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
Once you delete your Snapchat account, it will first be deactivated for 30 days. You'll be automatically logged out and your account will be permanently deleted after 30 days.
If you log in again during those 30 days, the scheduled deletion of your account will be cancelled. So, if you wish to recover your deleted Snapchat account, just log back into the Snapchat app within 30 days of deactivating your account.
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
The Snapchat FAQ explicitly says that while your account is deactivated, you can only log in with your username and password. You can’t log in with your email address and you can’t change your password.
However, there is a way. Providing that you are trying to recover within 30 days, you can contact Snapchat support to help you with your recovery process. That said, there is no 100% guarantee that your account will be restored. It is worth trying, though.
Go over here and click I can't access my account > I forgot my password, and finally, click YES next to Need help with something else? A form will appear. Fill in the form and provide as much information as possible. The Snapchat team will reach out to you via email and assist you.
