Photo-messaging app Snapchat is reportedly rolling out a new feature called “clear chats” that will allow users to delete messages from personal and group chat-threads.

The new feature is aimed at making people more comfortable sending sensitive information over Snapchat.

This could also check cases of revenge porn and blackmails where hackers or others threat and expose abusive conversations and personal images, TechCrunch reported on Monday.

“Hold down on a text, image, video, memory, sticker or audio note in a one-on-one or group chat, you’ll see a ‘delete’ button. Tap it and Snapchat will try to retract the message, though it admits it won’t always work if the recipient lacks an internet connection or updated version of the app,” the report added.

This feature may boost the app usage after it hit its slowest growth rate ever last quarter beacuse of Snapchat’s globally criticised redesign.

Cyber attacks and breaches are becoming a daily occurrence. Targeted attacks by skilled and persistent cyber criminals are now a business reality.

A cyber attack is deliberate exploitation of computer systems, technology-dependent enterprises and networks. Cyber attacks use malicious code to alter computer code, logic or data, resulting in disruptive consequences that can compromise data and lead to cyber crimes, such as information and identity theft.

Cyber attack is also known as a computer network attack (CNA).

Cyber attacks have become more sophisticated and attackers use a variety of tactics:

  • Social engineering: manipulation through phishing, vishing, smishing, etc.
  • Malware: malicious software that damages your computer network or information.
  • Ransomware, including Petya, WannaCry and NotPetya.
