Safer Schools have made us aware of a new challenge circulating on popular social media platform, Tiktok. Known as the ‘Foopah’ challenge, it involves users attempting to trick TikTok’s moderation systems by flashing their bodies.

A play on the phrase ‘faux pas’ (an embarrassing public act), the trend encourages users to upload ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ nudity. This aims to get around the platform’s detection and moderation by being hidden in plain sight. Using screens, mirrors, and other reflective surfaces are just some of the ways people have taken part in the challenge.
