What are anti snap locks?

Lock snapping is where the lock cylinder is literally snapped in two by applying force to the cylinder.

An anti snap lock is made using a cylinder that has been designed to snap in a predetermined position leaving a portion of the cylinder that provides security and still require a key to open it intact. This defeats the lock snapping technique of easy access through the lock manipulation. Not sure what locks are installed in your property?

However there are many other lock manipulation techniques, like drilling and bumping, that can be used by professional burglars.
