The Williamson County Sheriff is warning parents of an app that could leave their children vulnerable. 

Sheriff Robert Chody warned parents of an app called "Live.Me" which is a live broadcasting app. 

"Pedophiles have a virtual open window to your child's bedroom," said Chody. 

The sheriff also discussed the use of other apps, such as Kik, a texting app; Monkey, a live chat app; WeChat, a messaging app; and GroupMe, a group chat app.
