Attention Snapchat users!

27th June 2017

You may have heard of the new update to the Snapchat app (Snap Map) whereby a user’s location is made publically available to their contacts and possibly other users of Snapchat depending on their privacy settings. 

To ensure that your, or your child's, location is not being broadcast you can open the Snapchat app, when in photo taking mode pinch the screen to open Snap Map, touch the settings cog and then  select “GHOST MODE” from the three available settings.  This will mean that your location will not be seen as location sharing will be turned off.
