SAFEGUARDING – Police issue safety warning over Snapchat

Police forces have raised child safety concerns about a new Snapchat feature that reveals users’ locations amid fears it could be used for stalking.

Parents have been warned to turn off “Snap Maps” on their children’s phones after Snapchat, which is wildly popular among teenagers, introduced the location-sharing mode this week.

The feature displays a map of nearby friends, showing their latest location gathered using a smartphone’s GPS sensor.  Users of the app can also search for locations such as individual schools, with the app displaying public photos and videos sent by students.
