The huge breach of information that Snapchat suffered through a couple weeks ago was pretty embarrassing for them. What makes things worse is that Snapchat actually admitted to knowing about the flaw in their security months before the breach happened. Well Snapchat has finally apologized for the leak, and they’ve offered users a way to protect themselves.

Users can now opt out of the “find friend” feature, which disconnects their phone number from their username, allowing their information to be kept much more safe. In a blog post detailing the new update, Snapchat said that the option “is available in Settings > Mobile #” and that the update “also requires new Snapchatters to verify their phone number before using the Find Friends service.”
