Snapchat want to distance themselves from third-party applications

Snapchat is a messaging service quite controversial, partly because of the use they make many people and secondly because of several problems that have occurred. Recently, Snapchat has announced it will begin to distance themselves from third-party applications as it does not consider that these are safe. You may remember that about a month ago there was a big leak photo service, all because of a tertiary application that allowed users to skip the self-destruct feature photos of the platform (one of its main features).

Snapsaved is the application to which we refer, and it allows the user to record the pictures that other people send. About 13GB of data, which incidentally contained more than 200,000 photos and videos were stolen after a hacker managed to access a server that was not configured properly.

Snapchat says using third-party apps is dangerous, because basically you’re providing your login credentials to a developer, or in the worst case to a criminal, and this if you want you can use the data to send information on your behalf.

While Snapchat hopes to improve safety, it is important that users collaborate on it, and the service has indicated that one of the best ways is to not use third party apps, especially those who violate the terms of use of this platform messaging.

Now the application is starting to make calls attention to users using tertiary apps, notifying you must stop using or could lose yourself in the worst case, which surely many do not want to happen.

What do you think about using third party applications to access certain services? Do you feel safe?
