Can we Use Other Third-Party Apps?

Do not believe any app which claims to save the Snapchat videos directly to your gallery. Believe me, these are scam apps and they can steal your data. The play store contains hundreds of apps that contain malware. Be aware of these kinds of apps.

Some of the apps may work for some time but Snapchat will block that particular application. Snapchat is trying to block all kinds of such apps. So, be aware of these kinds of scammers and don't install these applications on your smartphone.

As I said, the Play store has many well-known apps that contain millions of installations but they steal your data and sell them to other third-party companies.

These apps compromise with your privacy and if you want to know about these apps then you can read my article on malicious android app lists in 2020 and remove them from your phone.
