Snapchat Rolls Out Rebuilt Android App

Well-funded surveillance operation infected both iOS and Android devices

"Though different versions of the app vary in structure, malicious code was initialised at application launch without the user's knowledge, and a number of timers were set up to gather and upload data periodically", said Adam Bauer, a senior security intelligence engineer at Lookout. If you want to get onto the Nintendo Switch Online app, a link to the Google Play Store can be found here, and a link to the Apple Store version can be found here.

San Francisco: Immediately after spyware-maker Connexxa's infamous app "Assistenza SIM" was caught abusing the iOS enterprise certificate to bypass Apples App Store guidelines, the iPhone-maker revoked its enterprise certificate, making it un-installable on iOS devices.

The company had been working on this new version for Android users since the beginning of 2018. The new rebuild app is started to roll out to users in some regions and will reach globally soon.

On the heels of the raft of new features announced during the Snap Partner Summit 2019 the other day, Snapchat has announced on Twitter that the "new, faster" app is ready to go, complete with an adorable little GIF. The whole goal of the rebuild of the app is to make the Snapchat using experience more smoother with 20% speed improvement in opening time of the app when compared to older launching times. To make sure that updates are running bug-free now and in the future, Snapchat is testing them on a larger number of Android-powered devices. The Snapchat has become more than just a photo or message sharing app over the past few years.

While there are virtually no changes to the actual UI or navigation for Snapchat, the new app should be faster, less laggy, and less buggy than the old version.
