The last months Snapchat has been having a lot of security problems. There were Snapchat photos stolen and posted online, thanks to the use of some third-party apps. However I can assure that ProSnap has not been, and still isn’t, vulnerable to those attacks. We do not store any user information, apart from usage logs. We do not store images, videos, usernames and passwords. But thanks to those image leaks, Snapchat is penalizing users who use third-party Snapchat apps.
According to Windows Central Snapchat started to sent out email messages to users of third-party Snapchat apps, with the following message:
“We’ve noticed that you’re using a third-party application to access Snapchat, putting yourself (and possibly your friends) at risk. Please change your password and stop using third-party applications when you access Snapchat.”
The email directs users to snapchat.com/locked for more information.
Since Snapchat doesn’t have an official app for Windows or Windows phone, Windows users are only able to access Snapchat to third-party apps.
We’re still investigating those issues and we’re looking at possible solutions for the future. It would be greatly appreciated if you would use the form below to notify us if you got such an email.
