Indian hackers claim 17 million snapchat users leak data


Some
 hackers of India have claimed that they have posted personal data of 17 million Snapchat users on the Deep Web. These unknown hackers claim that they have taken this step in exchange for the alleged statement of Snapchat CEO in which India was called 'poor country'. 

According to Variety Magazine, Snapchat has denied reports of hacking. The company also says that CEO Evan Spiegel has never said that the app is for 'rich people only' and 'not for poor countries like India and Spain'. 

In the meanwhile, the anger of the Indians is not going to calm down. Apple's rating on Apple Store has dropped to a single star, lower than five stars. Some users on Twitter also ran campaigns like #UninstallSnapchat and #BoycottSnapchat. It is being said that nearly 20 million people have uninstalled the app. 

A company spokesman says, Spanchat is for everyone. It's free to download all over the world. The statement which is being talked about has been fabricated by a dissident former employee on their behalf. We are grateful to Snapchat users in India and around the world. 
It is worth mentioning that a man named Anthony Pompliano had left the Facebook and joined the snapchat but in two weeks the company had fired it. Anthony has filed a case against Snapchat, who is currently running in the Los Angeles Court. 

About 300 million people use this app at least once every month. Every 30 thousand photos are taken on this app. The userbase sending at least one photo daily is 75% from North America and Europe. There are about 40 million users in this app in India. 

In 2013, hackers hacked data of 46 million Snaphat accounts. The edited version of this data was available on the Internet and no one could access it. The company had to apologize later in this case.
