How to Delete a Snapchat Account

Snapchat is the newest social media app that mobile phone users love. With this app, you take a simple picture or video and send it to all of your friends. The picture or video will only last for a very short time before it is gone forever, though some people will doubt if Snapchat is safe and private.

But, as it happens with many other applications, deleting the app from your phone doesn't mean you're also deleting your account. Your contact will still appear on your friends' list, even if you haven't been using the app for a long time. If you're not longer using Snapchat, at OneHowTo we explain you how to delete your Snapchat account if you're no longer using it.

Delete the app from your phone. If you have decided that Snapchat just is not for you, it is important that you wipe the account completely off of your mobile phone. The trick about the Snapchat app is that it is not as easy to delete as you would think. If you just delete the app off of your phone, it will still have all of your information stored in it.
