Snapchat is among the most influential social platforms in the U.S. today, and its business model of allowing users to create short-lived and always disappearing content means parents often have no way of keeping tabs on what their kids are seeing.

The platform was created in 2011 and allows users to to share photos and videos between one to 10 seconds long, either to other users or on “stories” that last 24 hours for others to view. More than 5 billion photos and videos are shared every day on average, according to data shared by the company’s investor relations department.
