Kids love Snapchat for the feeling of secrecy it gives. You can send any photo without the fear to be compromised, as Snapchat deletes snaps every 10 seconds. But, the secrecy is often ruined when someone takes a screenshot of the image you send.
Frequently, teens and tweens are at risk of being judged by what they share on Snapchat. Parents need to know what dangers their child faces on social media apps. KidSecured allows you to view all the snaps your child sends and read their Snapchat messages to prevent overexposure.

We live in a world where the numbers of social media users grow every day. The vast majority of Snapchat and Instagram profiles aren't created by adults, but by tweens and teens. Snapchat stands out of the list of social media apps. It grasps large audience and is the most popular app among kids.

But as long as children use Snapchat, they are exposed to several risks. With all the popularity, Snapchat is the platform for bullying and harassment. That's why parents need to stay alert when their child creates a Snapchat profile. Learn what risks kids face on Snapchat and how to prevent them.

What Risks Does Snapchat Hide?

Before going into dangers of Snapchat, let’s briefly explain how it works. Snapchat is the mobile phone app. You need to install it on your device to start chatting with other users. After creating your profile, you can take a picture, edit it with Snapchat doodles.

You can choose a friend to send your image to and set a timer for maximum 10 seconds. Timer defines the time after which Snapchat will delete your photo. So, the user you sent a picture to can view it during a short time.

Not many parents use Snapchat to communicate. The target users of this app are tweens and teens. They use the Snapchat daily and face many online risks and dangers. Here are some of the main problems your child may confront while chatting on Snapchat.

  • Cyberbullying - It is easy to troll someone online because no one can ever notice and prevent it. That's why children feel uninterrupted to bully and mock the weaker ones. Cyberbullying often takes place in private messages or comments to photos. But sometimes it goes outside the online world and continues to exist in schools or other "offline" places.
  • Exclusivity - Exclusivity helps Snapchat children to limit individuals from seeing some posts/pictures. It gives the sense of secrecy. But the other side of exclusivity is that many excluded kids feel unwelcomed and isolated.
  • Overexposure - The vanishing images feature triggers another risk for kids. While they are sure their image will disappear soon, they aren't afraid to send explicit content to their friends. But since any smartphone allows us to take a screenshot, anyone can get a proof of the compromising images your child may send.
