Share Prerecorded Images and Videos via Snapchat
We’ve known for some time that Snapchat isn’t exactly the most secure image sharing app available, especially if the recipient is running a rooted device. But there’s another, far less malicious form of deception possible in Snapchat: sending pre-recorded images and videos through the app, as if they were just taken.
