Is it Safe to install Apps like Snapchat Phantom and Scothman Snap on your device?
Well, according to the policy of the Build store clearly states that any app that is available on their store doesn’t harm the device or device owner by any means. According to the Build store, every app which is available on the Build store is already reviewed and tested internally for anything which can be vulnerable to the users.
On the other hand, the Build store doesn’t take any guarantee regarding the actions taken by the original developers of the apps. For instance, if you are using the tweaked version of Snapchat with your original Snapchat userID, then the developer’s of Snapchat might suspend y9our account o take any legal action against you for violating their policy, so this is solely dependent on the developer of the app and not the Build store.
By any means iHax is not promoting these apps to be used, it is solely dependent on the user whether they want to install it or not. ihax won’t be responsible for any action taken against the user for violation of any kind of policy or terms and conditions, do it at your own risk.
