Snapchat has recently released a new update with a feature called 'Snap Maps.' This feature allows other users from a person's Friend List to see their location, including exact street names and street layout, at any given time, along with things such as whether they are listening to music and when they last opened the app. There is an option as a part of this feature called 'Ghost Mode' which allows users to turn this feature off, however there is still a major concern about whether people can easily find this option. With 'Snap Maps' there is also concern that this could lead to kidnapping, stalking, and bullying incidents.
We, the undersigned, call upon Snapchat to remove the 'Snap Maps' feature from the app in the next update.
The Put an End to 'Snap Maps' petition to Snapchat was written by Emily Budhram and is in the category Youth at GoPetition.
