✎ Key Takes:

» You have the option to delete an unopened message or Snap on Snapchat, making it invisible to others, and the message will be erased from both ends.

» To manually delete messages, navigate to the Chats section, tap and hold the message, and select the “Delete” option.

» Utilize the “After Viewing” tool to automatically delete Snaps after they are viewed. This ensures that snaps remain in the Chat for 30 days until viewed, and once viewed, they are deleted within 24 hours.

What Happens When You Delete An Unopened Snapchat:

There are a few things that happen when you delete an unopened snap:

1. The Person Would Not see the Message

If you delete a snap on Snapchat before the recipient views the message, it will be removed from the chat screen, rendering it invisible to the person in the future.

Once the message is deleted, a tag indicating that you deleted the message will be displayed. This means the person won’t be able to view the original message or the Snap. Instead, they will see the tag indicating that you deleted a message.

2. Your Message is Deleted from both ends

Deleting chat messages results in the removal of the messages from both ends, preventing you from accessing them again.

After sending a snap, tap, hold the message, and press “Delete.” This action ensures the deletion of the message from both ends. Even if the recipient cannot view the Snap within 30 days, it will also be removed from the chats.

3. You’ll Get a Notification

The recipient might receive a notification that you sent them a snap, but upon attempting to open it, they will encounter a message indicating that the snap has been deleted.

4. Removed from your Chat History

If the recipient has not opened the snap, it will be erased from your chat history with them, making it inaccessible to you as well.

💁🏽‍♂️ Note:

▸ Once a snap has been opened, the sender can no longer delete it, and it will persist in the recipient’s chat history until they decide to remove it.

▸ Additionally, if you’ve saved a snap to your Memories before sending it, deleting the snap won’t eliminate it from your Memories. However, the snap will no longer be visible to the recipient.
