iOS: Snapchat, the app that sends disposable messages, just got its first dumpster diver. SnapHack takes those once ephemeral photos and videos and removes the self-destruct timer so you can save them forever.
Download the app and log into your Snapchat account. From there you can save anything you receive without the sender ever knowing. What was once a seemingly great outlet for trading snapshots of genitals now comes with the stern reminder it should have in the first place: if you share it, you lose control. The only secrets you truly keep are the ones you keep to yourself.
Next time you use Snapchat, remember that someone on the other end might be saving your private stuff (please define that as it pertains to your situation). Or maybe Snapchat will just turn it over to the authorities. If you’re going to share sensitive data, know how do it the right way. Now, Snapchat users only need iDevice and $0.99 to lift the limited veil of privacy once promised by the service.
