SAN ANGELO, TX — From 2014 to 2015 about 21 percent of students ages 12 to 18 experienced bullying. Now an app is claiming to help forgo those numbers.

Researchers at the university of Colorado rolled out Bullyalert an app which scans through your childs phone for words or patterns that point to aggressive online behavior.

Bullyalert doesn't just focus on specific words or abusive comments, once it flags a post it allows parents to share feedback so the program can learn what each parent considers cyberbullying.

The app also has the ability to learn. Researchers used real people to teach the program how to separate harmless online comments from abusive ones.

Currently the app only scans through the photo sharing social site: Instagram and is available for android devices exclusively.
