Snapchat Warning

Warning for all parents regarding Snapchat

We would like to inform parents of a new function on the Snapchat app called Snapchat Map. It allows the user to pinpoint their exact location on a map which other users can then see. The BBC have issued an excellent article linked below which highlights some of the issues this new feature can bring. We suggest talking openly to your son or daughter about the risks that come with this new feature and other social media platforms.

We would also suggest visiting Vodaphones Digital Parenting website linked below which offers some excellent tips and advice on keeping your child safe online and with their mobile technology
