Snapchat CEO Arrogance: Snapchat row continues with India as it hit hackers now. Indian Hackers claim that they found a bug in Snapchat which they have found last year. They claim that, because of the Snapchat CEO Speigel’s arrogance, they released 1.7 Million Snapchat users data which is now available on Darknet. This came after the CEO of Snapchat, Evan Speigel called India, “A Poor Country” to expand.

According to Indian hackers, they had found vulnerability in Snapchat database last year and had siphoned details of 1.7 million users. Hackers leaked and made this data based available on the darknet to mark their resentment against company’s remark for India. The incident was never mentioned by Snapchat and they didn’t confirm any leak or vulnerability for the hacked data.

Snapchat CEO Arrogance Made Indian Hackers leak Snapchat Users Data:

After the word from Snapchat CEO calling India a poor country, Indian Snapchat users were outraged and set social media on fire by sharing trolls against Evan Speigel and Snapchat. Many Indian users mistook Snapdeal for Snapchat and uninstalled Snapdeal. There were two hashtags like #Uninstall_Snapchat, #BoycottSnapchat started trending on twitter.

The users who didn’t even installed the app atleast once were going to app stores to give it a one star rating and uninstalling it, after Variety magazine quoted a former employee claiming that Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel had said in a meeting in September 2015 that this app isn’t meant for poor countries like India and Spain.

The performance in app store went too low. The rating for Snapchat is 1.5 star after many users gave it a 1 star.


An international Spokesperson of Snap Inc. said in a statement, “This is ridiculous. Obviously, Snapchat is for everyone! It’s available worldwide to download for free. Those words were written by a disgruntled former employee. We are grateful for our Snapchat community in India and around the world.” It also added that, “The employee who made the claim was “fired for poor performance,” three weeks ago and has been involved in a lawsuit with the company.”
