Proceed with caution
BeReal is a social media platform that asks users to post unfiltered photos of themselves once per day. All users receive a once-daily notification and have a two-minute window to capture a photo of where they are and what they’re doing at the moment. The platform is designed to encourage people to be more authentic online.

In-depth breakdown

Minimum Age Requirement
Messaging Capabillities
There is no private messaging on BeReal. Comments can only be posted by a user’s approved friends.
Location Sharing
BeReal contains a “Maps” feature that allows users to share their location with friends.
Parental Controls
None. Apple and Android parental controls can be used at the device level.
BeReal does not allow users to see others’ photos unless they have posted one themselves for the day. It also does not have followers or likes. Some experts have praised the app for those features, its focus on authenticity, and a format that encourages screen-time moderation instead of endless scrolling. As with any social media platform, some content may not be appropriate for users of all ages.
