Snapchat reacting to security breach

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Snapchat says it plans to put out a more secure version of its app following a breach earlier this week that allowed hackers to collect the usernames and phone numbers of some 4-million of its users.

The disappearing-messaging service popular with younger users said in a blog post late Thursday night that the updated version of its app will allow users to opt out of its "find friends" feature and would stem future attempts to abuse its service.

The breach occurred after security experts warned the company at least twice about vulnerability in its system.
