You log into your Snapchat account and see the Fire Emoji beside your friend’s username. Your Snapscore is improving day by day. But sometimes, due to unavoidable circumstances, you lose your impressive Snapchat streak run. But don’t worry; there is still a way through which you can recover your lost Snapchat streak.
So in this tutorial, we will explore the steps through which you can recover your lost Snapchat Streak. But before diving into the steps, let’s touch upon a few basics of a Snapchat Streak.
What is a Snapchat Streak?
A Snapchat Streak is a symbol of a great friendship. But for maintaining a streak, you would have to rely on a good friend.
A Snapchat Streak starts when you and your friend start sending direct snaps to each other for three consecutive days. Once a streak has begun, a fire emoji (🔥) will appear beside your friend’s username and the number of days the maintained streak.
Snapchat rewards different emojis for maintaining Snap Streaks for long periods, e.g., the 100 emojis (completing 100 days of your Snapstreak).
Snapchat Streak Rules
A Snapchat Streak continues as long as you and your friend send snaps to each other within the twenty-four-time frame. Snaps here refer to taking a photo or video and forwarding it to your friend. A Snapchat Streak is much more difficult to maintain than it seems to be.
It is important to note that the following aren’t considered Snaps-
1. Messages sent on Groups
2. Chatting or sending stickers
3. Snaps sent from Camera Roll or Memories
4. Content send through Spectacles.
It is also essential to look after the hourglass emoji beside your friend’s username. It means that your SnapStreak is about to expire. To keep your streak alive, send a snap to your friend or ask them to send you a snap.
How to Recover Your lost Snapchat Streak
Snapchat sends you an alert when your Snapchat Streak is about to expire. But sometimes, due to unavoidable circumstances, you cannot maintain your Snap Streak. After a Snapchat Streak expires, the standard procedure is to start another one from scratch.
But if the Snapchat Streak meant a lot to you, you can equip the following method to recover your Snap streak:
1. Visit the Snapchat Support Page.
2. Click on Contact Us.
3. Under the “How can we help you?” section, click on “My Snapstreaks have disappeared.”
4. A questionnaire will appear on your screen. Fill in the questionnaire and click send.
The answers you fill in your questionnaire will be crucial for whether your Snapchat will be recovered or not. You have to try to be as genuine and accurate as possible. Try to enter the exact number of days you maintained your SnapStreak. If you don’t remember, a rough estimate value will also work. But it shouldn’t be far from the original value.
Under the “What Should we know?” question, you have to explain why you weren’t able to maintain your SnapStreak. For this, you will have to cook up a reason (like- loss of internet connection) so that the Support believes it’s a genuine case and helps you recover your streak.
It’s also essential to know not to use this method repeatedly to revive your Snapchat Streak. Snapchat support would probably not accept more than two or three requests. So always remember only to use this method in extreme cases.
Maintain Your Snapchat Streak
The best method to maintain your Snapchat Streak is to look after Snapchat notifications and for the hourglass emoji beside your friend’s username to get notified about your Snapstreak status. And most importantly, be consistent in sending snaps.
Don’t wait for the right time, place, or surrounding to click a Snap. Even a photo of your house ceiling will help you continue your streak. For any further queries related to the above tutorial, you can always use the comments section below.
