During our seminars, interviews and surveys we’ve come across several questions about internet safety.
See if your questions are listed below, if it’s not, send us an e-mail and we will be happy to answer it.
The first rule is to be aware and proud of the photos you are taking. Snapchat, besides being a fun and cool app, it’s not 100% safe. The photos can be screenshot and there are even hacks (different apps) to save the snap without the sender being notified. Also, someone can take a picture of your snap with a second phone. So remember to be sure you are taking safe and positive photos.
Yes, selfies are great, as long as you are proud of what you send.
You should make sure you are proud of your snapchat selfies as they can be screenshot and there are hacks to save the picture without the sender being notified (Using another phone to take a picture of a snapchat message).

Any selfie posted online or sent via devices should be posted/ sent with care- no identifying information should be posted or sent. This is because when you send a selfie you lose control of the picture.
