Are You One Of 4.6 Million People Who Had Their Snapchat Hacked?

More than 4.6 million Snapchat account usernames and phone numbers were leaked by hackers on a site called SnapchatDB.info. The only way you’ll know if your information is out there is by checking here yourself.
The hackers were supposedly doing you a favor by teaching Snapchat a lesson about privacy and security, they told Mashable, “Our motivation behind the release was to raise the public awareness around the issue, and also put public pressure on Snapchat to get this exploit fixed. It is understandable that tech startups have limited resources but security and privacy should not be a secondary goal. Security matters as much as user experience does.”
Basically they felt like Snapchat had bad security, so they hacked Snapchat to prove it. If you’re Snapchatting people on the internet that you don’t know or using it for random hookups you may not want strangers to have your phone number, after all, you can find someone’s address just by searching their phone number, so it’s dangerous info to have floating around the net.
While the hackers did prove their point they ended up potentially compromising almost 5 million people’s security, there must’ve been a better way to do this. We can only thank Jebus that people’s photos weren’t released without their permission. That would have been a real manmade disaster.
