Eton College, the all-boys British boarding school that has produced the likes of Prince Harry and Bear Grylls, has banned Snapchat out of fears that the boys were exposing too much of their union jacks with each other.

According to the Telegraph, the elite school has barred students from accessing the app over the school’s wifi out of fears of sexting. Students can still use Snapchat over their cellular network, but the school’s headmaster (obviously) said the ban is to diffuse some its frisky students from oversharing.

“Boys can still use it via the 3G phone network, but we hope that blocking it on our network will at least make them think twice. This is part of our continuing effort to educate boys in the sensible use of technology,” said Tony Little, the headmaster.

Hope the boys can figure out another way to send pictures of their polo sticks.
