Snap Map, an OPTIONAL feature of Snap Chat, allows users to post public ‘snaps’ on a public interactive map. Snap Map allows people to search for places and view the images posted in that location.
Please take a moment to think about the consequences of children posting at school or on the way to school or out with friends.
Users are also able to locate their “friends” on a map, that is accurate enough to determine where people live.
Switching Off Snap Map
- When in photo-taking mode, pinch the screen to open Snap Map.
- Touch the settings cog in the top right corner of the screen.
- Tap “Ghost Mode” to switch off location sharing.
- Photos and videos posted to Snapchat’s public ‘Our Story’ will still be discoverable on the map.
