Edward Snowden, the former computer security consultant for the National Security Agency or NSA, has advised against using Reddit, Inc.

What Happened: Reddit, a social media platform that has been in the spotlight for various reasons, including its IPO and its role in the WallStreetBets saga, is now facing criticism from Snowden.

On Tuesday, Snowden took to X, formerly Twitter to express his concerns about Reddit’s new login requirements. He shared a screenshot suggesting that the platform now asks for identification when users attempt to access it while logged out.
