Police are warning parents about a Snapchat feature that they might not be aware of.

“There is a section that is hiding in plain sight: It is called ‘My Eyes Only,’ found in the camera roll,” Ridgefield Park police warned on Friday.

“This section is passcode protected and is where images/videos can be saved privately,” the department wrote. “Items in this section would be images/videos taken by your child with that specific device.”

To see if your child has activated this private area:

  • Open Snapchat (it should open to the camera);
  • Swipe the screen upward, which should take you to "Memories";
  • Find "My Eyes Only" at the top of the menu bar (it’s on the end, so you may need to swipe left);

“This menu item is only visible on the device if it has been activated,” the department advised.

Village police urged sharing this information “with any and all parents whose children use Snapchat.”
