Social media checklists

Privacy features and parental controls

These checklists provide tips and guidance on how to use safety and privacy features on a range of social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.

They have been produced by our Professionals Online Safety Helpline , run by UK Safer Internet Centre partner SWGfL, in collaboration with each of these social media providers and are updated regularly to reflect latest changes to safety features.

The latest updates to these checklists were made in late 2018 and in 2019 and all information was correct at the time of writing. As these sites are continually updating and changing you can also take a look on the reporting hub of each site or visit our platform for reporting harmful content online at

You can download the latest electronic versions here or order hard copies from the online store of SWGfL. For any queries or larger order quotes, please email us at
