Mark Cuban explains why downloading Snapchat is a huge mistake

 

Billionaire entrepreneur and “Shark Tank” cohost Mark Cuban explains why apps like Snapchat are not secure and how any message you send can come back to haunt you.

Snapchat’s response: Not clear on what the context is around [Mark Cuban’s statement], but when we say it’s “deletion by default” it is because it’s closer to regular conversations. You can always record a conversation, but ordinarily you wouldn’t. Snapchat is more about the social norms and expectation than secrecy. 

Mark Cuban is the creator of Cyber Dust, a private messaging app. His user name is +blogmaverick.
