By turning on the "Restrict Sensitive Material" filter in Snapchat's Family Center, parents can enable the option.

The parent company of Snapchat, Snap, has launched a new “Content Limits” feature for Family Center that will enable parents to restrict the kinds of content their teenagers access through the app.

A new Content Controls feature has been implemented by the firm to assist parents tailor their adolescents’ unique experiences and needs. Last year, the company launched “Family Center” on Snapchat to give parents a means to learn more about who their teens are chatting with on the app.

“Parents will be able to filter out Stories from publishers or authors that may have been classified as sensitive or provocative thanks to our new content controls in Family Center. Parents must have an established Family Center set up with their kid in order to use Content Limits “explained Snapchat in a blog post.

By turning on the “Restrict Sensitive Material” filter in Snapchat’s Family Center, parents can enable the option.

Once activated, teens won’t be able to access the restricted material on Stories or Spotlight, the platform’s short-form video area.

As this is going on, Snap has unveiled its brand-new GPT-enabled artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot for Snapchat.

According to a business blog post, the “My AI” chatbot will be made accessible to Snapchat+ subscribers this week as an experimental feature.

The app is designed for mobile devices and is particularly popular among younger users. In addition to standard messaging and photo-sharing features, Snapchat also offers various filters, lenses, and other interactive tools that allow users to add fun effects to their content. The app also includes a “Snap Map” feature that lets users see where their friends are located in real-time, as well as various other features for connecting with friends and discovering new content.
