The Anonymous Indian hackers claim that they have posted the personal details of 1.7 million Snapchat users on the deep web which they obtained from hacking the Snapchat. This is done in response to the Snapchat’s CEO allegedly calling India as a “poor country”.
The Snapchat denies that any hack has really taken place, and they also deny that CEO Evan Spiegel has ever said the app was “only for rich people” and not for “poor countries like Spain and India”, as the Variety magazine reported.
This hasn’t stopped any if the angry Indian consumers from dragging the app’s rating straight from five stars down to one on the Apple store and Google Play store. They even launched #BoycottSnapchat and #UninstallSnapchat campaigns on Twitter, and also allegedly compromised nearly 2 million accounts.
A spokesperson from the $25 billion app said in a statement: “This is ridiculous. Obviously, Snapchat is for everyone. It’s available worldwide to download for free.”
