9. Certain Settings Can Keep Them Safer

While your teen may not want you to have their password to go into their account directly, you can insist they have certain privacy settings turned on. Have your child turn off location services, so users don’t know where they are snapchatting from.

To prevent unwanted messages and bullying or harassment from users they don’t know, they can also block users and make it so only their friends on the app can send them snaps.
