It’s no shame to delete Snapchat. I mean, really, when you compare it to other apps that are out there vying for our attention, it doesn’t quite stack up. TikTok, Instagram, Twitter… these are the apps that really know how to keep us coming back for more.
When Snapchat first came out in 2012, it was a pioneer in the world of apps. It allowed users to send photos, videos, and messages that would disappear after a certain number of seconds. This was something that had never been done before, and it quickly caught on with people who wanted a more ephemeral way to communicate.
But if you’re no longer interested in using Snapchat, deleting your account is a quick and easy process.
How to delete your Snapchat account
- Open your web browser and open Snapchat.
- Then Log in to your account.
- Go to Manage My Account and click Delete my Account.
- Enter your username and password to confirm your decision.
- Click continue.
And that’s all she wrote. You’ll get an email confirming that your account has been deactivated. As Snapchat notes, “After taking the steps to delete your account, it will first be deactivated for 30 days. While your account is deactivated, your friends will not be able to contact or interact with you on Snapchat.” Just don’t forget to delete the app from your phone.
