You need to go into your privacy setting and change it to only ''my friends'' in ''view my story'' and ''contact me''. This makes your Snapchat a lot safer; but that isn't the only bad thing about it!
This ''friends'' thing... on Snapchat, turn on Ghost mode, this is an extremely unsafe feature. It shouldn't be used as Preston Police have already said... Why Snapchat made this is anyone's guess. =)
There are all different types of filters on Snapchat, but just don't send any type of snap to anyone that you do not know. This is unsafe and you won't know what on earth they will do with the picture
There are loads of reports of people feeling unsafe because of what happens on the messenger. An emoji popping up on the side of your chats... This is unsafe - just uninstall the app and don't use it!
I had to download the app to show you this as I didn't have the app before. I made at teaser account and within minutes, I had requests from people that I don't know, this is unsafe too. My profile =(
