Snapchat wants you to trust it with cash the same way you trust it with photos.

On Tuesday, Nov. 18, Snapchat released Snapcash, a way to send friends cash through Snapchat’s messaging app. The milestone is thanks to its first partnership with a different company, in this case, Square.

Snapchat is a mobile app that allows you to send photos and messages that self-destruct after a certain period of time.

But you shouldn’t worry about getting your credit card hacked the same way Snapchat was hacked for almost 13 gigabytes worth of photos, according to Business Insider.

Mobile payment company Square is handling the payment portion of Snapcash. “We set out to make payments faster and more fun, but we also know that security is essential when you’re dealing with money,” said Snapchat in a blog post. “Square has a ton of experience in this area and our teams have been hard at work to make Snapcash a great experience for everyone.”
