Snapchat Bitmoji GPS Tracking
Snapchat has just had a huge update. It now shows where any of the user's (your child's) friends are at any time. It uses GPS to precisely pinpoint on a map where the users are, even changing to a car when they move quickly. Your child and other users are depicted by a Bitmoji.
Once you get onto the Snap Map it'll show you where your Snapchat friends are and what they are doing there if they share a picture.The update also allows you to upload Snaps to the "Our Story" so that anyone can see your picture.
Don't worry though - if you don't want your location shared then you can set up a "Ghost Mode" to keep it private.
It may sound like innocent fun but if your children have their location shared then people can potentially track them down.
The map shows exactly where they are which has raised serious concerns. While they would need to know your child's username, and for them to accept their friend request, to access this information it is often easy to find it online.
I urge you to check your child's settings, ensure they are set to 'ghost mode' if necessary.
