Snapchat won't Share Your Private Snaps Online.



Snapchat has been forced to clarify their new privacy policy after it was reported that it gives the company total ownership over user content.

Over the weekend Snapchat faced backlash social media after it was reported that the app will own every photo and video sent through the app, and save them for its own use.... However, the company says it's not true.

Snapchat has debunk the rumours asking everyone to relax and says that your nudes share in private chat will remain your own business.

The photo-sharing app released a statement on Twitter and in a blog post on Monday morning stating that the updated of their privacy policy and terms of use was so that they "read the way people actually talk".

The company's statement said:


"The snaps and chats you send your friends remain as private today as they were before the update.

"Our privacy policy continues to say - as it did before - that those messages 'are automatically deleted from our servers once we detect that they have been viewed or have expired.'

"Snapchat is not - and never has been - stockpiling your private snaps or chats. And because we continue to delete them from our servers as soon as they're read, we could not - and do not - share them with advertisers or business partners."

Snapchat said the reason it updated its privacy policy and terms of use was so that they "read the way people actually talk".

The company explained that its license to share user content only extended to services such as Live Stories... You can chill, your nudes are safe with SnapChat.
