Snapchat update

The latest update of SnapChat now tracks your child's location, and marks their location on a map for other users to see.

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'

If the settings aren't visible, you may need to pinch the screen when the camera is open in the app to access it.

It's absolutely imperative to do on your child's account as soon as possible. Please implement these changes immediately and spread the word to other parents to warn them about this danger.
