Billionaire entrepreneur and Dallas Mavs owner Mark Cuban is the man behind Cyber Dust, a mobile messaging app that aims to be as secure and private as possible. In an interview with Business Insider, he explains why Snapchat is a huge mistake if you care about your privacy and don’t want those seemingly “private” dick pics to come back and haunt you.
Business Insider also reached out to Snapchat for a response. Here’s what they said:
Snapchat’s response: Not clear on what the context is around [Mark Cuban’s statement], but when we say it’s “deletion by default” it is because it’s closer to regular conversations. You can always record a conversation, but ordinarily you wouldn’t. Snapchat is more about the social norms and expectation than secrecy.
