that the server of Snapchat has been hacked and for that the hackers are getting those explicit
pictures. But the authority of Snap chat claims their servers are not hacked as there is high
security. There are some third party apps, who are allowing the users to take the screenshots, and
thus some people are getting explicit pictures from the app.

The authority accuses Snapsave and Snapsaved. com for this third party involvement. But the
two companies denies the accusation and they say that they even do not use the username and
password of Snapchat users. A report says that the server of Snap chat was hacked, and this
server a high security and for that the privacy of the users are now disclosed. There are many
users, who take screen shots of the adult objects and spread it on many websites, for money or

use it for some ill purpose. The owner of those nude pictures gets themselves on the web without
their knowledge and their lives becomes problematic.
