Cyber Expert Jordan from ySafe alerted us to this change and recommends that you turn off this function.
To do this, go into your child's SnapChat account, and follow the instructions below:
1. Open the app and immediately scroll down.
2. Click on the settings button (the gear icon) in the top right hand corner.
3. Scroll down and under the 'Who can..' section, click on 'See my location'
4. Turn on 'Ghost Mode'
