Last week SnapChat, used regularly by many children and young people, launched a new feature. SnapMaps allows users to see the location of their contacts. This feature allows others to accurately pinpoint where you are. Remember a child sharing their location can be a very risky thing to do.

There are three possible privacy settings on SnapChat:

  1. Ghost mode, where only you can see your position
  2. My Friends mode, where any contact can see your location
  3. Select Friends mode, just those who you choose can see you

ChildNet have posted a thorough explanation of SnapMaps and how to ensure users stay safe, please click on the link for further information Introducing SnapMaps (ChildNet).
