Popular mobile social media platform Snapchat now boasts more than 250 million users around the world. But while much of Snapchat’s attraction lies in its slick functionality, many users complain Snap leaves them locked out of their accounts. However, there are some simple steps to fixing this, if this issue affects you.
Why does Snapchat keep logging me out?
Most users rarely wish to log out of Snapchat in between sessions.
Continuously signing in and out while switching between apps usually seems an unnecessarily arduous step.
In addition, this results in the inability to receive messages or any other notifications.
As a result, very few users ever resort to signing out of Snapchat with any regularity.
However, this appears to be exactly what is happening to numerous Snapchat users.
Many have reported opening the app to scroll through their latest Snaps, only to be annoyingly greeted with Snapchat’s log-in screen.
And to make matters worse, others claim once logging back into their account, Snapchat almost-instantly logs them out again.
Users have repeatedly relayed this issue to the @snapchatsupport Twitter feed.
This is also an ideal opportunity to ensure the most up-to-date version of the Snapchat is installed on your device.
A helpful tip at this point is to also ensure Snapchat’s automatic update option is activated, rendering manual updates no longer necessary.
A final possibility to consider if the Snapchat account in question has been locked by the app, which will result in an inability to log in.
Should this be the case, users can easily troubleshoot using the tips found on the Snapchat Support page.
