Around , private photos sent using the photo messaging app Snapchat were reportedly stolen and leaked on Thursday. People on the Internet message board 4chan , which was blamed in part for the recent hack of celebrity nudes as well, began passing around the Snapchat photos on Thursday night, according to Business Insider. It's likely that many of the photos compromised belonged to underaged users, since 50 percent of Snapchat's users are between the ages of 13 and If the photos are deemed pornographic -- Snapchat users have a history of sending racy photos -- possession and distribution of them could lead to prison time. Snapchat itself was not compromised in the hack, a spokeswoman for the company told The Huffington Post. Instead, hackers obtained the photos through one of many third-party Snapchat apps, which are often used to covertly save Snapchats without letting the sender know. There are whispers that a third-party app called Snapsave was the app that was hacked , but that is only a rumor for now. In an emailed statement a Snapchat spokeswoman explained that the company explicitly tells users to avoid such third-party apps for just this reason.

By Helena Horton. Snapchat has been causing quite a stir with its new update, with new filters that make you look like you have hearts for eyes, or like you're vomiting rainbows. However, their less flashy new feature is perhaps more interesting - they are letting you pay to replay 'snaps' - pictures that last for a few seconds then immediately self-destruct - and screenshot them. Snapchat is immensely popular for sexting, because you can send a naked photograph of yourself to your beau and rest assured that it won't end up on Facebook, as it self destructs in a matter of seconds. If you send a snap that is too short to be screen-shotted - experts recommend on or below the 3-second mark, unless your partner has especially quick fingers - then you are safe. The majority of Snapchat users are quite young, teenagers and people in their early twenties.
