Snapchat Map - is it safe?

Thursday July 6 2017

SCHOOLS are warning parents that the new Snapchat location feature 'Snap Map' could put their children at risk.

Snap Map lets users share their exact location with people on their "friends" list in real time - but schools say that the map raises "serious safeguarding concerns" because children could be tracked on the map.

But Snap, the company behind Snapchat, says the feature is opt-in and can be switched off at any time.

Do you let your children use Snapchat? Are you concerned over the new feature? Leave your comments below.
