I think the best rule of thumb is to never take or send a photograph that you don't care if it's out there for the world to see. There are too many ways for someome to intercept those images for their own use and you have no control over what happens to them. The app is called Snaphack. It is in no way affiliated with Snapchat, the cost is $.99 and you will have no way of knowing the photo was opened, screenshot or hacked. Normally snapchat will let the sender know if the recipient tries to screenshot the picture. In this case because it is a 3rd party app, snapchat has no way of knowing it was opened or grabbed. So just don't send risque photos and you won't have to worry about it.
