Snapchat remains one of the most popular apps used by children and young people. 

Snapchat has a Family Centre feature and the company has added a couple of updates recently which parents may find useful, this includes seeing which friends their children have been sending messages to and a complete list of their child's existing friends.

There is a full breakdown of the Snapchat safety features on the family centre HERE
