Here are the steps on how to deactivate your Snapchat account:
- Open the Snapchat app and go to your profile.
- Tap the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.
- Tap Account.
- Scroll down and tap Delete My Account.
- Enter your password and tap Delete My Account.
You will be given a warning that once you delete your account, your data will be permanently deleted and cannot be recovered. If you are sure you want to delete your account, tap Delete.
Your account will be deleted within 30 days. During this time, you can still reactivate your account by logging back in. However, if you don’t reactivate your account within 30 days, it will be permanently deleted.
Here are some things to keep in mind when deleting your Snapchat account:
- You will not be able to use your account until you reactivate it.
- All of your data, including your messages, friends, and Snapstreaks, will be deleted.
- If you have any pending friend requests, they will be canceled.
- If you have any scheduled Snaps, they will not be sent.
If you’re not sure whether you want to delete your account permanently, you can choose to temporarily disable it instead. This will hide your profile, messages, and Snapstreaks from other users, but your account information will still be stored by Snapchat. You can reactivate your account at any time by logging back in.
To temporarily disable your account:
- Follow the steps above to delete your account.
- Instead of tapping Delete My Account, tap Temporarily disable my account.
- Enter your password and tap Temporarily disable.
Your account will be disabled for 30 days. If you don’t reactivate it within 30 days, it will be permanently deleted.
I hope this helps!
