Momo Challenge is a new Blue Whale Game, fear sparks internet


Yesteryear, Blue Whale Game challenge grabbed headlines for pushing teens to commit suicide through a series of instructions from a stranger over the internet.

A similar challenge is threatening the internet and reportedly being linked to the death of 12 year old teen in Argentina. ‘Momo Challenge’ is a terrifying game getting viral on social media and parents are being warned to keep an eye over their child’s social media activities.

Apparently, a sculpture’s image being spread on Whatsapp along with a series of challenges that threatens the lives of the receivers. The challenges come in the form of extreme behaviours, similar to ones seen during the Blue Whale challenge.

According to Metro News, Momo is a social media account on platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook, and YouTube. It uses artwork that shows a woman with scary features. Much like the ‘Blue Whale’, the Momo Challenge also pushes participants to follow certain “orders” after they are asked to communicate with an unknown number. If players refuse to abide, they are threatened with violent images.

YouTuber ReignBot told The Sun that Momo is connected to at least three phone numbers in Japan, Colombia and Mexico. He added that someone contacting these numbers is likely “to be met with insults, implications that this person knows your personal information and most notably disturbing images I would not be able to show you here”.
