 Stay Fresh and Safe: Gen Z Tips for Navigating the Social Media Jungle! 

Hello Yubo Fam! Welcome aboard the Yubo adventure, where safety, diversity, and fun come together to create an incredible online experience. With over 80 million users worldwide, Yubo is not just an app; it's where the fun comes to life! Ready to slay the social media game while keeping it 100% secure? 

Two Paths to Friendship: Swipe and Livestream

At Yubo, making new friends is as easy as swiping right! Add tags, emojis, and media to your profile to showcase who you truly are. Swipe right on those you want to chat with, and if the feeling is mutual, the conversation begins!

And of course, there are livestreams! Explore live streams based on your interests, language, or title. You can be a viewer or even become a streamer with your own virtual circle of friends.

Location on Yubo

At Yubo, your privacy is paramount. Remember to never share personal details like phone numbers or addresses. Check out our detailed guide below. Concerning location, we respect your choice. When you download the app, decide if you want to share your location or not. Users can opt for sharing only their country or city, making connections with friends. Your safety is our priority at Yubo.


Yubo places security at the core of its commitment. Our recent collaboration with Yoti has implemented an advanced age verification process, ensuring that 100% of our users are verified. One more step towards protection against fake profiles and harmful behaviors.

Protecting Minors

The safety of young users is paramount at Yubo. Strict guidelines, a team of 24/7 security specialists, and real-time interventions ensure a safe environment. Our proactive approach also includes an Independent Safety Advisory Board and partnerships with NGOs and digital security authorities.

Respect and Inclusion: Our Principles

At Yubo, we believe in inclusion and respect. Our Community Guidelines set the standards for promoting a friendly environment. From age verification to protection against discrimination, our commitment to human rights guides our actions every day.

Enforcing Our Guidelines

Violation of our Community Guidelines results in appropriate actions. From warnings to temporary or permanent suspension, we act based on the severity of the violation. Our transparency report provides a detailed insight into the actions taken to enforce these rules.
