So while it's still a better option than simply sending a pic through i Message, it's still not the best idea.If you insist on using Snapchat for sexts, please only send to someone you really trust and don't include your face.

First of all, there is an option to make sure people can't screenshot your image...

and if they do, they'll only get a tiny portion of the image where your finger was. You need to know the person's phone number for extra privacy.

But the best feature of all is that it gives users a window to decide to un-send the message - if they decide they just made a mistake with that pic, they can cancel it.

The user will still get a message, but it will just say that the pic was deleted. Why this isn't more popular than Snapchat, I don't know.

It’s usually something I don’t advise doing – any kind of text or image that can easily be saved by another person is always risky because it can always come back to haunt you.

I’ve heard way too many naked picture horror stories (one of my good friends was blackmailed with them by her ex for years after they broke up) to not be wary about it. I know sexting is a huge trend and that a lot of people participate in it.

Some people stick with dirty texts to set the mood, while others go all out with provocative pictures.

Like I said, it’s not the best idea – but if you’re going to do it, you might as well do it safely.

That means there are rules you should follow: 1) don’t send a naked picture. If you want to send a pic, send one with your clothes on and probably don’t show your face.
