When you follow the steps to delete your Snapchat account using your username and password, Snapchat will deactivate your account for 30 days. During that period, Snapchat will say, “Hey, what if he changes his mind at last.” If you don’t request account reactivation, Snapchat will permanently delete your account.

If your account still falls within the reactivation period, then you’re set to follow the steps below to request for Snapchat account recovery. This guide will walk you through the steps to reactivate a Snapchat account on both iPhone and Android.
