How do you delete chats on Snapchat on iPhone and Android?

Ever since I started using Snapchat on my iPhone, I’ve always wanted to have the option to disable deleting chats on Snapchat. Initially, I liked the app for its disappearing chat message option. But after a while, I wanted to have the ability to save Snapchat messages to view them in the future. Even I stopped using this Ghost messaging app because there was no option to disable delete chats in Snapchat app.

Fortunately, one of my Snapchat geek friends suggested several methods for saving certain chat messages on Snapchat. While there is no permanent option to deactivate delete chats on Snapchat, there are simple tricks to save Snapchat messages from iPhone. I tried those methods and they worked great. Let me share both methods with other searchers.

How do you delete chats on Snapchat on iPhone and Android?

Remark: Make sure your Snapchat app is updated to the latest version.

Method 1: Select and Save Chats Forever on Snapchat

  1. Open the Snapchat app.
  2. Open the chat conversation.
  3. Press and hold the message.
  4. Tap Save to Chat.

That is it.

After you follow the above step, the chat line will be saved in the Snapchat chat message forever. You can unsave the chat again by going through the same process. However, pressing and tapping Save to Chat for each chat message will annoy some users. Still, there is another way to save Snapchat chat.

Method 2: Keep Snapchat Messages for 24 Hours

Snapchat has the Chat Settings option to see a chat message 24 hours after viewing. Here’s how to enable it.

  1. Launch the Snapchat app.
  2. Open the chat window.
  3. Then tap the person’s chat on hold.
  4. Select Chat Settings.
  5. Tap Delete Chat… select 24 Hours After View.

That is it.

After selecting the Delete Chat 24 Hours After View option, the chat with that person will be visible 24 hours after viewing. After that, it will automatically be gone forever.

For example, Snapchat users can keep chat messages for 24 hours or permanently. There is no specific option available in the app to disable Delete Chats in Snapchat.
