We are aware that some of our children have Snapchat accounts. Last week Snapchat released a new feature which displays the location of the Snapchat post. This new feature raises huge concerns for the safety of children as it posts the exact location of the post including the address of houses/buildings where the Snapchat was posted from. This feature can be disabled by accessing the settings for the Snapchat app. We would like to encourage parents to check the settings of their child’s Snapchat account to ensure that they stay safe online.
We would also like to remind parents that the minimum age for a Snapchat user account should be 13 years old.
