Steps to delete Snapchat account

Want to start fresh with a new Snapchat account? Or maybe you’ve found yourself sharing more content on Instagram and TikTok over the years? Whatever the reason, we have put together this guide to teach you how to delete Snapchat.

To delete your account, you must first deactivate it. If you change your mind during this time, you can easily reactivate it by logging back in. After 30 days, your deactivated account will be permanently deleted, which means your snaps, chats, stories, friends, settings, and data will be permanently lost.

For this reason, you probably want to download your data before deleting your account. Once you’ve got all your chats and memories back, follow the steps below to permanently delete your Snapchat account on iOS, or scroll to the end of this guide to delete it via Android or a web browser.
