    Hackers Prepare to Release At Least 100,000 Private Snapchat Photos
    Some photos didn't really 'disappear' after time was up.

    Uh oh.

    You may want to think twice before you send that Snapchat.

    A giant database of Snapchat photos and videos is reportedly being released by hackers who claim they have been collecting the files for years, according to Business Insider.

    At least 100,000 photos belonging to private individuals are being downloaded by users of 4chan. A giant database will allow you to search Snapchat users by name.

    According to the New York Times, the photos appear to have come from people using Snapsaved, a third-party app that allows you to store photos from Snapchat that would normally self-destruct after a set time limit.

    The leak is being dubbed "The Snappening."

    Earlier this year, hackers published the account names and phone numbers of 4.6 million Snapchat users online in an attempt to pressure the mobile application to improve its security.

    If anyone really thought for one second that their photos would just disappear after a set time needs to have their head examined. There was probably an app out to capture the photos 2 minutes after snapchat launched. People are so stupid :facepalm:

    Dawg, no offense but this is targeted at young teens-12 to 17. I'm pretty clueless tech wise so I would stupidly go along with it. I just told my 15 yo daughter about this and read her the riot act!

    It's an app where kids share pics of themselves and they only last for a few seconds and then get deleted-but apparently they don't :(

    it's an ap on phones and devices.

    Snapchat is a photo messaging application developed by Evan Spiegel, Reggie Brown and Bobby Murphy, then Stanford University students. 4] Using the application, users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients
    These sent photographs and videos are known as "Snaps". Users set a time limit for how long recipients can view their Snaps (as of April 2014, the range is from 1 to 10 seconds),[7] after which they will be hidden from the recipient's device and deleted from Snapchat's servers. According to Snapchat in May 2014, the app's users were sending 700 million photos and videos per day, while Snapchat Stories content was being viewed 500 million times per day.

    Anf, I totally agree and have had many talks w/my daughter about this!
    But kids are stupid and their brains aren't fully developed yet. When I think about all the stupid shit I did as a teen it makes me nuts! I was already drinking at my daughter age and she's home pretty much every night. Who knows??

    This is going to be a legal nightmare. How many people are going to be downloading pics of underage teens but not thinking about it in those terms

    we all were and it's our job as adults to be massive hypocrites and tell our kids they're fucktards and not do the shit we did. although we mostly don't tell em what we did or we lose all our power.

    My kids are still too young but I doubt I will be living squeaky clean when I'm giving the little fuckers hell for acting the same way I did. I'm fearful of being too honest and losing the upper hand.
