TIM launches 'SillyBully' app to prevent bullying in schools

Thursday 1 December 2016 | 10:56 CET | News
TIM (Telecom Italia) has teamed up with NetGroup to launch an app designed to prevent bullying in schools by encouraging students to film any wrongdoing. The app has an "SOS" function that automatically starts a video recording to catch perpetrators in the act if pupils feel they are being bullied. The anonymous live video will then be shared with the rest of the school, allowing teachers and fellow pupils to intervene if necessary. The exact location of the bullying can also be identified via the app's GPS function, said TIM in a statement.
