    Pros
    It has helped me to integrate work with fun activities in one space. It has been very helpful and useful for Content Creation.
    It is an amazing platform to explore during lockdown. I feel more confortable using snapchat than instagram since I only keep my best friends there.
    It’s super easy to quickly catch up with friends through images, which is more lively than texted. The social media is focused on posting images and videos only.
    Cons
    Also because of the disappearing feature, I worry that not the greatest people can send insulting messages to children without their being long-lasting proof that could prove their guilt.
    I wanted to completely block the Discover section so that nothing showed up on there that could potentially be inappropriate for her.
    The promotional filters are the worst. I cannot stand the filters that come with sound.

    The resolution of the pictures that came from snapchat not satisfied for certain people but still better for the more , also the erasing the chat after it viewed or after 24 hrs. from viewing it's consider as a disadvantage for the app

    Highs and lows

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Was great until I had to deactivate my account due to constantly getting hacked.

    Pros

    First, it's very easy to set up as a new user and a very easy app to use. The filters are fun and it's exciting when they upload new filters. It's an overall fun way to keep connecting with friends and family.

    Cons

    The biggest issue I ran into was with security issues. My account got hacked and I had to go through the process of account recovery. I figured that was the end until about a week later and I got notified in my email that there were multiple attempt, yet again, that someone was trying to log into my account. When I opened the app, yet again, I had to do another recovery to regain access. Due to my account constantly getting hacked, I just ended up deactivating my account all together and now I no longer use it for fear of the risk of.my personal data getting breached.
