Snapchat has updated its location sharing information and experts have said this could be dangerous for young people.
This week Snapchat announced its update called Snap Map which allows users to broadcast their location to their friends on the app.
Netsafe NZ have issued a warning saying that the new location sharing update on the popular social media app Snapchat can be dangerous for young people.
Netsafe is a group set up to identify and informs New Zealanders about Internet Safety.
Snapchat say that users can opt to turn off sharing their location and go in ghost mode.
But Netsafe said that the update still posed a risk for young people as it enables people to find the exact location of others users.
The minimum age for Snapchat users is 13 years old.
