Snapchat update

posted 25 Jun 2017, 06:34 by Nat Admin   [ updated 25 Jun 2017, 06:43 ]

There has been an update to snapchat which shows the location of the person using it. We are concerned about this and would suggest that if students are using this app set your privacy setting to 'ghost mode' which does not allow other to see where you are. You can read more about it in this article in the Telegraph newspaper.
