Snapchat and FTC Privacy Concerns

The FTC is clamming that Snapchat deceived some of their users over the data it collects with the “Find Friends” feature of the app. It exposed around 4.6 million users phone numbers. But we’re hearing today they settled the whole thing. In this agreement, Snapchat will be prohibited from misrepresenting the extent to which it maintains the privacy, security, or confidentiality of users information. They are also required to invoke a privacy program which is going to be monitored for the next twenty years. Im sure everyone that is crazy about privacy can appreciate the concern.
