What is Snapchat?
Snapchat is a multimedia messaging app popular among teenagers and young adults. It allows users to send photos, videos, and messages (called “snaps”) that are only visible for a short time before disappearing. Snapchat also offers many filters and lenses that can be used to change the appearance of images and videos.
How is it beneficial for us?
One of the benefits of Snapchat is that it can be used to communicate with friends and family members who are not always available to talk in person. It is also an excellent way to share photos and videos without too much storage space on your device.

Should I let my 13-year-old son have Snapchat?
While Snapchat can be a fun and safe way for teenagers to communicate with friends, there is also the potential for misuse. For example, users can send snaps that are only visible for a short period, leading to problems if inappropriate content is shared.
It is essential to talk to your son about the responsible use of Snapchat (and all social media platforms). You may also want to consider setting up parental controls on his device so that you can monitor his activity and limit his access to certain features.
Where do hidden snaps go?
Hidden snaps are stored in a secret album that can only be accessed by entering a unique passcode. To access the hidden album, open the Snapchat app and swipe down from the main screen. Tap on the “Settings” gear icon and select “Manage”.
You will see the option to “Show Hidden Photos”. Enter your passcode and tap on the “OK” button to view the hidden album.
What is “my eyes only” on Snapchat?
Your eyes only on Snapchat is a way to keep your snaps safe and secure. Only you can view them, and no one else can access them. It is a great way to keep personal photos and videos private, and it’s also a great way to share sensitive information without worry.
To use this feature, go to the settings menu and enable it. Then, you’ll see a prompt to save it to your eyes when you take a snap. Once you do that, only you can view and access the snap. So if you’re worried about someone snooping on your snaps, this is a great way to keep them safe and secure.
