We send you pictures of our prize packages and this is how you repay us?
Kids these days. Back when cell phones first had photo capabilities, people sent each other pics of their naked bits and had to just trust that the person receiving it would treat it with respect. (But as we've profiled before, that totally never happens.)
But then Snapchat came around, and everyone was psyched because all of those incriminating, job-offer-ruining, grandkid-embarrassing naked photos would melt into space, never to be seen by everyone on the Internet. You could just send out pics of your bathroom area to anyone, and there could never be repercussions, right?
And if anyone does screenshot your shit, you'll get a little warning and you'll know that person isn't too be trusted. What a great system.
Turns out, that ain't true. The British jerks over at the Mirror have outlined exactly how people might be secretly stashing photos of your gross, naked snapchats without your knowing about it.
Once Airplane Mode is activated, return to the Snapchat app. The message should still be available to open, despite you not being connected to the internet.
Once you’ve taken a screenshot of the picture, close the app and make sure it isn’t running in the background.
iOS users should double click the home button and swipe the app to close it, and Android users should access the multitasking window and close it from there.
After you turn Airplane Mode off and re-open Snapchat the message will appear unopened, and neither the sender nor Snapchat are any the wiser.
Moral of the story? If you really, really want someone to see you naked, just do it live so your flabby ass won't show up on the Internet.
