Dirty Snapchat photos are no longer private or completely erased thanks to “Snapchat Leaked,” a new website that has posted hundreds of pornographic Snapchat photos without the senders’ consent.
Snapchat photos are supposed to pop up for 10 or fewer seconds and then vanish forever. This discreetness has made the app extremely popular for the exchange of racy photos.
But Snapchat also has a surprisingly obvious flaw: users can take a screenshot of the pictures that were sent to them. And now, recipients of pornographic images are secretly uploading them to “Snapchat Leaked.”
Anyone can submit a saved picture to the site, which has categories such as “women,” “men,” “sexy” and “stupid.”
Its Facebook page has amassed over 500,000 likes in under 20 hours, but has since been shut down.
“Facebook has unpublished our page due to users using the page to ‘bully’ others,” Snapchat Leaked told Britain’s Metro tabloid. “We are working with Facebook on this issue.”
The site was meant to mimic the wave of “revenge porn” websites that allow bitter ex-lovers to post humiliating photos and videos of their former partners.
But as of this week, the Facebook page and the entire site itself are inaccessible.
