Snapchat is a photo sharing app.[1] Using the app, people can take pictures, add a text or drawing and send them to a list of contacts.[2] The service started in September 2011.[3] At first it was intended to send selfies that would disappear quickly but people learned how to save the pictures.

In June 2017 the app added "Snap Map". Snap Map is a feature that broadcasts the user's location on a map. This caused concerns over privacy and safety.[4]
