While many adults know to shut down location services on many of the apps they use, teens and tweens don’t always pay attention to things like this.

Childnet Internation released a statement about the importance of speaking to your kids about things like this and why it’s important kids don’t enable apps like Snap Maps.

“It is important to be careful about who you share your location with, as it can allow people to build up a picture of where you live, go to school and spend your time,” the statement says. “Given how specific this new feature is on Snapchat — giving your location to a precise pinpoint on a map — we would encourage users not to share their location, especially with people they don’t know in person.”
