Is Snapchat Down Right Now?


Having trouble signing into Snapchat? You’re not the only one. Snapchat’s Support Team tweeted a statement regarding the problem at 3:42 P.M. on Monday, that “some snapchatters are having trouble with the app,” specifically loading and signing into the app.


Roughly 40 minutes after their first Tweet, Snapchat sent out another update. The support team said that they’re aware of what’s causing the problem and are currently “working on a fix with Google.”


Many users are reporting a very annoying issue, in which the app attempt to refresh, but ends up with an error message saying “cannot refresh.” Meanwhile, other users were able to log in, but upon logging out, they weren’t able to return to their Snapchat app. It’s not known how long this issue will last…
And as you could expect, people were freaking the f**k out on social media about this Snapchat crash. Some people didn’t know what to do with themselves without Snapchat access, while others worried about losing their Snapstreaks…


Well, that escalated quickly. Some might have thought the world ended with their Snapchat…

What is Snapchat?

Snapchat is a highly-poplar app, as it is currently the number four most-downloaded application on the iTunes App Store behind Instagram, YouTube and tbh.
Several students from Stanford University launched the Snapchat App back in September 2011. What makes this app special is that photos and messages are only available for a limited amount of time before disappearing from your account forever. Throughout its existence, Snapchat has added numerous mods to their app, such as “Snap Map.” This feature was released in June 2017, which allowed users the capability of locating their friends on a map. However, this feature caused a bit of controversy regarding privacy and safety.
A Snapchat spokesperson released a statement regarding the controversy, saying “The safety of our community is very important to us and we want to make sure that all Snapchatters, parents, and educators have accurate information about how the Snap Map works.”


Was Snapchat Ever Hacked?

On December 31, 2013, Snapchat was hacked by an anonymous group, exposing the info of about 4.6 million Snapchat users, releasing their phone numbers and publishing it on a web site.
Following this massive hack, the group released a statement saying its goal was to “raise public awareness” and expose the company’s security vulnerability, pressing the company to mend their security measures.
In early 2017, Snap, Inc., Snapchat’s parent company, became a publicly-traded company and was able to raise more than $3.4 billion in its initial public offering. Following its very first day on the stock market, Snapchat’s stock closed at $24.48, which is up 44 percent from where it originally started that day.
