Snapchat app causing concern

Parents might want to check their children's phone or tablet for an app called Snapchat.

It is a way to share pictures and videos that disappear 10 seconds later. Because they are almost instantly erased, it has become a hot bed for sexting.

The big problem with this app is those on the receiving end are not always fellow teens or even friends.

A caution to Snapchatters, the person you send the picture to can save it forever by taking a screenshot of it before it disappears. Snapchat notifies you if they do but by then, it is too late.
