SNAPCHAT MAP UPDATE WARNING

SNAPCHAT MAP UPDATE WARNING

Security Concern about Snapchat Maps

It has come to the attention of the academy that Snapchat released an update which includes a map plotting all users of Snapchat. It can be zoomed in to, and locations of users clearly identified. These users don’t even need to be your friends for them to see your last location. People have access to see everyone.

It is our advice that all student users of Snapchat restrict their settings so that they are not visible on the location map to maintain their online security.

In order to remove a user from this feature you should go to your settings and enable Ghost Mode. You will also need to change your Avatar to Ghost Mode. To access the map you need to pinch the screen and this will give you the option to set yourself to private, not public.

We hope you have found this information useful and that you are able to help your child/children to remain safe if they are a Snapchat user.
