Safety tips when using instagram


 Keeping safe online tip – Did you know?

When signing up to Facebook users are asked their age.  If they enter 13-18 their account is automatically set to semi-private (friends only).

When signing up to Instagram, users are not asked their age, and their account is set, by default, to public.

If young people are using Instagram, they need to find the settings and set their profile to private (“followers only”) and know who their followers are.

Instagram has a nifty feature which pins your photos to a “photo map”.  When you post a photo others can see where you were/are on a map. You might want to think about this and perhaps make sure the “Add to your photo map” option is switched off. Please see link here
