There was a recent Snapchat update that allows you to pin point your friends location which means they can pinpoint your location as well.
I can literally zoom in on one of my snapchat friends and tell you what street they're currently on anywhere in the U.S.
A lot of our children have Snapchat, and as a parent it may be great for checking up on your kids. On the flip side, this could also be dangerous for your kids if they have someone as a Snapchat friend that they may not know well. Please check their settings and be sure your child has got this switched to "ghost mode".
Open your Snapchat and pinch the screen when you're on the Snapchat camera then you can turn on the ghost mode.
This post was intended for people with younger kids or maybe themselves who don't really know who is on their friend list. It's not hard to fake a snapchat and could easily put someone at risk when someone knows your every move. If you know all the people on your Snapchat and don't care if they know where you are, leave it on. If you have friends on Snapchat that you may not trust, turn it on Ghost Mode. If they know you are not home, you could potentially be at risk to be burglarized!
As a Police Officer, I'm skeptical when I hear things like this. I checked it out and sure enough it showed my girlfriends daughter being out of state and exactly she was at! I called her immediately and she turned it off.
Enjoy your weekend and as always, "please be safe"!
Chief of Police
