Be the best that you can be
Please be aware that Northumbria Police has asked us to ensure our parents are aware of the app 'Live Me'. This app is advertised as a child friendly app, however on the app it allows people to send live photos/videos to one another. As we are sure you will agree, this leaves children in a vulnerable position, and we would advise that our children should not use the app. Thank you for your support on this matter!

Snapchat location settings
Please be aware, that Northumbria Police are urging parent's, whose children use Snapchat, to check the location settings on the app. The photo and video messaging app has introduced the “Snap Map” feature which lets you see where your friends were when they sent their most recent snap. To ensure your child is kept safe, we urge you to disable any location settings on any social media platforms which they might be using. Thank you for your support.
