How to See First Message on Snapchat Without Scrolling

When Snapchat was initially launched, it did not have a texting/chatting feature. The users could only send snaps to each other. However, it soon anticipated the needs of its users and released the chats feature. Regardless, Snapchat’s first and foremost priority has always been its users’ privacy, which is why it has a “disappearing messages” option, too.

In today’s blog, we are going to answer a question related to the chats feature: How to see your first message on Snapchat without scrolling?

We will also be answering other related queries like: how to save your messages on Snapchat, and how to save the snaps and videos that you have received in your chat as well as your phone’s camera roll.

Is it Possible to See First Message on Snapchat Without Scrolling?

Let us suppose that you and your boyfriend, who initially met online on Snapchat, are celebrating your anniversary. As a romantic gesture, you want to show him a screenshot of your first chat. However, you have chatted a lot since then and do not want to scroll all the way up for your first messages. So, you’ve taken to the internet for a solution.

Well, we hate to disappoint you, but there is no other way to see your very first messages on Snapchat without scrolling up. In a future update, Snapchat might release such a feature, but as of now, there’s nothing you can do about it.

Before you go ahead and try to download various third-party apps to get your work done, let us tell you about a particular incident that happened a few years ago.

In 2014, a user on Snapchat downloaded a third-party app to archive/download the snaps he received. Thousands of images and videos were leaked. Snapchat did not take any responsibility because in its terms of use, it is explicitly stated that no other third-party apps are to be linked with Snapchat.

Moreover, around three months later, any and all Snapchat third-party tools were removed from Play Store (Android) and App Store (Apple). This was a request from Snapchat to Microsoft for the further strengthening of its privacy policy.


There is no way to see your first text to someone or vice versa on Snapchat without having to scroll all the way up. Moreover, since most people started using Snapchat a long time ago, there is no certainty that you even have those messages anymore unless you saved them yourself.

Even if you are sure that you do have those messages, do not turn to a third-party tool for your needs because it is not going to work. This is partly because Snapchat has a strict privacy policy against them, and partly because Play Store and App Store don’t have any third-party tools employable on Snapchat.

Later, we told you how you can save your messages in chat on Snapchat with step-by-step instructions. However, you cannot save any snaps that you have sent someone in your chat. You can ask them to do it before they have had a chance to open the snap, but that’s about it.
