Submission + - Snapchat Doesn't Delete Your Photos (theage.com.au)

An anonymous reader writes: So, apparently Snapchat stores its 'self-destructing' images in a cache on your flash storage. A data-recovery expert has pointed out that you could recover the deleted images with software, however a larger danger could be a system daemon designed to 'sniff out' Snapchat images, and then copy them elsewhere before the application trashes them.

Either way, if you Snapchat your junk, you might soon be sharing it with more than your sext-buddy.
