According to reports, Snapchat will bar the users from the app if are found posting anything violating the policy. It has launched a 'Snapchat Safety Center' for parents and teachers in this regard.

Meanwhile, Snapchat had recently launched a new feature which allows users to record video while playing music on their phones.

Users can play jams from iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud, or any other app while recording. The feature is available on iOS with the release of Snapchat version 9.2.0. However, android users will have to wait for a while before the feature will be made available to them.

Snapchat's immense popularity among young users made it one of the most closely watched social media companies in the world.

In 2014, Snapchat left Twitter behind to become the third most used social media app among the millennial group 18 to 34 year olds.

Almost a third of the 18 to 24-year-olds now use Snapchat, compared to 23.8 percent of Twitter app users, said the latest Mobile Metrix report by US internet analytics company comScore.
