A very large portion of snapchat users are still in school, whether it be in middle school, high school, or college. For some students snapchat has become a distraction for students in the classroom. Instead of focusing on work, students will spend their educational time sending snaps to friends either at their school or at other schools. Sometimes the app is used by bullies who try to make fun of other students behind their backs. This is never a good thing to see from students. Some schools have terrible mobile data service which forces students to use the school system wifi. Most schools have blocked social media outlets such as Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook in an attempt to limit distractions at school. However, there is a way to use snapchat on school wifi, even if it is blocked.
How to Use Snapchat at School
If you would like to use snapchat at school you will first need to either have service or connect to school wifi. In order to connect to a school wifi network you may need to find out the password. Passwords can usually be found on an online forum. Once you have connected to some form of data service, you can now take the next step. If snapchat is not blocked you can go ahead and start snapping. If it is blocked you will be required to download something called a VPN. VPN is an acronym for Virtual Private Network. There are a number of VPN apps available for download on both android and iOS. My current go to app is called “betternet”. This app is available on both android and iOS and is very simple to use. After you download the VPN, all you need to do is connect and you will be able to access anything that would normally be blocked by school wifi. In addition to allowing you to use blocked sites and apps, VPN will save your data usage because you will be using data from the wifi instead of your data plan. This will save you money if you do not have unlimited data.
