What happens to my Snapchat account when I die?
Unfortunately, Snapchat does not offer any solutions for you to prepare your account prior to your death. Snapchat is happy however to remove the account of a deceased person.
How does Snapchat find out if someone has died?
Snapcha relies on other members to notify it of a person’s passing. Once notified, Snapchat will validate and is happy to close the deceased person’s account.
How do you notify Snapchat of a death?
You can notify Snapchat by contacting them directly through their online Contact Us form. You will need to follow these steps:
- Report a safety concern
- Someone else’s Snapchat account
- “something else?” YES
- The person passed away
You will need to provide the Snapchat username of deceased, and a copy of their death certificate.
