IMPORTANT GUIDANCE FOR PARENTS
Snapchat has launched a new update for their social media app with a new ‘Meet Up’ feature. This feature located within the SnapMap section of the app allows for people to view your location and get precise directions to you via Google or Apple maps without any warning or notifications.
Guidance for parents would be to check your children’s accounts.
- Ensure they only have friends added to their account
- Their account is restricted with the correct settings
- Their snap map location is set to ‘Only Me’
And you regularly check your children’s phone to ensure all of the above are being stuck too.
Please share with families, friends, schools and the wider community.

Sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like. If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault.
