14Do Delete Your Messages After Sending Them

Once a sext is sent out, it’s impossible to get rid of all of the evidence, because half of it the information on another person’s phone. Even if naked pictures are sent over Snapchat, the recipient can screenshot the photo and keep it for as long as they’d like.

Although you don’t have total control over deleting the messages, it’s always a good idea to get rid of all of the evidence from your side of the conversation. If you’re an iPhone user, you should be especially careful. If you take nude photos on it, make sure to delete them from every album that they’re saved under. It’s easy to forget about the “recently deleted” folder, but any photos that are contained within it are capable of being restored, so you need to empty it out as often as you can.
