We talk a lot about whether or not people’s privacy can really be guaranteed online, and usually the enemy we imagine hunting for our info is a government or company. I found a news article that proved that sometimes it isn’t giant faceless entities that try to breach our privacy and trust… Sometimes it can be our close friends. A man named Darren Jones recently created an app that allows users to save Snapchat pictures and videos. There are already apps that do this, but the thing that distinguishes this one is that it doesn’t alert the sender when a Snapchat is saved. Darren Jones made this app because he wanted to alert people that apps like this do exist and people’s Snapchats might not be as private as originally thought. This app, called Snaphack, is probaby going to be taken down soon by Snapchat, but the author’s purpose was admittedly grey-hat. He warns people that they need to think twice before sending an image that they expect will be deleted soon. This is especially true for anyone who is foolhardy enough to use Snapchat for sexting, because personal images could be saved and shared without the sender ever becoming aware. Privacy is vulnerable from all angles, and people should be careful when making anything digital and permanent.
