Snapchat Account of Kylie Jenner was Hacked

 

Dare to bare! Kylie Jenner took on Twitter on July 23rd, Sunday, sharing a warm selfie after her Snapchat account was hacked.

 

It has been little more than a year since Kylie Jenner became victim of a Twitter hack, wherein a user sent out nasty messages to her millions of followers. Unfortunately, it looks like that the social media of the reality star has been hacked again and this time, on Snapchat.

Fans found yesterday (July 23rd, Sunday) that Snap stories of Kylie contained some dubious content. According to screenshots, a Snap code for a user called "chikri95" was showing up in the account of the beauty mogul, claiming to have nude images of Kylie. Other strange images then appeared including images of tweets from the same user, claiming to have access to nude images.

 

It was shared with exciting title: 'add for Kylie's nudes!! twitter "chikri98." On alleged culprits's Twitter account, they have posted: 'I GOT KYLIES NUDES AHAHHA.' No personal pictures of Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was released. The alleged hacker has provided an update after 1 hr.

 

Dailymail.co.uk posted on July 23rd, 2017, stating that Kylie has reacted to these posts on another social media platform as she took to her Snapchat for sharing one short clip with pink filter.

 

In this case, no personal images were shared and the hacker later posted on Twitter that ultimately they did not have any nude images. As a result of this hack, it looks that though the Twitter account of the suspect has been suspended but the Snapchat of Kylie has been restored to normal.

 

However, this is a good reminder to all to ensure that you are doing best to protect yourself from being hacked on social media. You must avoid using really common passwords and ensure that you use different passwords for different social media accounts. You should always allow two-factor authentication on platforms, where it is permitted and never disclose your passwords to anyone. Although celebrities are surely at more vulnerable to hacks because of their stardom and popularity, it can happen to anyone and so, you should always be very careful.
