The risk of making kid using a finance app
They cannot control and plan for their finance.
There is no real cash, so the kids may not aware of the amount of money they spend.
Kid will not think carefully before making a transaction
Their information may have a huge risk to be leaked because some of them do not aware of the privacy
How to minimize the risk
The biggest goal is to let kids understand the concept of banking activities, know what they can do with money, so
The app should not use a real currency, some virtual currency with some kind of gamificate concept will be better.
Let them learn from mistakes, kid will make wrong actions, but it would be okay if parents is the person to control all the things behind.
In the assumption, kids should not use this app alone, they need the support of parents, because despite of the tutorials in the app, parents are always the best instructor for the children.
