Snapchat Has A New Feature That Will Do Us All A Big Favour
Snapchat have introduced a new feature which should mean that the snaps that you send and receive are a lot more protected.
You may not notice it when using the app, but it could save you a lot of embarrassment and distress in the future.
Starting this week, the app will warn you if another app on your phone is saving your pictures. Snapchatters using third-party apps that automatically save incoming and outgoing images will be forced to change their password. If they refuse, their accounts will be locked.
Experts are seeing this as a huge step forward. They say that the whole point of Snapchat is that photos have a self-destruct timer. This is the feature that made Snapchat popular for sexting and sending nude images.
The majority of users won’t notice these changes, but it should help ensure that all of our private snaps remain exactly that, private.
