Let’s start with something simple: your chat. This is one of the main tabs that you access by clicking on the speech bubble icon in the bottom menu.

To clear a chat channel, open your profile tab by tapping ghost icon in the upper left corner. Then click gear icon in the top right corner to access settings. Scroll down to tap Clear conversations in section Account Actions .

On the next tab, you’ll see a list of the friends you’ve chatted with, with X symbols next to them, which you can click to remove them from your chat. Clearing conversations doesn’t delete anything you’ve saved or already sent.

The only thing that clears the conversation is removing the username from your main chat. If you’ve sent something to a friend and want to undo it, clearing the conversation won’t undo it.

Delete instant messages that have already been sent

Snapchat does not currently offer a feature to send a snap that was sent too quickly or to the wrong friend. In previous application versions users believed they could prevent snapshots from being received if they could delete their accounts before the recipient opened their snapshots.

However, deleting an account to prevent a recipient from opening a snapshot sent by mistake no longer works in the most recent version of the Snapchat app.

If you attempt to delete your account before the recipient opens the snapshot, you will have to wait 30 days until your account is officially permanently deleted. Snapchat puts all accounts on a 30-day deactivation status before officially deleting them in case account holders change their mind and want to re-activate their accounts, which can be done by simply logging into the app during this 30-day deactivation period.

A deactivated account won’t save you from the pictures you regret. Even if your friends can’t send you anything while your account is inactive, any pictures you sent before you disabled your account will still show up in chat channels of your recipients, so they can view them.

Recipient Blocking: This Might Work

It turns out you don’t have to go to such extreme lengths to delete your account in order to send a snap. Simply blocking them can help.

Lock button and reasons for taking screenshots from iOS

Blocking the recipient quickly enough can simply prevent them from seeing your snaps.

To block people, tap them username or use the search box at the top to find them. On the text tab that opens, click menu Icon, which appears in the top left corner, then click » Block» on the mini-profile tab that slides out from the left side of the screen. You will be asked if you are sure you want to block this user and provide a reason.

When you Block a friend on Snapchat it is removed from your friends list and you are from it. Both of you will have to re-add each other to continue the binding as you are used to.

However, there is no guarantee that blocking a user will effectively “blow out” your snaps. If the recipient blocks them faster than you, they can still see your snaps. Likewise, Snapchat is constantly releasing updated versions of its app, and this blocking method to prevent snaps from being viewed may not work in future versions.

Delete Snapchat History

The Snapchat Stories interface, showing the Story button, the My Story section, and the trash can icon.

Snapchat offers a delete feature for stories, so you don’t have to worry about an embarrassing snap that lasts a full 24 hours for everyone to see. Stories are snapshots with photos and videos that you post in the » My history ”, which within 24 hours can be viewed publicly by your friends or everyone (depending on privacy settings ) when they visit their stories tab in the app.

To delete a Snapchat article you’ve posted, follow these steps:

Touch round icon » Story» in the top left corner of the camera screen, and then click on the article you published in the menu just below the anchor code. Click icon baskets, then confirm you want to delete it and you’re done.

Posting a story and then deleting it immediately does not guarantee that it will not be viewed by anyone. There is currently no feature on Snapchat that allows you to bulk delete stories.
