How To Delete Multiple Friends On Snapchat | 3 Best Ways To Know!


Ever wondered how to delete multiple friends on Snapchat? We all know Snapchat is nothing but friends, right? But do we use Snapchat because we care about friends or because we fear missing out on stuff? Whatever your motivation might be, one thing is for certain, sometimes the pressure can get to the best of us. Social media can get overwhelming and in such cases taking a break is necessary.

When things get out of control no one really cares about your snap score or about your snap streak. No one cares whether you are using the crying filter or anything else. None of these superficial things matter. What matters is that you are at peace and at a place where you can take care of your mental health. Those who are around you and are truly your friends will anyway be there. Whether Snapchat exists or not, therefore there is no need to worry about losing anyone either.

Deleting multiple friends on Snapchat is not possible though. Snapchat relies on you having friends and using the app to stay connected with them. Therefore it does not give any function that allows mass deletion of friends. You can delete friends on Snapchat individually but there is no way to delete everyone at once.

If you really want to disconnect then simply uninstall the Snapchat application. But if you want to delete all history and every trace of your friends then you can simply deactivate your Snapchat account. If you don’t log in within 30 days, Snapchat will delete your account completely. After 30 days you can signup with a new account and get your username back with everything else deleted.
