Snapchat to let parents monitor their kids


Snapchat is releasing a new supervision tool for parents as a part of their child safety efforts. The company said that the tool will mimic how parents and teenagers interact in the real world.

The ‘Family Center’ hub will allow parents and guardians to keep a check on teenagers and who they’re chatting with on Snapchat, without disclosing any content of the messages sent.

The guardian and child must accept the Family Center invites before the tool is activated for both parties.

The guardians will be able to view their child’s friends list and a list of accounts they’ve interacted with over the last seven days. They will also be able to report any accounts to Snap’s Trust and Safety Team.

In its blog post, the company said, “Our goal was to create a set of tools designed to reflect the dynamics of real-world relationships and foster collaboration and trust between parents and teens. The app will roll out more features for the Family Center in the upcoming weeks with additional control tools for parents and guardians.

The parental controls come after concerns grew over child safety on social media, once Facebook Whistleblower, France Haugen, revealed how Meta Platforms could harm young users.
