No Such Thing As Temporary

The popularity of the mobile app Snapchat comes from the fact that the pictures and videos sent, go away. You can send a goofy, embarrassing picture and not worry about it making the rounds. Or take a quick snap of a document to send to a loved one to confirm information, without being concerned that a more ‘permanent’ image will float around with sensitive material. But this feeling of security is a false one. The app does have many advantages, and can be very fun to use. But hardly anything put out on the internet can be truly and permanently removed. This is an important fact to remember when dealing with the Internet Of Things. The best way to prevent someone from stealing your information, is to never put it out there in the first place.
