There is no denial that Snapchat is doing well! A while back we reported on how SnapChat’s valuation had reached $10 billion, but today we’ve got some news about Snapchat that aren’t going to improve the company’s image at all. It seems that the site where users can save Snapchat images, Snapsaved.com got hacked.
Snapsaved.com Got Hacked
SnapChat is an app that lets people send photos over it which automatically get deleted, seconds after being viewed. Teens seem to love this app, but now it may lose a lot of users after Snapsaved.com got hacked. Snapsaved is a website that allows its users to save the images they were sent through Snapchat. It was revealed by Snapsaved.com that the hackers got around 500 MB of images from their databases.
Snapsaved release a statement on their Facebook account saying that they had closed down their website and erased their servers as soon as they had noticed that Snapsaved.com got hacked. They also said that the hackers who were making the threats were exaggerating when they saying that they would create a searchable database with all the imaged they had fraudulently downloaded. The website also stated that it was their own website that was hacked and not SnapChat:
SnapChat has not been hacked, and these images do not originate from their database. The recent rumors about the snappening are a hoax. The hacker does not have sufficient information to live up to his claims of creating a searchable database.
This scandal could even harm SnapChat, which has faced criticism in the past regarding their privacy policies and settings.
