You see this Snapchat above?! Snapchat lied that this would disappear forever!
Or at least so says the Federal Trade Commission.
The FTC said today that Snapchat had agreed to settle on charges that it had deceived users into thinking that their snaps would "disappear forever," when we all pretty much all know that there are ways to save snaps!
You hear that? Your d*ck pics aren't safe! They never were.
According to the FTC, you can use a third party app to save them, and also take screenshots of the photo unbeknownst to the sender.
In addition, according to the complaint, Snapchat transmitted info on users’ location, and collected sensitive data including contacts from address books, even when it said it didn't!
Snapchat? More like the NSA, right?!
As part of their settlement, Snapchat will no longer be able to misrepresent its privacy abilities, institute a privacy program that will be independently monitored, and will have to incur fines if they don't comply!
We hope they've learned their lesson!
