Snapchat’s Latest Feature Is Causing a Lot of Parents to Worry

I’m not a fan of Snapchat. Two of my children, my teens, both have it and it seems they’re always on there, snapping pictures of the side of their faces, using the various filters and now texting their friends using the app.

While I believe in my children having their privacy, I also believe in doing random ‘social media checks’ on their phones and devices to ensure they’re not doing anything online I don’t want them to do, and Snapchat and their disappearing messages makes it even harder to monitor.

If that weren’t enough to worry about, Snapchat has just enabled a new feature that every parent should know about.
