It feels good to share. Whether it’s posting pictures, writing status updates, or telling a story through your Snapchat Stories, sharing has become an integral part of our culture. That’s why when you delete your account on Snapchat, it can feel like you’re giving up the connection with your friends and followers. But if you want some peace of mind and don’t want to worry about getting hacked by someone else taking over your account, it might be time for you to delete your account. Here is everything that you need to know about deleting your account on Snapchat.
What is Snapchat?
Snapchat is a mobile messaging app where you can send and receive images, no more than 10 seconds at a time, that disappear after being viewed.
This makes it easy to share the moment with your friends or followers without worrying about someone stealing the photo.
If you want to delete your account on Snapchat, it’s important that you understand what Snapchat is and what it does. It’s also important that you know how to properly secure your account so hackers don’t take over your account.
Deleting your account on Snapchat
It can be pretty difficult to delete your account on Snapchat, but it’s not impossible. Here are some things to know before you go ahead and delete your account:
- It will take up to 30 days for the account to be permanently deleted from the app.
- You will no longer receive notifications from your friends after deleting your account so that you don’t get hacked or have unwanted messages sent to you again.
- Your friends may still see you in their Discover section, as long as they have not removed you from the list of people who appear in their “Who’s Nearby” section.
- You can continue to post content on Snapchat Stories for a bit longer even after deleting your account because the content will remain stored in their servers for a period of time after deletion. This is also true for any Snaps or Stories that were posted before you deleted your account, which means that people won’t be able to view them anymore either once they’ve been deleted- this includes any stories you posted before deleting your account and any stories that were posted while you had an active account on Snapchat.
Troubleshooting your deletion
Before you delete your account, make sure that you have successfully removed all of the stories, pictures, and videos from your account. A common issue with Snapchat accounts is that the stories don’t go away when you delete your account. If this happens to you, then follow these steps:
– Go to your settings
– Select “Save” on the top right corner
– Press “Uploads” on the left side of the screen
– Press “Delete” at the bottom of the screen
Once you delete your account on Snapchat, you will be unable to see the snaps that you sent or received. So if you have an important story to share with your friends and followers, make sure that the story is saved before deleting your account.
If you’ve made it this far, you’re probably wondering how to delete your account on Snapchat. For starters, we recommend using the following steps:
- Open up the app on your phone
- Find the profile icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and tap it
- Scroll down and find “Settings” then “Your Account”
- Tap “Delete My Account”
- Wait for a confirmation message to pop up indicating that your account has been deleted
