An app used by children is labeled by experts as a & # 39; pedophile paradise & # 39; after children of nine had already received sexual messages.

Australian parents have been warned by child safety experts to follow children who use the & # 39; Likee & # 39; , an online platform in Singapore that allows users to create and edit their own video & # 39; s and post them to a global audience.

The app automatically displays the geographic location of the user with each message and the search functionality allows users to filter the results by gender.

Users also cannot set their profile to private, which means that strangers can post dirty comments aimed at young children – including asking them to raise their shirt & # 39; and tell them that they are & # 39; damn sexy & # 39; to be.

Although the app is listed as suitable for people over 17 years old, there is no verification process upon registration.

A 10-year-old Likee user in the UK was misled to send nude photos to a man who claimed to be a teenager earlier this year.

The man threatened the girl and said he would find her and get her from her mummy & # 39; if she failed to send photos according to the Daily star.

Child psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg said the app was a & # 39; concern & # 39; used to be.

& # 39; This is a paradise for pedophiles. Predators aren't stupid, they know exactly where the kids are and how to find them, "he told Daily telegram.

Parents' responses to the US-based review site Common Sense showed that children of all ages have problems with the app.

One called Likee a & # 39; pedo playground & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I just spent the last five hours at the police station after I discovered that my underage child had been harassed by some strange pervert and manipulated to take nude photos of herself and send them to him. She is 10, & # 39; said a mother.

& # 39; (It) is a danger for the children! There are adult people trying to take advantage of our children! I am disgusted! I cannot delete my daughter's account! I hope this app is destroyed because it is full of child abusers (and) abductors. & # 39;
