    If you use any online social media service, you have to be aware that anything you post either is already public or could one day be made public. It is best not to say or do anything that you would not like to be public.

    One of Snapchat’s most liked features is its privacy – messages and photos disappear after 24 hours, leaving no trail. Well, maybe not. It has been discovered that Snapchat has internal tools that enable employees to access users’ posts and someone could have been accessing yours.

    It is not clear whether this is still happening at Snapchat, but it does appear to have happened in the past and employees spied on people using a tool called SnapLion. Engadget has the Snapchat privacy story.
