Prince William backs anti-cyberbullying app which intervenes when children try to send nasty messages

He has also called it a “practical, powerful tool to help children use their smartphones and social media with confidence and with safety”, in a world where parents are increasingly concerned about social media use.

“I am worried though that our technology companies still have a great deal to learn about the responsibilities that come with their significant power,” he added. 
“I am very concerned though that on every challenge they face – fake news, extremism, polarisation, hate speech, trolling, mental health, privacy, and bullying – our tech leaders seem to be on the back foot.”
