How to Reactivate Your Snapchat Account

You can always reactivate your Snapchat account within 30 days of deactivating it if you change your mind about deleting it. Sign in with your Snapchat username (not your email address) and password via the app or website to reactivate your account.

If you recently deactivated your account and are attempting to reactivate it, you may be required to wait up to 24 hours until the deactivation process is complete (according to Snapchat).

If you verified your email address on your account, you should receive an email when your account is deactivated successfully. Sign in to your account to reactivate it after receiving this message.

  • You want to change your Snapchat username.
  • You have too many friends and want to start over with a fresh account, rather than going through them all and deleting them.
