That's not good news. We can only imagine the fear and panic running through the heads of sexters everywhere. It appears that Snapchat, the app that allows the sending and instant deletion of pictures, has a character flaw that doesn't delete the appropriate pictures that app is meant to be used for. According to thedailybeast.com:
A digital forensics company discovered that the app actually saves the images to a hidden folder on the phone called RECEIVED_IMAGES_SNAPS. A file extension called “.NOMEDIA” keeps the images from being viewed, but the Decipher Forensics team has found a way to take the files off the phone and change the extension, making them viewable again.
But fear not, the process of deciphering the photos on your phone runs anywhere from $300-$500, and is currently only available on Android. The company says an iPhone application is in the makings.
Luckily for us, we're ahead of the game and moved on to bigger and better things like Tinder. Why waste time with incriminating photos when you can get straight to the point?
