ONLINE SAFETY UPDATE

SNAPCHAT FEATURE IS POSING RISK TO YOUNGSTERS ONLINE AND LEAVING THEM EXPOSED TO PREDATORS.

 

SNAPCHAT HAS BEEN RECENTLY UPDATED & HAS BECOME MORE DANGEROUS BY ALLOWING USERS

TO SHARE THEIR LOCATION ON A WORLD MAP.

THIS IS A CONCERN AS THE UPDATE AUTOMATICALLY SHARES YOUR LOCATION UNLESS USERS SWITCH TO ‘GHOST MODE’

 

YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY ACTIVATE THIS – SETTINGS ‘SEE MY LOCATION’ AND ENABLE ‘GHOST MODE’.

 

 

WITH THIS NEW TRACKER YOU CAN VIEW THE EXACT LOCATION OF YOUR FRIENDS. IT CAN GIVE YOU THE AREA, TOWN, AND STREET AND IF YOU ZOOM IN ENOUGH, IT SHOWS THE HOUSE ON THE STREET LAYOUT.

 

THIS IS A SAFEGUARDING ISSUE

AND WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU DISCUSS THE DANGERS OF THIS WITH YOUR CHILD.

 

If you find anything of concern please report it to the police directly. Any queries please contact me. Clare
