The popular social media platform Snapchat is reportedly planning to introduce a new parental control feature called Family Center, which will allow parents to see who their children’s friends are in the app.

The new feature will also allow parents to see who they’ve been texting with in the past seven days or more, TechCrunch reports.

“Snap is one of the latest major technology social platforms to meet the need for parental monitoring tools, although its application is widely used by younger users,” the report said.

The Snapchat app now reaches more than 75% of 13-34 year olds in more than 20 countries, and 80% of Gen Z’s population has watched at least one of its Snap Original shows.

The new feature can be useful for parents because, unlike many social networks, Snapchat’s friend lists are not public.

This new feature also allows parents to help their teens report violence and bullying.

The Parental Controls feature works by allowing parents to invite their teenagers (or teens) to the new Family Center in the app to begin monitoring, as outlined in the report.

The recipient of this invitation has the opportunity to accept or reject the invitation.
