SnapChat recently changed their policies to no longer allow pornography and they have started banning accounts. What are you doing about it?

Edit:
Originally, I didn't explain who I am and why I created this poll. Sorry!

I'm an app developer considering making a new SnapChat-like app specifically for the camming community. The idea came about from a discussion with a camgirl on another forum she suggested that she'd like someone to...


Create an app comparable to Snapchat that allows porn & selling of your username. Make sure it doesn't auto-sync with phone contacts or add location services.

I've created this poll to find out what you are doing now given SnapChat's changes and if there is enough interest to justify developing such an app. In post #6 below, I've outlined some possible ideas for the app.

^Yep. I was just about to vote in the poll then I realised he's obviously developing a similar app and just wants free information and advice about the market.

He's easy to find. He uses the same display picture on other sites.

That being said, dude if you had just been transparent and said you are a developer and asked questions you would have probably gotten a much better answer. Transparency is key here. No bullshitting, no beating around the bush.

You're right, I should have introduced myself and my intentions. :-[

This is what I posted on (registration required):


SnapChat recently changed their policies to no longer allow pornography and I’ve seen a few reports from camgirls in this forum and others that they’ve been banned.

For now, it’s probably best to avoid getting paid using their Snapcash. Receiving many payments might be one of the flags they use find people violating their no-porn policy.

In a discussion with a camgirl she suggested that she’d like someone to…


Create an app comparable to Snapchat that allows porn & selling of your username. Make sure it doesn't auto-sync with phone contacts or add location services.

What do you think of the idea? If an app like that was available today, would you switch?

For those using SnapChat now, how concerned are you about losing Snapchat? If you did lose your account, how big a deal would it be to you?


The discussion was interesting, and helpful to me as well as a few camgirls that hadn't heard about SnapChat's new policy. I thought I'd ask basically the same question here as a poll to try and get more input. My bad for not giving the background and explaining why I was asking.

Of course I used the same username and photo. Why wouldn't I?

Thanks for the advice. Yes, I wanted the information because it would be useful to me. So that I'd know if camgirls/guys need an app developed specifically for the unique needs of this industry.

I get it. You don't want to help outsiders so they can make a buck of your hard work. I should have been completely upfront about why I was asking the question, especially since it was my first post on this forum.

Here are some of the ideas that I was thinking about including in free SnapChat-like app:


1. A Terms of Service that allows pornography and sexually explicit material.

2. Protected Your Privacy: no location data in your photos/videos or location services, no phone number required, and does not import your contacts

3. Subscription features so clients access is removed automatically if they don't renew. Renewal reminders so they remember to pay your for monthly subscriptions.

4. Watermarked photos/videos so people don't steal your stuff. Save photos/videos so you can re-send to other clients.

5. Verified accounts so you aren't imitated.

6. Any suggestions you might have.

My intension is to find out if there is a need for this type of app or not. Hopefully, you can appreciate that if I'm going to spend a lot of time and money building an app, I want to make sure there really is a need.

I hope you'll consider answering the poll now that you know why I'm asking.

Hello OP!

Are you willing to offer any incentives for helpful (i.e. not just sentence-long) responses to this thread? I'm thinking that perhaps if you get your app off the ground, you could offer free premium trial accounts to those who responded, or similar?

I'm not a camgirl, so I have no dog in this fight. Just felt like saying something positive after reading the responses in this thread!

Well I'd love to read your terms of service when you launch. Also if this is gonna be a porn distributor, you need to follow the 2257.
