Snapchat reportedly plans to introduce a new parental control feature called “Family Center” that 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 have spoken to over the past seven days or more, TechCrunch reports. “Snap is one of the latest Big Tech social platforms to meet the need for parental control tools, although its application is widely used by young users,” the report said.
The Snapchat app now covers more than 75 percent of people ages 13 to 34 in more than 20 countries, and 80 percent of the Generation Z population watched at least one of its Snap Original shows.

The new feature can be useful for parents because, unlike many social networks, Snapchat friend lists are not publicly available.
This new feature also allows parents to help their teens report violence and harassment.
The parental control feature works by allowing parents to invite their teens (or teens) to the new “Family Center” in the program to begin monitoring, as mentioned in the report.
