How to Stay Safe on Snapchat

Dangers lurk on social media. We all want to avoid them anyhow, but we don’t know how? Go through this article to make your Snapchat account safe and private.

Here are some safety guidelines

  1. Don’t add anonymous people to your friend’s list

At times, Snapchat will suggest you some other users based on mutual friendships among them and some of your friends. Although Snapchat is a very personal experience, you must always rely on people whom you can trust.

  • Simply block all the strangers who want to contact you

If someone is repeatedly trying to contact you, then you can count them as the harasser. It is good to block them simply. Users shouldn’t feel bad for blocking those people. It is your wish if you want to talk or not. Block them as soon as possible before they start sending you unwanted images.

  • Try not to send inappropriate snaps.

You must be thinking that that particular person is your friend and you trust them. Just make sure that they don’t post your snap anywhere else. It is Ok think critically when it comes to safety.

  • Do not publicize your location

Users may find it really tempting to add an image with a geofilter to the public story. You can use filters that won’t tell about the location.

A similar notion applies to snaps of the addresses and the license plates. When you capture a picture of the pretty house, take help of the pen option and censor the address, cars etc. using a colour pen. Choice of colour depends upon you.

  • Do not provide sensitive information in Snapchat

You are very sure that you can entirely rely upon that friend of yours whom you have been sending information. Keep in mind that your snaps are not going to be personal once you press the send button. You can submit your image in person to ensure privacy.

  • Try to be honest regarding your age

Obviously, it is very personal. If you choose to show yourself elder than your actual age, then you may end up harming yourself. If you are 12 years old and you are showing yourself as 20, then it can be really harmful. It is good not to share your age and sensitive information on social media. It can be done if you know everyone in actual life and have 100% – faith in them.
