Over the past 24 hours, the fears of every avid Snapchat user were realized. The sexy, silly and innocuous photos sent using the buzzy app were being submitted for all to see and share on Snapchat Leaked, a website that collected and published user-submitted screenshots. It garnered worldwide attention for breaking the first (and unwritten) rule of the ephemeral app: What ever happens on Snapchat, stays there.
Then, faster than it takes for a Snapchat to dissolve, Snapchat Leaked disappeared.
UPDATE: The Real Story Behind Snapchat Leaked, the Site Publishing Screenshots of Your Embarrassing Snaps
In case the hack of recovering supposedly deleted photos wasn’t enough to scare you away from Snapchat, then we found something even more terrifying. It’s called Snapchat Leaked (NSFW) and it confirms all of your horrifying nightmares about whatever naughty things you send on the app becoming public.
Mostly popular in Britain, Snapchat Leaked is a worrisome blog brimming with user-submitted screenshots alternating between the naughty (like butts, tits, etc.), the cheeky and whatever the hell this is. But worry not, topless snappers: the site doesn’t fully expose all of the pictures submitted by rabblerousers, as some of the boob pics have a strategically placed Snapchat logo over the nipples. The blog doesn’t reveal the user’s Snapchat ID either.
