Police and schools are issuing warnings to parents on social media after
a popular WhatsApp challenge has resurfaced in the United Kingdom. The
"Momo game" or "Momo challenge" gained international recognition last
summer and was initially considered a hoax
quickly becoming a widespread meme. In August 2018, law enforcement
investigated the influence of Momo on the death of a 12-year-old in
Argentina, worrying parents
globally to the potentially real dangers of the challenge.
