Snapchat has bought in a new tool so parents can see who their teenagers are talking to.
The tool is called Family Centre and will show parents their child’s friend list and when they last spoke to a friend over a week. However, it won’t allow parents to see the actual conversations.
In order for it to work, the child’s account needs to be linked up to their parent or guardian.
Like many other social media platforms, the photo and video messaging app requires users to be at least 13 years old to use it.
Snapchat said they worked with families to understand the needs of parents and teenagers.
