reports of more than 130 dead teengers in Russia and this game is responsible for the deaths. There are more deaths in other countries.
If you search images of "Blue Whale Challenge" you get pictures of people's cuts. Please do not search images.
We understand you may be curious, but this is a real and serious game responsible for the death of over 100 teens. Please act responsible on the internet. If someone sends you a message asking if you want to play a game, please report and block the account immediately. Reporting them to police is always a good option.
Please do not search the title "Blue Whale Challenge" unprotected, either. The admins can possibly find your IP this way.
