Snapchat has introduced a map feature that lets users track other people’s location in real time, raising safety concerns among parents.

Snap Maps, launched this week, plots users and their snaps onto a map so friends and other Snapchatters can see where they are and what they are doing.

How to switch off Snap Map location sharing

  • When in photo-taking mode, pinch the screen to open Snap Map

  • Touch the settings cog in the top right corner of the screen

  • Tap "Ghost Mode" to switch off location sharing

  • Photos and videos posted to Snapchat's public 'Our Story' will still be discoverable on the map
