The picture-sharing app's updated terms of service have gone into effect. Here's what parents should know:
Privacy: The only information required when signing up for Instagram is an email address and desired username. By default, anyone can view the photos uploaded to Instagram. Privacy settings can be changed by going to account settings and tapping the gear icon on the Instagram page. Switch "Photos Are Private" to "on." The company, now owned by Facebook, changed user agreements so it can more easily share data with Facebook by moving all of Instagram's data over to Facebook's servers, according to the company.
Geotagging: Instagram turns geotagging (putting your location on the photo) off by default, but it's easy to accidentally turn it on. When uploading a photo, be sure to avoid tapping the "geotagging" button.
