What things should I be concerned about when it comes to our 11 year old having a 3DS?

Our 11 year old girl just earned a Nintendo 3DS. My husband and I are pretty comfortable with technology but I never even had a Gameboy and I know that the DS has a lot of features like taking pictures, a web browser and the ability to access Netflix.
So, what dangerous/stupid/terrifying thing is my child going to do with this and is there a way for me to preempt any of that? We've already refused to give her our wifi password. Are there other steps we should be taking?
It's probably worth mentioning that this is a foster child and guarding her privacy is very important to us which means that keeping her away from Facebook and unable to access her email without an adult watching is pretty important to us as she has some unsafe family members who are bad at respecting boundaries.
