Online Safety – App information

Dear Parents/Carers,

This is to inform you of an app that has come to light this week. The app is called Sweet Snap and there is an upgrade called Sweet snap lite.

This is a dangerous app to download. If downloaded it has been reported to also download additional software to your phone siltently. There have been instances of student’s photos being uploaded from the phone silently too. There are multiple adults accessing the chat and trying to talk to the chilldren in a sexual manner.

This has been reported to the Police but please can all parents/carers check their child’s phone and remove this app if they have it.

Please can you speak to your child about online safety.
