Hacking Snapchat – is it possible?
Snapchat is a very popular instant messaging service on Android and iOS. The app has been installed by millions upon of millions of users and has quickly become a favorite of most smartphone users. However, while the fact that the images you send on Snapchat are deleted after the recipient has viewed them might seem alluring, there’s a certain danger that you might not be aware of. There are several websites that offer a Snapchat hack which allows you to hack the password of any Snapchat account you desire. I’m sure most people are aware of the fact that in 2014 the “Snappening” took place, during which thousands of people got their Snapchat account comprimised.
However, the difference between the “Snappening” and the Snapchat hack I found online is that the hack I found allows you to hack any account on demand. All you need is the username of the account you want to hack and you can view all their snaps and even their password. At first this so called Snapchat hack seemed unbelievable to me. I refused to believe that it would be that easy to hack into a Snapchat account. Therefore, I decided to test it out for myself.
Testing the Snapchat hack
As mentioned before, it seemed impossible to me that hacking a Snapchat account was that simple. Thus, I gave it a shot to see if it would live up to the hype. In order to do so I created a brand new Snapchat account. On this Snapchat account I sent a test snap to my real account with a sample image. I then entered the username of the brand new account on the snaphackspy site. I didn’t expect much of it. Once I entered the username of the account a console looking interface popped up. After a few seconds I was prompted to verify that I was human through installing an app. After I did this I was shocked. The image I sent on the test account was revealed to me, and the password was too. It was baffling to see that it was that simple to hack into a Snapchat account. However, now that I had seen proof that it actually worked I had no other option but to believe it. I asked one of my friends who works in data security if he could explain to me how this website works and how it is able to spy on my Snapchat account so easily. He admitted to me that he too was stunned that it was actually possible to hack a Snapchat account in such a simple way.
