Part I: Introduction

Snapchat has been one of the go-to social media platforms in this generation. And it has become one of the most popular in the entire world.

A lot of its competitors (e.g. other social media networks) copied some of the features of Snapchat.

One of the copied features we’re talking about is the part where Snapchat has disappearing images. Facebook and Instagram have these ones already.

However, there are times when you actually want to save those disappearing images. But, there’s no feature in Snapchat that allows you to do so.

One solution to this is to screenshot the said snap. But, you have to be really fast. These images disappear really quick. So, what do you have to d

As stated before, you can actually get a copy of the snap by taking a screenshot. But there’s a downside to this, people will know that you actually took a screenshot of their snap. Snapchat will notify them of this.

You might not want this to happen for multiple reasons. And again, you have to do it quickly before the snap actually expires.

If you don’t want the sender of the snap that you actually took a screenshot of it, you can try out a few methods we will outline below:

Method 1: Using Flight Mode

This is done by putting your phone in Airplane Mode before actually taking a screenshot. By putting it in Airplane Mode, the network won’t get dets that you actually took a screenshot. Here’s how to do it step-by-step:

Step 01 - When Snapchat sends you a notification, put your phone in Airplane mode.

Step 02 - Tap the notification of Snapchat.

Step 03 - Check out the snap and take a screenshot.

Step 04 - Log out of the Snapchat application. Do this on the Settings menu.

Step 05 - Close the Snapchat application.

Step 06 - Disable Flight Mode

Step 07 - Launch Snapchat again and then log in.
