A Sunday event known as the "The Snappening" may have revealed compromising photos for an unknown number of Snapchat's users of a third-party website, according to The Guardian. Hackers on Sunday posted photos and videos of Snapchat users, some of them underage, following through with a threat issued on Friday. Roughly 13 gigabytes worth of pictures and videos from a site called Snapsaved. How many of these photos might have been explicit and how many were of underage users is unclear. But the hackers who posted the images may have been the same ones responsible for posting nude photos of such celebrities as Jennifer Lawrence through the 4chan system this summer. By default, Snapchat deletes your photos and videos after they are viewed by the receiving party.

It's a membership platform where fans can pay to see their favourite smut stars on a subscription basis. As well as porn performers, sex workers and Instagram influencers use the site. It boasts 18, performers in total, according to OnlyFans.
The year-old singer posted a tweet saying that she sent "very private Snapchats" to a boy when she was 14 years old.
