Keeping our children safe on line is a constant battle as they are surrounded by technology that is so sophisticated: smart phones, laptops, ipads, gaming consoles etc. Students are taught how to stay safe at school and the vast majority heed the advice. Vodafone has an annual “Digital Parenting “ magazine which is filled with advice and information for parents so that they can try and keep up with the technological trends that their children are involved in. You can access these magazines by following this link:


Last week SnapChat, used regularly by many children and young people, launched a new feature. SnapMaps allows users to see the location of their contacts. This feature allows others to accurately pinpoint where you are. There are three possible privacy settings:

  • Ghost mode, where only you can see your position;
  • My Friends mode, where any contact can see your location; and
  • Select Friends mode, just those who you choose can see you

ChildNet have posted a thorough explanation of SnapMaps and how to ensure users stay safe. Well worth a read to share with anyone you know who uses the app.
