Snapchat the latest photo and video sending app has made everyone its addict right from teens to
the middle aged. This app allows the user to send photos and videos within a fraction of second.
The photos once viewed get automatically deleted from the recipient’s device which saves it
from being used for some wrong activities. The Snapchat Company keeps on updating its
version’s so that the users do not get easily bored from this fun app. The users of this app have a
right to set a time limit of viewing the sent items for the recipient’s after the expiry of the time
limit the snaps get deleted from the server’s website and cannot be retrieved.
However being a social media app of the 21st has its own cause and concern’s. The company’s
claim that the snaps get deleted after viewing or after the expiry of the time limit was proven to
be false by a leading press release company. The claims of both parties were inspected and it
was found that the photos can be retrieved with the use of proper forensic tools. As a result the
company had to pay a heavy amount as security breach and faces a privacy monitoring for a
period of 20 years. Not only this Snapchat also faces some serious issues like transferring of
vulgar content which is known as “sexting” , with a few majority of people admitting to have
used Snapchat for sexting.
