Snapchat is well-known among teenagers and young adults alike. It offers an entirely different set of features that haven’t ever been seen on the Internet before. Top-notch privacy and security, along with cool graphics and design, attracted young users like moths to a flame. However, privacy and security concerns are an afterthought, not the initial cause for interest. The unique idea of sending an image to anyone around the world without any trace of it intrigued users.
Snaps brought forth a world of media sharing with friends that no one had explored. However, more than the snap feature is needed to sustain an entire platform. Snapstreaks, for example, was a great addition to the snap feature. Basically, you had to send a snap to another user every day, without fail, to maintain your snapstreak. If either of you forgets to send a snap to the other for longer than 243 hours, your streak will break.
Now, everyone knows snapstreaks are virtually useless numbers that don’t have any value whatsoever. To make a streak, you must send a snap to someone for three consecutive days! Still, people went mad if and when their streaks died.
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss how you can know whether or not someone has uninstalled Snapchat from their device. To learn all about it, keep reading until the end!
How to Know If Someone Uninstalled Snapchat
We all have friends on Snapchat that we regularly snap or chat with. Your close friends must have long streaks with you, which neither of you wants to break. Over time, a streak evolves into something more significant.
So, you religiously send one snap to all your friends daily to maintain your streak. However, today, something’s different. Your friend only has six hours to renew your streak, and they will sleep soon anyway. What’s the matter with them?
One plausible explanation is that they’ve deleted the Snapchat app from their smartphone. Otherwise, they could’ve seen the hundreds of chats you’ve sent them in the last two hours, right?
But you’re still unsure whether or not Snapchat is installed on their phone.
If you’re in a similar situation, we understand how perplexing that can be. However, don’t worry; we’re here to help you, and that’s what we’ll do. Although there’s no feature or option on Snapchat that can tell you if someone has uninstalled Snapchat from their smartphone, you can look out for a couple of signs.
Here’s how you can tell if someone has uninstalled Snapchat
Although there’s no way to confirm someone has uninstalled Snapchat other than directly asking them about it.
Their bitmoji disappears from the Snap Map
The first sign that they’ve probably uninstalled Snapchat from their smartphone is that their bitmoji disappears from the Snap Map.
After eight hours of inactivity on Snapchat, the bitmoji automatically disappears. So, unless they’ve hidden their location from you, they haven’t used Snapchat in at least eight hours.
Send them chats
Text them more than a few times to make them realize that it’s something really important. If they still don’t respond, then there’s a good chance they don’t have access to their account at the moment.
Besides these tips, there isn’t much you can do in such a case. Snapchat is a highly private platform and won’t allow an invasion of privacy by showing everyone when someone has uninstalled the app from their device.
