The news comes as security experts warned against manually reversing the latest SnapChat update to return to the old design. But the update, which is now available in the US, has drawn criticism from users.

Late past year, as part of CEO Evan Spiegel's planned update to Snapchat, the company said that it would build monetization and distribution options that would encourage creators to continue to use the app.

Numerous introduced "new features" are of no use or kills the actual purposes Snapchat had been used for the past years.

More than Five lac seventy-eight thousand users have signed an online petition by Monday midday, asking the parent company Snap to roll back the redesign, which was unveiled last week. Influential users like Kylie Jenner, Chrissy Teigen, and MKBHD have all expressed frustration with the new design.

It continued: 'Separating social from media has allowed us to build the best way to communicate with friends and the best way to watch great content, while addressing numerous problems that plague the Internet today'.

Twitter was bombarded with the angry reactions of many teens who love Snapchat and is their favourite application.

The Snapchat redesign might not seem so bad for users who are just now trying out the app, but existing users find it annoying, confusing, and cluttered.

One user tweeted: "The new update to Snapchat makes my brain hurts. if I wanted to watch a bunch of paid commercials I would turn on my TV".

Even Burger King UK tweeted about the Snapchat update and its dislike for it. Some users who complained against the app also said the update happened automatically and also deleted some of their archived messages.

Twitter was even provided by the steps from users to uninstall the update and to get the older version back.
