This is where all those nude pictures you’ve got saved in your secret photo vault could come in handy.If you press the same button you did to take the photograph and keep it pressed down, you can take a video of up to 10 seconds.
Anyone who has your phone number can send you a message on Snapchat but if you only want your Snapchat friends (the people you have accepted) to be able to do so, change your 'Who Can Send Me Snaps' settings to 'My Friends.' Apart from finding people from your contacts list, in order to make connections on Snapchat, you have to know the person's username.
So if there is anyone in particular you would like to be Snapchat friends with, go ahead and ask them for their Snapchat username.
The video can also be edited as with pictures, with emojis, text and doodles.
If your partner is up for it, Snapchat now provides a new service whereby when the yellow 'send' button turns blue, indicating that your partner is also currently in Snapchat, and if both parties hold down the blue button at the same time, a Snapchat live chat will ensue, kind of like Facetime.
In case your thumb starts to hurt (or you need both hands free) you can drag the icon of yourself to the bottom middle of the screen to the lock sign and the live chat will continue.
What if you want to send nudes but don't really feel comfortable and prefer to cover your private parts?
You can however choose to save the chat, and if either user does this, the chat is saved for both parties. Take a photo of yourself by pressing the round button at the bottom of the screen.
You can turn the camera around by clicking the top right icon.
Other than that (and unless the other person has set up a camera to record his phone (in which case, a restraining order is in order) and if everyone adheres to the rules, it should be the safest form of sexting. When sexting photos of yourself to someone that they can keep, they can always go back and look at these photos whenever they please.
