Advice to parents of Snapchat users

Snapchat, a media-sharing and chat app, is all about spontaneity. The text, photos and videos you send disappear seconds after they’re viewed – you get to decide how long your friends have to view them. What users love about that is they can share a moment that’s digital footprint-free – they don’t have to think about how their photos, videos or comments make them look to some unknown audience somewhere out in the future. Snapchat users feel like they don’t have to worry if they’re having a bad hair day. However, as we’ll show you below, there are ways to save what you share. So no one should develop a false sense of security.

Snapchat runs on Android phones and tablets and on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, which are sometimes used by young children.
