Snapchat

If any messaging service represents the meaning of “carpe diem”, it must be Snapchat. This application is known for its temporary nature. Messages, pictures and videos will disappear forever some seconds after the recipient takes a look at them. And just as your messages dissolve in a heart beat, Snapchat has made it as fast and simple for your whole account to disappear forever too.

Are you ready to let your Snapchat account go? Whether you have been naughty or nice, sometimes your best bet is to let go and start clean. Whatever your reason for leaving may be, we are here to help you through the process. There are two ways to access Snapchat’s account deletion page.

How to delete your Snapchat account (method 1)

  • Enter your username and password.
  • Check the box to confirm you are not a robot.
  • Select “Log in”.
  • Enter your username and password once again.
