How To Take A Screenshot On Snapchat Without Anybody Noticing

Are you looking for an easy way to take a screenshot on Snapchat without the other person getting a notification?

Then this article is what you have been searching for. This article will take you through a simple trick that allows you to take a screenshot when chatting with someone without the other person seeing it.

We will all agree that Snapchat is one of the most popular social media apps.

For beginners, it is the best app to take pictures because of its excellent filters.

Aside from that, Snapchat also got the best editing tools for editing a picture to make it look awesome.

And when you get to use this excellent app, you will tend to know that it’s not just an app for taking awesome pictures but a whole lot more.

Snap Inc launched Snapchat on July 8, 2011. The main motive behind this app is to allow its users to send pictures and videos that will disappear after 24 hours.

But Snapchat grew more prominent, and there have been many features that have made this messaging app one of the most addicted apps on the planet.

Now Snapchat has a feature called ‘Stories’ which allows users to share pictures and videos on their stories and then will be inaccessible after 24 hours (just like Facebook stories, but Facebook copied this feature from Snapchat anyway).

Snapchat then added a new feature called ‘Discover,’ allowing brands to advertise using video format. 

Snapchat is more focused on privacy. Because of this, their messaging app is end-to-end encrypted. Aside from that, they have a feature called ‘My Eyes Only,’ which allows you to access your photos only by dialing your password.

Talking of privacy, let us dive into some of Snapchat features that makes it addictive to use 

Snapchat is one of the messaging apps that lets you know everything when chatting with someone.

Awesome Snapchat Features

Get A Notification When Someone Is Typing

With Snapchat, you will get a notification when someone is sending you a message. There will be a notification that ‘This user is typing.’

This notification feature is one remarkable feature that is yet to come to another popular social media app. Although Whatsapp lets you see when someone is typing, whatsapp does not notify you. You only get to know when you are inside the whatsapp app.

Voice And Video Calls

With Snapchat’s video and audio calling features, you can stay connected with your friends and families for a more extended period when you call someone, and that person is unavailable.

Snapchat also has a feature that lets you send users a message to that person to let them know you called them.

Snap Map

Snap Map is one of my favorite Snapchat features; this feature allows you to know the location of your friends and families.

With Snapchat, you can know the location of anybody you are chatting with. Snapchat also lets you know the kilometers and miles away from any of your friends.

This excellent feature is used to make new friends around you. All you have to do is go to your Snap Map and then you will see all the Snapchat users around you on the map, click on any of them and start having a conversation. (This is one feature that will take whatsapp 100 billion years to implement).

All these Snapchat features make the app one of my favorite messaging apps.

And now, let’s come to the messaging part. Snapchat main motive is to alert both users on what each other is doing inside the chat.

So let’s say if you are typing, Snapchat will let the other user know. If you are reading the message you received, Snapchat will let the sender know you are reading.

With Snapchat, chats disappear after 24 hours, but users can change it to disappear after they read when chatting with someone.

The user changes how they want the conversations to disappear, Snapchat will notify you when you also make any changes, Snapchat will let the other user know.

Snapchat will also notify the user when you decide to save any image or video you received regarding media.

The same applies to when you decide to take a screenshot of the chat.

When I was chatting with one girl on Snapchat, this girl sent me a nice image, and then knowing the image would disappear after 24 hours, I decided to take a screenshot, and then Snapchat notified the girl.

She then asked why I did that, and I had to lie for us to continue chatting.

You might have encountered the same problem before, or you will experience one once you decide to chat with Snapchat users.

That is why this article is for you. In this article, I will take you through how to take a screenshot on Snapchat, and the person you will be chatting with will have no clue that you have taken a screenshot.
