Apps Your Teen Uses to Capture Snapchat Porn

Teens and even Wall Street Bankers are still going crazy over the photo sharing app Snapchat. Snapchat is the popular iOS and android app that allows users to send (snap) pictures to each other. The sent images can be set to self-destruct within 5-10 seconds. Snapchat has outpaced Instagram and other social media sites. Snapchat founders are valuing the company close to 1 billion

One of the most recent issues with the app is it’s Android vulnerabilities. A recent firm discovered that vanished images could be restored from the app. The bad news for parents is that a teen does not need to pay 400-500 dollars to hire a data retrieval firm. There are several apps in the Google Play Store that allow teens to capture and restore deleted snaps for under 3 dollars. Here are the top Snapchat Capture apps.

SnapCapture [ROOT]- All Snapchat incoming Snapchat images and videos are saved to the phone. The app runs in the background of your phone. The person that sends the snap is not notified that their snap has been captured. The app requires the phone to be rooted.

SnapSave- saves all images and pictures even if the Snapchat meter is set at 1 second. Phone must be rooted

Snap Sync (Root)- All snaps are synced to your dropbox account. App blocks the sender from knowing that their images and videos have been copied.

Developers have found a quick way to monetize the ability to capture naughty Snaps. This trend will continue in the near future.

Here are three ways to Protect Your Teens

1. Communication- you need to let your teen know that apps exist that will covertly store all of their snaps. They need to be very conservative with any snaps.

2. Deny Root- never, never, never allow your teen to root their cell phones. All snap capturing apps require root access. Most nefarious apps are made for rooted phones. Root phones also allow malicious viruses to be downloaded

3. Monitor Storage- you should always check your teen cloud device storage systems such as Dropbox, Box, Google Drive,and Evernote to ensure that they are not downloading any pornographic materials.

Protect your teens parents!
