How To Set Up VSCO Parental Controls

VSCO is not a traditional social media app as there are no "likes" or "comments." However, parents should know that this photo-editing platform does not allow users to set their profiles to private. VSCO does not offer many parental control options. Parents should encourage their children to choose a non-identifying screen name to protect their privacy. Additionally, users can opt-out of including location data on the images they upload.

How to Opt-Out of Including Location Data

  1. Tap the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on your Profile icon.
  3. Tap Privacy.
  4. Toggle the sharing options off.
