--- ' If you’ve ever tried to recover lost data after accidentally deleting a drive or maybe watched an episode of CSI, you might know that with the right forensic tools, it’s sometimes possible to retrieve data after it has been deleted.' – The Snapchat peeps Jeez, Snapchat, we were kinda hoping you’d declare it all lies, but alas.It would appear that our nudes are not as safe as we thought. With ' Snapchat Story,' if you accidentally post something you don't want, you can take it down (a new perk from Snapchat) and pray that no one had a chance to view it already.We've been told that you can use it for things other than sending your face with a doodle on it to your friends when you're bored at work.Supposedly, it comes in quite handy in the old erotic department too. You can now send pre-saved pictures from your camera roll to Snapchat (accessed by pressing the square at the bottom left of the screen), and amend these as above.--- ' I was surprised no one else had done it because of how easy [retrieving deleted Snapchat photos] was.It just took a couple of days to discover it.' – Richard Hickman, Decipher Forensics Snapchat’s response?Anyone who has your phone number can send you a message on Snapchat but if you only want your Snapchat friends (the people you have accepted) to be able to do so, change your ' Who Can Send Me Snaps' settings to ' My Friends.' Apart from finding people from your contacts list, in order to make connections on Snapchat, you have to know the person's username.So if there is anyone in particular you would like to be Snapchat friends with, go ahead and ask them for their Snapchat username.
However, this may warrant some unwanted attention so thank God 'blocking' is an option.
As with any form of 'talking-to-strangers-over-the-internet', you never know who you are really talking to. What if, however, you send an inappropriate message, picture or video to the wrong person? Unfortunately, you can’t retrieve a message once it’s been sent out.
Your new Snapchat friend may be underage, or a psycho or something. Take this poor girl here for instance who accidentally sent a nude of herself to her dad. As always, we are glad to be of service to your and your sex life.

Unfortunately, Snapchat’s original genius plan for privacy was kind of thrown out the window when screenshotting became a thing.
If however, someone screenshots what you’ve sent them on Snapchat, Snapchat lets you know that they have done so.This is all well and good, but what good is Snapchat if you don't have any friends?
