Moky appears to be an updated version of Monkey for IOS. Monkey is still available for Android devices. Please read about Monkey as Moky functions similarly.
Moky or Monkey is a random video chatting app that encourages kids to chat with strangers. It uses video chatting (like Facetime or Skype) combined with a random social media meeting place. Basically, you don’t know who the app will connect you with. This is very similar to Chatroulette and Omegle. This app could be a potential place for predators to groom kids. There are reviews at Common Sense Media of adult men masturbating on this app.
My #1 recommendation is not allowing anyone under the age of 18 years old to use the app.
