If your child is under the age of 13 and has created a Snapchat account, the account must be deleted in accordance with our Terms of Use (www. snapchat.com/terms) by going to www.snapchat.com/a/delete_account and entering the child’s username and password.

If Snapchat obtains knowledge that a user is under the age of 13, it is our policy to terminate the account and delete any personal information associated with that account.

WHAT IS “SNAPKIDZ”?

New users who enter a date of birth indicating that they are under 13 may be given access to “SnapKidz,” which does not include messaging capabilities or the collection or transmission of personal information. A SnapKidz user’s email address, password and age are only stored locally on the user’s mobile device and are not transmitted to Snapchat, except for certain device information ┬áneeded to operate and support the application. SnapKidz allows younger users to take photos and videos, add captions and drawings, and save them locally on their mobile device. However, they are not able to create a Snapchat account and cannot add friends or send and receive messages.
