Snapchat introduces parental controls

Snapchat introduces parental controls
News in brief

Snapchat has introduced its first set of parental controls after promising last October it was developing family safety features.

Parents or guardians will need to install Snapchat on their own device to use the new feature called Family Center, which links their account to their teens’ account through an opt-in invite process.

When this is linked, parents and guardians can see which accounts their children are having conversations with over the past seven days, rather than the content, as well as their friend list.

They can also report potential abuse to Snap’s Trust & Safety team to review.
