Snapchat Snaps can be retrieved for law enforcement


Attention avid Snapchat users: Your 5-second naked selfies may not be as private as you think they are. Considering Snapchats are sent over Snapchat servers, this should already be common knowledge, but some might find technology confusing. Snapchat safety head Micah Schaffer has assured Snapchat users that their SnapsĀ areĀ private and are deleted from servers 30 days after they’re delivered and opened, assuring a level of privacy for users’ dirty little secrets.

However, Schaffer has also confirmed that unopened Snaps still on the Snapchat servers have been delivered to authorities when they’re presented with search warrants in accordance with the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). Some might balk at the news, citing an invasion of privacy over the ordeal. Others, like myself, will laugh at those balking. Technology is a funny mistress, especially when under the watchful eye of the law.
