“Checking in”, sharing your current location, using geolocation services, and adding this kind of information to photo, video, or status, has become common practice on social networks. While it might seem harmless for children to use geolocation to let their followers know where they are, sharing their exact location with the whole world isn’t the safest idea. Without the right privacy settings in place, there’s no guarantee that this information will not fall into the hands of cyberbullies, stalkers, or even cybercrooks. To avoid inappropriate location sharing, teach your children to keep the GPS function on their mobile phone or tablet turned off. It should only be turned on when needed for directions, when using maps or when your child is sending their location to a friend they’re about to meet. However, even with GPS turned off, there are ways a child can unwittingly disclose their location. A photo from a recognizable location or even a description of the location can be enough to cause problems.
