Updated advice about Snapchat for safety using social media

SNAPCHAT – Dangers with new SNAP MAP


Snap Map lets people search for places such as schools and see videos and pictures posted by children inside. It allows others to locate exactly where you are, which building you are in and exact whereabouts within the building. This is obviously a concern if young people were to access this and share information that could be misused by others. The information below should help parents and students turn off the location sharing service, we strongly recommend this is done:

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

Any questions please refer to Mrs K Millar.
