Snapchat is a large social media platform with users from almost all age groups. Several USPs and exceptional customer service is what have got this platform where it is today. Here’s an excellent example of Snapchat’s adaptability and customer values: the snap feature itself! As many of you might know, the Snapchat icon is supposed to represent a snap, a ghost that is there one second and disappears the next.
However, users soon demanded that they be able to save snaps and save them to their camera roll. While this takes Snapchat in the opposite direction and could’ve potentially led the platform to a disgraceful downfall, they took the risk.
Today, Snapchat is among the top social media platforms of all time. And as far as the snap feature goes, you can now send a snap the receiver can save or modify the settings to make it disappear after opening.
However, having only one lifeline is never a good idea, and it looks like the creators at Snapchat are well aware of this fact. Other than snaps, there are other features of interest like the Snap Map, bitmojis, snapstreaks, Star SignCompatibility, and birthstones.
If you’re a teenager looking to make new friends online or just want to connect with friends, Snapchat is the way to go! You’ll find other like-minded people, create and customize fun snaps, and make a bitmoji avatar with the newest fashion trends!
If there’s one thing Snapchat values more than customer service, it’s customer privacy and security. After the Great Data Breach of ’19, there haven’t been any more leaks, but you can’t be too careful, right?
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss what causes the “Oops something went wrong, try again later” error on Snapchat. Keep reading till the end of this blog to learn all there is to know about it!
How to Fix “Oops Something went wrong, try again later” on Snapchat
Let’s say that you’re logging in to your Snapchat account on your new smartphone or have just re-installed it on your current device. As you press the Log In button at the bottom of the screen, an error message saying Something went wrong, try again later in red appears.
You recheck your login credentials, but it still doesn’t change. What would you do next in a frustrating situation such as this?
Don’t worry because we’ve got the perfect solution(s) for you. Read on to learn a few tips and tricks to fix this error message.
1. Check your internet connection
If you see an error message on Snapchat, check your device’s internet connection.
If there’s a chance your internet connection might be responsible for any errors, connect to a stable connection or Wi-Fi before moving on to the next steps.
2. Check Snapchat’s servers
Snapchat is a large social media platform with hundreds of millions of users. It’s not uncommon for their servers to malfunction a little every once in a while.
To check if it’s the Snapchat servers or just your account/device/internet connection, hit up at least three friends and ask them if the app is working on their devices.
If that’s not something you’d like to do, you can just go on Twitter. The platform hosts a surprisingly high number of people who’re quick to share their grievances.
If the problem is with the servers, many other users will come forward as soon as you tweet the issue.
3. Check for any updates on Play Store/App Store
If the Snapchat app is showing more and more errors on your device daily, there’s a good chance that it’s in serious need of some updating.
Check Play Store for Android devices and App Store for iOS devices for app updates for Snapchat.
4. Restart Snapchat on your smartphone
One of the best fixes to any smartphone issues is just to restart the device.
If you’re an Android user, you should do exactly that. If you have an iOS smartphone, go to your Recents tab and remove Snapchat, stopping the app from working.
You can also uninstall and re-install the Snapchat app itself as an added measure.
5. Turn off your VPN
VPNs are secure networks that basically protect you and your device from a potential tracking risk. However, some VPNs come with side effects, too.
They don’t work well with other apps and often disrupt their network activity.
6. Report the issue to the Snapchat team
If none of these tricks work on your account/device, it looks like small tricks aren’t going to cut it.
At this point, we recommend sending a serious email to the Snapchat team explaining the issue. Request immediate assistance in the end, and don’t forget your Snapchat username and password for their convenience.
In the end

There’s more than one answer for why you’re seeing the Oops something went wrong, try again later error message on Snapchat, and we’ve talked about most of them today. However, if none of those tricks work for you, you can always go directly to Snapchat to address this issue.
