According to reports, explicit images from the Snapchat app have been leaked from a 3rd-party app. The incident was dubbed the “Snappening”. About 200,000 users of Snapchart, mostly teenagers, have allegedly had their pictures collected by the third party within years before those were posted online.
“Snappening” refers to the last month’s “Fappening”, where nude pictures leaked from the iCloud accounts of a number of celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Rita Ora and Kim Kardashian. The pictures were posted online for everyone to see and became the event of the month.
Snapchat is a photo-sharing app that allows its users to share videos and images which would then disappear seconds after being received. However, it is known that you can save the picture by taking a screen grab within those seconds. Media reports allege that the leaked images were collected and stored on the servers of a website Snapsaved. This is the site where Snapchat users could save their screen grabs instead of keeping them on their phone. Other media reports claim that the leaked images and videos were being posted on 4Chan – this is an online service that hosted the leaked celebrity pictures.
This is not the first time that the Snapchat app drew everyone’s attention because of security issues: earlier in 2014, the hackers published user names and phone numbers online. In the meantime, police and children’s charities have warned teenagers that it is risky to use the application to send explicit images. It s known that 50% of Snapchat’s 4.6 million users are teenagers, and the concerns are that many of the leaked images may be of children.
