If you think you’re one of those who adore Snapchat filters, then most probably it’s just another day in your life, and you decide to watch a snap on Snapchat or just post a snap or story on your Snapchat account before getting ready for new challenges of a new day. But wait, a notification pops up saying ‘Error Connecting’ or ‘Log-in Error.’ Not now!!! I’m pretty sure this is your reaction. Network connection issues are one of the most unwanted issues that can show up at any time on anyone’s screen.
Well, nobody likes server or connection errors ever. This problem sometimes is really very annoying. But worry not. In this article, I’ll tell you about the techniques using which you can solve the problem of Snapchat login connection error.
Recently, a large number of people reported complaints regarding Snapchat login connection error when they read “Login Error” or “Could Not Connect” on their cell phones or systems. Such issues sometimes get resolved in a blink of an eye, but the delay can really blow a fuse if they take longer.
So finally, after waiting for a reasonable period of time, if the problem stands still, then you decide to handle it on your own. On this note, the first thing that comes to mind right away or that should come straight into your mind is: locating the source of the problem. Because only if you know where exactly the problem is can you proceed to tackle it all.
SOME POSSIBLE REASONS WHY YOU AREN’T ABLE TO LOG IN SNAPCHAT
- There’s some issue with your device.
- You’re using an old version of Snapchat.
- You’re making use of an obsolete browser.
- Your device doesn’t support or isn’t compatible with the Snapchat application. Snapchat works on 4.4 (or upgraded) android devices as well as iOS 11 (or upgraded) devices.
But to give you the reality check, I must tell you that many times the solution doesn’t lie where it actually looks like, even if you make out the source of the problem. Sure thing, this will only increase your problem even more. So quickly, let’s get straight off to the possible ways that can help you get out of this situation.
SETTLING SNAPCHAT LOGIN CONNECTION ERROR WITH TECHNIQUES THAT ACTUALLY WORK
1. FORCE CLOSE THE SNAPCHAT APP AND TRY AGAIN
Seriously, this is such a handy and effective fix to the Snapchat login connection error problem. Chances are you might already have checked your internet connection and didn’t find any problem there. In such a case, you need not get stuck and keep thinking about what possibly could have happened. Instead, force stop the app and then launch it again.
- Go to Settings
- Then locate or find the Snapchat app in Apps.
- Tap or click on “Force Stop.”
- You may come across a notification or warning stating that if you do this (force stop an app), the app may not function properly, which is totally fine. So without any worries, hit on this option.
- Lastly, come back to the home screen and open (or relaunch) Snapchat again by simply tapping on the app icon.
2. ENTER THE CORRECT LOGIN CREDENTIALS
Username? Check. Password? Check. Snapchat login connection error? Well then, check again. Entering the wrong username or password can make you end up scratching your head, thinking what has gone wrong? This simply means there’s no such account on the Snapchat using which you are trying to log in, which obviously will land you in a ‘User Not Found’ scenario. So make sure to verify your username and password.
In case you can’t refresh your memory about your Snapchat password, you can reset that by visiting this link.
NOTE: Snapchat officially declares on their page that none of their representatives will ever demand your Snapchat password from you for any procedural activity. You can read about that here.
3. USE SNAPCHAT WITHOUT VPN
You might be using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) on your device at times. This may not let your Snapchat work properly. If this is the case with you, then switching to another network (over the VPN) or simply disabling (or disconnecting) the VPN might bury the hatchet.
You can also uninstall or reinstall the VPN and check out if you’re able to log in using your Snapchat account.
4. GET YOUR DEVICE OFF THE BATTERY SAVER MODE
Battery Saver is an option that lets us save on the device’s battery by restraining several apps from working in the background. However, this can impact the sleeping apps (which were not in use) from time to time.
You can easily locate the Battery Saver option under Settings and turn it off. After this, try to log into your Snapchat account and see if it works. If this doesn’t work for you, don’t worry at all. Take a deep breath and try another alternative. Scroll down a little to know about that.
5. SHIFT TO AUTHORIZED TOOLS AND PLUGINS
Snapchat is also widely used for brand promotion like any other social media platform. In fact, Snapchat has launched its own platform, namely ‘Snapkit,’ among several other platforms to assist brand owners in making people aware of their products or services without biting the bullet. To do so, users might also require using some outside plugins and tools. But keep in mind that Snapchat only allows certain selective third-party apps, plugins, and tools that Snapchat authorizes to work along with the app.
If you are using unauthorized third-party apps, plugins or tools, uninstall it without any further delay. Otherwise, you may not stop facing Snapchat login connection error, and even your account can get blocked. Here you can find detailed insights on unauthorized third-party apps, plugins, and tools from Snapchat.
6. RESTART YOUR DEVICE AND TRY AGAIN
Another way to get past this issue is simply restarting the device and re-attempting the log-in procedure. I know this formula is old-fashioned, but as they say, ‘old is gold.’
7. GET, SET, REVIVE YOUR ACCOUNT
Just in case you’ve deleted your Snapchat account, and now you want to have it back, but even after going the whole nine yards you aren’t able to log in, then it seems like a lot of people, you’re also attempting to log in using your E-Mail ID. There’s no chance you can log into your Snapchat account with your E-Mail ID. If you do so, be ready to come across ‘User Not Found’ on your screen.
The only way to log in to your Snapchat account is using your Snapchat Username and Password.
NOTE: A Snapchat account can’t be reactivated after 30 days of its deletion.
So I hope these above-listed reliable techniques can make you bid farewell to Snapchat login connection error once and for all. If you think the matter is getting out of your hands, then you can contact Snapchat and forward your concern to their team. Maybe Snapchat has locked you out of your account for some reason.
