SNAPCHAT

Advice from North Yorkshire Police

Dear Parent/Guardian

Whilst we would discourage any child of primary age from using Snapchat, we believe the following advice is of vital importance.

Officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Teams within North Yorkshire Police would like to make parents aware of the following update that has released on Snapchat. If your children have the Snapchat app and GPS on their phone please take a look at this.It seems with the new update there is a new feature on Snapchat. When you open the app place two fingers on the screen and drag them together 'pinch' just like when zooming out on an interactive map. This will then open the new feature. It shows your location with near exact accuracy and can be only a couple of metres wrong. This means people can see exactly where you are at any time. To turn this off there is a Settings button in the top right and you can turn the feature to ghost mode. This will hide your location from others. Also turn off the phones GPS as an extra level of security. If you need any help please contact your phone provider or visit an O2 store and speak to one of their gurus. This is a free service and regardless of the network you are on. The gurus can help with any technical questions and security advice. Please remind your children to only have 'friends' on these apps who they actually know, this will keep them safer online.While we have focused this on keeping children safe. Please be mindful features like this could be used by criminals, knowing when you're out or even where you live. Always be mindful of posting pictures with cycles and such which would show people exactly where you store them.

Thank you.
