Can’t Login to Snapchat — Possible Fixes

First of all, before looking for any solutions for any issue with any apps for that matter, you may do well to check the status of the servers. Because, sometimes we may be looking for solutions and the problem doesn’t lie anywhere else but the servers, so, in that case, we only can wait and nothing else. So, let’s start with the first method and proceed thereon.

Check the Server Status

  • Open your preferred browser (I prefer Google Chrome).
  • Now, open the downdetector website.
  • Next, put up a question, say “Is Snapchat down?” and you will soon get the server status of Snapchat in your region.
  • If at all, there is a server outage in your region, all you can do is wait till the issue resolves and is back up-and-running.

Check your Network Connection

Also, it may even be that there is an issue with nothing but your network/modem connections. So, you may do well to check the stability of your network. To do so:

  • Open your usual browser.
  • Then, open fast.com or the ookla website and run a speed test.
  • In case the speed is not apt, you may opt to connect to another wi-fi network or try disconnecting and then reconnecting your modem.
  • You may also try restarting your router after waiting for a few moments.
  • That’s it! If the issue is with your network connection then it will resolve.
  • Luckily, you can relax now!

Reset your Snapchat Password

In most cases, login issues on Snapchat are caused by providing invalid credentials on the login screen. To make sure you have the right password for your account, you may also change it. Here is how:

  • Open Snapchat and go to the login page.
  • Now tap on the option denoting Forgot Password?
  • Next, choose the method you want to use to reset your password.
  • Then, follow the on-screen instructions and enter a new password for your account.
  • Thereafter, return to the login screen and try to access your account.

Turn Off Your Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

If you are using VPN services on your device, you should turn them off if you are having trouble with Snapchat. Since VPNs randomly change your IP address, your device may have trouble connecting to Snapchat’s servers and may not be able to verify your credentials.

Note: If at all it is necessary to use a VPN then use secure ones like NordVPN.

Update Snapchat

Usually, bugs and other issues of any application get resolved in the newer version of that application. So, check if there is any update available for your Snapchat app. If there is one, then, you surely should update it right away. Here is how you can do so:

Android Users

Clear Cache Data

Cache data for that matter, is files, images, and other media stored locally on your device. This data is used to quickly load features and functions of apps to improve their performance. However, if you are having issues with apps like Snapchat, clearing the app cache may also fix the problem. You just need to:

  • Open the Snapchat app and login into your account.
  • Then, tap the profile icon.
  • Next, tap on the Settings (gear) option.
  • Thereafter, scroll down and tap on Clear Cache.
  • Finally, tap Continue / Clear All for Android and iOS devices respectively.
