Police and schools are issuing warnings to parents on social media after a popular WhatsApp challenge has resurfaced.

The "Momo game" or "Momo challenge" gained international recognition last summer and was initially considered a hoax, quickly becoming a widespread meme.

When children participate in the challenge, they contact a stranger concealing themself as "Momo" using a creepy image and communicate primarily through the Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp.

Momo encourages a participant to complete various tasks if they want to avoid being "cursed." Some of the tasks include self harm, which Momo asks the participant to provide photographic evidence in order to continue the game.

Ultimately, the game ends with Momo telling the participant to take their own life and record it for social media.
