If there is one app that that is on almost every device out there, it´s Snapchat. It´s an app that you have so much fun using that you can´t help but ask yourself how you ever did without it. But, there are times when you get tired of using something, and you decide that it´s time to say goodbye. If that is your case with Snapchat, the following guide will show you how easy it is to delete your Snapchat account permanently.
Unfortunately, you can´t close your Snapchat account from the Snapchat app itself. You will need to follow a link and access that link by using either your laptop or your device´s browser. Keep in mind that your account will not disappear overnight. Every user receives 30 days to reactivate their account, just in case you regret your decision.
Permanently Erase Your Snapchat Account
There is a deactivation link that you will need to follow, and once you´re there, you will be asked to enter your username, password, and you will need to click on the box to confirm that you´re human. Once you´ve logged in you, have to enter your password and username again and towards the bottom select Delete my account.
What if you forgot your Snapchat password? Not to worry since you only need to go the Reset Password page, enter your Email address and click on the I´m not a not box, and you´re ready to go. Remember, if you don´t see the Email in your inbox, check to see if it was sent to the Spam folder since that has a tendency to happen.
Alternative Methos to Close Snapchat Account
Another way you can delete your Snapchat account is going to snapchat.com and scroll down to where it says Support. Now choose Learn the basics, Account Settings and now select Delete an Account.
Once you deactivate your account, don´t forget to uninstall the app from your phone. If you are iOS, you need to long-press on the app icon and then the icon is going to start dancing. Then tap on the minus on the upper left-hand corner and select delete.
If you are using Android, go to Settings > Applications > Applications Manager > Snapchat and then hit the install button. That way you won´t be tempted into accessing your account again. If you are using the latest version of Snapchat, you might want to look into the Memories feature that allows you to save your snaps onto your phone. I´m sure you probably took some nice snaps you would like to keep before deleting your Snapchat account.
Snapchat is one of the most popular apps out there, but that doesn´t mean that everyone is going to love it or get bored of it. If you´re one of those people that have had enough of Snapchat, now you know how to erase your account. So, why are you leaving Snapchat? Let me know in the comments.
