To Delete Snapchat Account, you need a great deal of courage but if you have decided to do something good for you, you gotta do it.

You see, Snapchat gets very addictive when you get used to it. The filters and the whole concept of Snapchat is really addictive. Actually, Snapchat was the first app that came up with the Idea of “Stories” where photo or video remains for 24 Hours only. But now, every social media platform are coming up with their version of Stories.

Anyways, if you have any reason to start fresh or just to cut off your Social Networks or anything, you may be looking to delete the Snapchat account. Uninstalling is not the way to start fresh.

If you really wanted to delete Snapchat account, you need to do some steps.

Snapchat now offers you to download data of your Snapchat account. Before permanently deleting the Snapchat account, you can download Snapchat data of your account.
