    You can check you username and number at snapcheck.org to see if it was within the leak.

    Wow, that really sucks. Maybe BlackBerry will take advantage and present their own similar app?

    This would never happen to BBM. BlackBerry has a chance to promote BBM as the most secure, fastest real time messaging app to date.

    It would be better if Snapchat informed their users. Why would people go to a third party website and just start entering their information? Not very secure.

    It's a fair point given the all the information that has recently come out about the scale and depth the US intelligence community has violated personal privacy on an international scale. If you have Netflix I suggest watching dirty war. Its a pretty scary accounting of a lot of whats going on.

    If you look at the screen shot, there are a lot of usernames starting with Obama. So, I don't think he was being purely political, just observant.

    It surprises me that, if in fact they only had roughly 4.6+ million users, that their company was valued at over $3 Billion.

    Yep. I'm in the leak. But it is just a user name, right? What is the big deal? And my personal name and phone number is all over the place. I've given it to every company I've ever signed up with. So what is the value to this information to nefarious folks?

    Also I don't use the app. I just downloaded it to see how it worked. Kids use it a lot though. So it is popular with the youths.

    I've never used it.

    If someone else uses the app and I'm in their contact list could I be in the list too? I'm not putting my number or anything in the checker either.

    Funny that this is still "relative" low key news given the popularity of the app and the extent of the compromise. Or its just me not reading the right papers. The cynic in me says if this happened to BlackBerry, it would have been lapped up and be front page news on every tech publication out there.

    do people still think associating a phone number with an account is still a good idea? ask the relatives of people who have had family members die, only to see them log in a few months later on whatsapp
