This article provides an appraisal of the reaction of stakeholders in child online safeguarding to the Momo challenge which hit the headlines in late February 2019. It calls for a balanced response to such phenomena, in particular from the media, based on a deeper consideration of what unmeasured awareness raising of mythical phenomena might do to the children they claim to wish to protect.
