Snapchat update

Just to make parents aware that a recent update within the app, Snapchat means that your young person's location can now be seen by other users. Snap Map allows users to see a 'friends' location on a virtual map. If your young person has shared a post publicly this will be shared with all Snapchat users. Please ensure the security settings on your young person's device are upto date and at the highest setting.

How to switch off Snap Map location sharing

  • When in photo-taking mode, pinch the screen to open Snap Map
  • Touch the settings cog in the top right corner of the screen
  • Tap "Ghost Mode" to switch off location sharing
  • Photos and videos posted to Snapchat's public 'Our Story' will still be discoverable on the map
