12:00 am – 1:00 am EDT
11:00 pm – 12:00 am CDT (Friday, October 20th)

June 23-24 – The Snap Surveys website will be undergoing system maintenance on Saturday June 24, between 01:00-03:00 BST (20:00-22:00 EST, June 23). This 2 hour scheduled maintenance window will include a service interruption lasting up to 30 minutes. We apologise for any inconvenience this work may cause, however, these changes are necessary to help Snap Surveys to continue to deliver optimal performance and reliability for our services.
June 4 – A vulnerability has been identified that may affect the security of communications with our web services for users with older browsers. As of Sunday June 4 our website will no longer accept connections from browsers requiring the DES or 3DES ciphers. The main impact of these changes will be on Windows XP users using Internet Explorer. Traffic from this setup represents less than a quarter of a percent of all communications with our web services so it’s very unlikely you will experience any negative effects. Our advice is that anyone continuing to use Windows XP beyond its supported lifetime uses an alternative browser that supports more modern ciphers.
