National Online Safety have produced a free guide for parents about Snapchat, the social media app which has been flagged by the NSPCC & the Humberside Police as being one of the main sources of online grooming incidents over the past 6 months in the region, with the youngest victim recorded just seven years old. The guide informs parents about the dangers associated with the social media platform and how they can reduce the associated risks.
