If you had exceed the age of 21, you can only watch your own lifestage status and unable to perform interaction with other user. To communicate with their own social circles, lifestage users can select their own school on the app and once their school has exceed 20 users, they will get to interact with each other.


Concerning on its privacy, Lifestage comes with filter that can prevent parents, pervert and any other unwanted user barred from viewing their lifestage diaries. However, this does posses some risk from teenager as they could suffer from violence, bullying and pedophilia act from malicious individual.
