SnapChat Update - Important Parent Information

Important Parent Information

The latest update of SnapChat now tracks your child’s location, and marks their location on a map for other users to see. We feel its important that we make you aware of this and advise you of the action you may wish to take.

 

To turn off this function, go into your child’s SnapChat account, and follow the instructions below:

 

  1. Open the app and immediately scroll down.
  2. Click on the settings button in the top right hand corner.
  3. Scroll down and under the ‘Who can…’ section, click on ‘See my location’.
  4. Turn on ‘Ghost Mode’.
