Lately I have been finding myself in more and more akward positions becouse I don’t have any social media apps. A few of my friends told me that it really is time that I also should get a social media account aswell, specifically Snapchat.
In short; snapchat is an app where you can chat about things and can send pictures with it. They claim to delete the sent pictures when viewed from their servers (which I believe, since storing all of those pictures would take an enourmous amount of storage space, and it also has been verified once or twice). The app has 3 trackers in it
My plan to use it more privately is to set my profile on private (except for people I follow), only take photograps of the left half of my face (so I limit their facial recognition abilities), and set camera permission to Ask every time. Location (snapmap) will be turned off and any privacy toggles to disabled. I am on a grapheneos pixel 7.
What do you guys think? I will be using my real name on the platform, but with a simplelogin email and my always on VPN turned on. I know this isn’t a perfect and fully private solution but this should limit the data.
Does anyone have some other suggestions? I won’t be installing snapchat in a seperate profile I think, since that would take away too much convience in my opinion.
Thanks in advance and now I’m here, also thanks to the site contributors. Very helpful info out there!
