Wondering whether there is a way to recover your deleted Snapchat account? Let's find out!

So you have changed your mind and now you want to recover your Snap account. We have good news and bad news for you. The good news is that you can recover a deleted Snapchat account. However, the bad news is that not all accounts are recoverable.

Read on to find out whether your account is recoverable or not and if it is, how to recover it. Let's get started!

How to recover deleted Snapchat account

When you choose to delete your Snapchat account, it goes through a deactivation period of 30 days.

During this time, your account remains inactive, and you will be automatically logged out. After the 30-day deactivation period, your account will be permanently deleted.

If you log in again at any point during the 30-day deactivation period, the scheduled deletion of your account will be cancelled. So, if you decide to recover your deleted Snapchat account, simply log back into it before the 30 days are up.

It is worth mentioning that it may take up to 24 hours for a deactivated account to be reactivated.

How to recover deleted Snapchat account after 30 days

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a deleted Snapchat account if 30 days have passed.

As we mentioned above, after 30 days, your account will be permanently deleted. This means that your account, account settings, friends, chats, and everything associated with your account in the Snapchat database will be deleted.

In other words, your account will not exist on Snap's servers after 30 days, and therefore, it is impossible to restore it. Your only option is to create a new account and start fresh.

How to recover deleted Snapchat account without password or email
