"Snapchat's new initiative for the safety of teenagers"
Snapchat has introduced a new safety feature for the safety of teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17. Under the new feature, the instant messaging app will not show the name of a completely unknown person to the teenagers to make friends. Only the names of people who are acquainted with more than one person on the friends list will be displayed to teenagers only. As a result, Snapchat's Friend Suggestions or Quick Ads section will not be able to find out the information of a completely unknown person. Adolescents will be safe online from strangers through this. However, if you know how many people are on the friends list, the information of strangers will be shown, Instagram did not say.
In addition to the safety feature, Instagram has plans to launch a new parental control tool for parents. When the tool is launched, it will be possible to know which people the children are exchanging messages with on Instagram. As a result, children will have more control over the present.
