Snapchat Allows Users to Safely Send Scandalous Captures

Snapchat is an app that protects smartphone users by allowing them to destroy the images after they've been sent.

Snapchat works by sending images with a built-in timer, set for up to ten seconds. After the designated time is finished, the scandalizing photo will self-destruct, never to show its face on a network again. Screenshot protection, another service that Snapchat affords to its users, is the second reason why this add-on is so valuable. When the app senses that it is being recorded in any way, a message will immediately be dispatched to the sender.

With many worried about their online presence, especially with the permanence of web content, the app is a sigh of relief for those looking to spice up their smartphone interactions. Cutting-edge, and definitely in line with common web anxieties, this is an ingenious way to protect smartphone users.
