Hence Youtube has decided to ban on such challenges and pranks. No matter how exciting and wonderful the challenge is, if it ignites the safety of the children, the social media boards will not approve it. Hence the Youtube has decided to ban all of the pranks that fall into this category.
Very recent a popular movie has inspired people starting a new challenge The “Birdbox challenge”. Here the app maker will ask people to get blindfolded and will give them new challenges to fulfill.

They give untimely challenges. Suppose you are driving and at the same time they are sending you challenges. You have to complete the challenge within some time. No matter how tough the condition you are in, you have to complete the challenge. So the expected thing can happen at any point! Accidents can happen and you cannot save yourself from this thing. In USA every day lots of accidents take place due to these online pranks. Children are given licenses at an early age and hence these accidents happen with the children in the first place.
Children are always targeted the most in such cases. Actually, children are easily gullible. The thinking and analytical ability of children are less than others and hence they are easily targeted. If these pranks are given to an adult, they can analyze the whole thing at the very first place. They will never fall for the pranks and hence they will never go for such games. For this reason, such apps and games target children at the very first place. Lots of children every year die due to such reasons. Children are targeted and hence all such pranks are banned.
