Schools issue warnings over Snapchat Safety

 

 

 

 

 

 

Schools are raising concerns about online safety for children with particular reference to the new location and map features that Snapchat have introduced.

Many smartphone apps utilise location pinpointing as an everyday part of their service. Snapchat raises particular concern for parents due to the immediate nature in which children are revealing their location online.

The app could be used to track a person’s location in real-time. It is important for parents to keep their children fully informed of how to keep safe online and realise that this service is opt-in.

The information broadcast is only available to people on their user friend list but many allow access to people they don’t actually know. Not only does it provide real-time data of where a child may be, it can also be used to build up a picture of a user’s home, school and regular hangout spots.
