How to Get Your Snapchat Streak Back

A Snapstreak or a Snapchat streak happens when you and your friend snapped each other for 3 consecutive days.

The number next to the fire emoji displays the number of days you’ve been on a streak.

If you’ve been on a streak with your friend for a long time, you need to keep it going.

Otherwise, you’d lose the streak and the number next to the fire emoji will be gone.

But what if you lost your Snapchat streak by accident?

Or maybe you lost your internet connection right before your streak ended so you’re unable to send a snap.

If that’s the case, you need to contact Snapchat support for help.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to get, recover, or revive your Snapchat streak back.

Once you’ve entered the number of days that your Snapstreak lasted, scroll down the form.

Under the “How long was your Snapstreak before it expired?” field, you’ll see a “Did you see the ⏳ icon?” dropdown box.

The hourglass indicates that your Snapstreak is about to end.

Select “Yes” if you’ve seen the hourglass icon.

On the other hand, if you didn’t see the hourglass icon, select “No”.

Next, you need to explain your issue in the “What information should we know?” field.

In the “What information should we know?” field, explain that you’ve recently lost your streak on Snapchat and the reason behind it.

Here’s an example of a description, “Hi Snapchat, I recently lost my Snapstreak because of connectivity issues. I was about to send a snap right before my Snapstreak expired, but I lost connection so it couldn’t go through”.

Then, end of the description with a call to action like, “I need help in recovering my streak back, thanks!”.

Once you’ve completed the form, select the “Send” button to submit it to Snapchat support.

After you’ve submitted the form, you need to wait for Snapchat’s response.
