In the wake of a massive consumer data breach, the photo messaging app Snapchat hired its first Washington lobbyists last week, according to forms released Monday. Snapchat will be represented on Capitol Hill by the firm of Heather Podesta, a major Democratic campaign contributor and former congressional aide.
Podesta's firm, Heather Podesta + Partners, will focus on issues related to communications policy, technology and consumer protection and will "educate policymakers regarding [Snapchat's] operation and practices," according to the registration form.
Snapchat's new lobbyists could hardly arrive at a better time. On Dec. 31, a website called SnapchatDB.info released the usernames and phone numbers of 4.6 million Snapchat users, which it said had been acquired by exploiting a flaw in the app's privacy protections.
A massive breach by any standards, the release of personal information was especially embarrassing for Snapchat, whose appeal is based on the idea that photos shared via the app disappear after a short time.
Unlike some other recent consumer data breaches, however, the goal of the Snapchat hack wasn't to gain access to credit card numbers or other financial data. According to the hackers, their goal was merely to "raise public awareness on how reckless many internet companies are with user information." To prove their intent, the hackers redacted the last two digits of each phone number they posted.
