Texting sexually explicit messages and photos (also known as ‘sexting’) have grown significantly with the rising popularity of smartphones. However, sexting carries with it a notorious reputation of private images and SMS conversations making their way onto public websites for everyone to see. A new mobile app called Snapchat aims to add a bit of security and a peace of mind to sharing personal photos.

Snapchat allows users to set a timer up to 10 seconds of when the message would self-destruct after being received. If the receiver tries to take a screenshot, then the sender will be instantly notified.
