Snapchat, the story-sharing app, recently followed in the footsteps of other social media platforms by introducing tools for minors’ safety, similar to what Facebook, Instagram, Google, and YouTube have done. For the protection of teenagers, particularly females, the application has included parental control options.
In a recent interview, Snapchat’s CEO Evan Speigel revealed the company’s recent decision to the public. During the conference, he stressed the safety function, emphasising how it will allow parents to keep a check on their children’s actions while using the app, as well as adjust privacy settings.
“We haven’t given the product a name yet,” Speigel explained, “but it’s basically a family centre where young people and their parents can use Snapchat together.”
Snapchat respects its users’ privacy, as evidenced by the fact that the filters Snapchatters use when submitting their stories are off by default. This is a feature that no other social networking site offers to its members.
