Snapchat is one of the most popular social media platforms on the market, and that can be an issue for concerned parents. Because of this, the company has a way for parents to feel a bit safer. Snapchat launched Family Center, a way for parents to see who their kids are interacting with.
Social media is fun for a lot of people, but it can be a nightmare when you’re a parent. Any form of social media like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram is just a free ticket for any number of strangers to have contact with your children. This is why many parents restrict their children from having social media accounts altogether.
Snapchat has Family Center, a place for parents to keep an eye on what’s going on
It’s a sad fact that many unsavory characters make contact with underaged children. Because of this, Snapchat has a solution that may help the situation just a bit.
According to Snap, the company that owns Snapchat, the social media platform launched a new tool for parents to keep an eye on their kids’ accounts. It’s called Family Center, and it lets you see who your kids are messaging.
When you open up the Family Center, you’ll see a list of the contacts your kids have been messaging. You’ll see their name and when they last contacted each other. While you can see this information, you won’t be able to see the content of those conversations.
This lets parents get an idea of who’s messaging their kids without totally barging in. However, we know that there are some parents who would like to see the contents of the messages.
The feature launched today, so it should be rolling out to you soon. Snapchat Family Center seems pretty bare-bones now, but the company also said that more features will be coming out over the following months. If you’re a parent whose child is on Snapchat, then you’ll want to keep an eye out for those upcoming features.
