To add your teen to Family Centre:
- Download Snapchat and register for an account. Make sure you have the latest version of the app.
- Add your teen as a friend on Snapchat by searching for their username.
- Open Family Centre (find how to access it here), and go through the set-up process.
- When you get to the invitation screen, select your teen’s name (either by selecting from a list of your recent friends or by searching for them), and tap ‘Send Invitation.’ Sent invitations will appear to your teen as a new direct Chat message from you. Your teen must view and accept the invitation to opt-in to Family Centre. Just like a regular conversation on Snapchat, the message will delete either immediately or 24 hours after your teen has viewed it, depending on their settings. So be sure to remind them in person to accept the invite!
