WARNING: Teens taking Blue Whale Challenge, a ‘game’ ending in suicide

Across the United States parents are being warned about the Blue Whale Challenge - a “game” teenagers are playing that ends in suicide.

The 50-day challenge asks participants to complete tasks that range from listening to music to causing self-harm, WKRG reported.

To “win,” the person is supposed to commit suicide.

The app reportedly “hacks into personal information that administrators use to threaten the player’s family or releases personal information until the player kills themselves,” WKRG reported.

The Blue Whale Challenge app has since been removed from Apple’s iOS store and Google Play store.
