The truth about Snapchat leaked pics

There isn't a great deal to tell you about Snapchat leaked pics.  They are exactly as the name suggests - pictures that have been leaked onto the internet from the Snapchat application.

How do Snapchat pictures get leaked?

The problem with Snapchat is that people feel more secure than they actually are.  The reason for this is that Snapchat images disappear from the application after a short time, and therefore, many people believe they can send whatever they want without compromise. 

Of course, the images I'm talking about are usually people with few clothes on, or doing something they probably wouldn't want shown to the entire world. 

Snapchat pics are leaked due to a convenient (or inconvenient if you're a victim of this) feature called screenshot.  Basically, people go onto Snapchat, and screenshot the images before they're wiped from the app.  Therefore, the person now has a permanent copy of the image that would have been deleted under normal circumstances, and can do whatever they want with it.

As you likely know, these images usually end up on the internet for the world to see.  It's unfair on the person in the image because it's probably something they're not going to want people to be able to view.

How to avoid having pictures leaked from Snapchat

If you're a Snapchat user, your best bet to avoid your friends and family seeing an embarrassing image of you on the internet is to simply not send any! You never know who will screenshot that image, and there's not much you can do about it if they do.

The best piece of advice I could give is to think before you send a Snapchat image - "Would I mind this being published on the internet?"
