Are you tired of Snapchat? The application allows you, if you wish, to turn the page permanently by deleting your account. But contrary to what one might think, the procedure is not homogeneous. If you have an iPhone, everything can be done from the Snapchat app. But if you have an Android smartphone, it’s different.
Note that if you want to change your username in Snapchat, there is no need to delete everything to start from scratch. The messaging tool provides tools so that you can display a new identity without having to perform complex manipulations. Choose well: changing the username is only allowed once a year.

How to Delete Snapchat Account on Android
Oddly enough, Snapchat provides a different route on Android to delete an account. You need to go through the site, not the app — perhaps a future update will correct this discrepancy to standardize the user experience. However, handling remains simple. You can do it from a computer or even through your phone’s browser.
- Meeting on the Snapchat website;
- Enter your username and password;
- Choose line ” Delete my account ” ;
- Confirm by entering your password.
To deactivate your Snapchat account
Snapchat does not provide any option to deactivate one’s account. If you don’t want to use the app anymore, but don’t want to delete everything, stop using it or uninstall it from your phone. You can always re-download Snapchat and find your account later. It can be a good in-between.
The only time your account is disabled is during deletion. As soon as you request the deletion of your account, it is deactivated for a period of 30 days. At the end of this month, everything is then erased. This four-week period is a safety period to give you time to change your mind, if you ever feel that it is finally excessive.
The reactivation of the Snapchat account during these 30 days is done by logging into his account.
