Snapchat Hands Over Your Messages To The Authorities

Here's a good idea...just pretend everything you do and say on the internet is being handed over to the authorities. That way, you aren't surprised when you read stuff like this. wink

For example, if we receive a search warrant from law enforcement for the contents of Snaps and those Snaps are still on our servers, a federal law called the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) obliges us to produce the Snaps to the requesting law enforcement agency. Since May 2013, about a dozen of the search warrants we’ve received have resulted in us producing unopened Snaps to law enforcement.
