@sebyddd Does using a service like this not violate the Snap/IG Terms of Service?

@rossdcurrie Great question Ross! Our users’ security is our top priority. We have developed our own architecture around the official interfaces and interact with the social platforms just as you would as a regular user. We’re not utilizing any unauthorized APIs, thus we’re not putting your account’s security at risk.

@sebyddd That's a very carefully-worded response, but as far as I can see you're an unauthorised third party application, using the applications' official APIs in an unauthorised way. Snapchat ToS: https://www.snap.com/en-US/terms/ >9. Your Account > * You will not log in or attempt to access the Services through unauthorized third-party applications or clients. Instagram Terms of Use: https://help.instagram.com/47874... > Basic Terms >10. You must not access Instagram's private API by means other than those permitted by Instagram While I understand that this service provides desired functionality to a certain user group, it basically violates platform ToS's in the same way that Instagress did, and users of Storyheap run the risk of having their accounts permanently banned. Given Instagram's recent crack-down on services like this, as they fight to combat bots on their network, what's the long-term business strategy here? It seems like only a matter of time before they shut you down.

@rossdcurrie @sebyddd interested to know if they use some sort of device emulator as an API workaround.
@rossdcurrie Ross, I don't think you fully understood my carefully-worded message 😊. As I previously mentioned, we are not using APIs from either of the social platforms. We are interacting with the platforms through their official interfaces. As we're helping some of the world's biggest brands, we definitely can't take any security risk. Likewise Instagram, we are 100% against spamming and we have our own filters for preventing that. However, that is clearly not the intended purpose of our product.
