Snapchat is a video messenger mobile application. The mobile application works both on Android devices and iOS for Apple based devices. The programmer trio Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy and Reggie Brown, developed it in 2011. It was a great achievement for those Stanford students at that point of time.
This mobile application became famous because it has a fabulous social networking theme. It allows the user to take photographs and videos, which according to the applications are known as snaps. The user can send those snaps to their friends and family. The specialty of this application is, the sender can fix the time the receiver is allowed to watch the picture. After the predefined time by the sender, the picture will be automatically deleted from the receiver’s device. Normally the range of the time is from 1 to 10 seconds that can be set by the sender.

Now the application is very secure and safe for sending pictures that the sender can easily delete private photos from the receivers phone in short time. However, there might be a question that anyone can easily take screenshot of the pictures? Snapchat developers have kept that in mind. The receiver to see the image needs to maintain a touch on their touch screen to view the image for the full time. If the touch is not maintained then the receiver will not view the image. Through this feature, the receiver cannot take a screenshot because taking a screenshot without taking your fingers off the screen is quite impossible.
