Snapchat Employees Used Tools to Misuse User Data

During the recent times, it is seen that privacy has become a great cause for concern. Instagram was earlier attacked by a data flaw and the next in line is none other than Snapchat. Recently, Snapchat employees have been found to misuse their rights to access user data.

The information misused includes saved snaps, phone numbers email addresses, and location information.  A tool known as 'SnapLion' is being used to access the information.

Snapchat says that user privacy is important to them and if such an activity is found to be happening than it would result in immediate termination.
