Snapchat Warning – New feature that shows exact location, please be aware!

Snapchat have introduced an update that gives your exact location to all your ‘friends’. The new feature uses location trackers on phones to show where you are, giving your area, town, street and even the house that you are in. This could put you or your children at risk of stalking and bullying, so please make sure settings on your phones are changed to ‘ghost mode’.

In order to stay safe:

  • set your location to ‘ghost mode’
  • go to selfie mode on the camera
  • then zoom out
  • you will then get the option of changing who can see your location

BE SAFE!

If you need any help locating the settings or require any more information please contact us via the email address: safeguarding@freebroughacademy.org.
