Snapchat has released a statement in response to news this week that about 4.6 million usernames and phone numbers have been leaked. Snapchat says a security group found a way to use the app's "Find Friends" feature to access the company's database of usernames and phone numbers. After the security group found the hole, it also posted the programming language to the public. Snapchat's statement notably does not include an apology for the leak or even a statement saying it takes user privacy seriously. Still, the statement doesn't say Snapchat has a complete fix for the method hackers used to leak the private user information.
When we first built Snapchat, we had a difficult time finding other friends that were using the service.
A security group first published a report about potential Find Friends abuse in August 2013. We acknowledged in aA blog postA last Friday that it was possible for an attacker to use the functionality of Find Friends to upload a large number of random phone numbers and match them with Snapchat usernames.
We will be releasing an updated version of the Snapchat application that will allow Snapchatters to opt out of appearing in Find Friends after they have verified their phone number. We want to make sure that security experts can get ahold of us when they discover new ways to abuse our service so that we can respond quickly to address those concerns.
The Snapchat community is a place where friends feel comfortable expressing themselves and wea€™re dedicated to preventing abuse.

Shortly thereafter, we implemented practices like rate limiting aimed at addressing these concerns.

This is fun quiz game that consists of guessing the names of hundreds of logos from different companies. You give Snapchat your cell phone number so your friends can match it against the numbers in their address books. It will also limit the "rate" at which people can use Find Friends, which should help reduce the chances of more numbers and usernames being leaked. Find Friends is an optional service that asks Snapchatters to enter their phone number so that their friends can find their username. On Christmas Eve, that same group publicly documented our API, making it easier for individuals to abuse our service and violate our Terms of Use. This means that if you enter your phone number into Find Friends, someone who has your phone number in his or her address book can find your username.
