Let us begin with an interesting Question.
Why Should You View Someone’s Snapchat Story?
Well, take the scenario that you are a parent and your children use Snapchat. You know that your kids would even share private images to third parties which always may not be a safe thing to do.
Sometimes after sharing images, your children could be blackmailed or become vulnerable to certain attacks. So how do you know what your kids do on Snapchat without them knowing that you are monitoring?
On the other hand, a discouraging feature with Snapchat is that when you take a screenshot of an image the sender of the image gets notified about the screenshot. This will make the sender think that you are spying on him/her. Therefore, taking screenshots is not a wise option.
Moreover, Snapchat regularly checks its app through software testing to detect and weed out the possible presence of bugs. Also, Snapchat is also becoming smarter in handling hacking issues. But all these don’t have any say on anonymously watching others’ stories.
