How to Easily Restore Snapstreaks on Snapchat

Snapchat streaks are a fun way to stay connected with your friends, but it can be frustrating when a streak is accidentally broken. Fortunately, Snapchat has introduced a Restore option in the app, making it easy to restore inactive streaks. In this article, we'll show you how to restore snapstreaks on Snapchat quickly and effortlessly.

Restore Snapstreaks Using the Restore Option

Snapchat has heard our pleas and now offers a Restore option within the app itself. This option allows you to restore broken snapstreaks with just a few taps. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open Snapchat on your iPhone or Android device.
  2. Tap on the Chats icon to go to the chat feed.
  3. Look for the friend's chat you want to restore streaks with.
  4. If the streak ended recently, you will see an option for Restore with a fire icon above it. Tap on it.
  5. Confirm the restoration by tapping on Restore again.

Please note that you can only restore snapstreaks within 48 hours (2 days) of the streak breaking. After that, the option to restore any streaks will no longer be available. Additionally, you are entitled to 5 free streak restores per month. If you need to restore more streaks, you can do so by paying a nominal fee of $0.99 per streak.

Restore Snapstreaks by Contacting Support

If you are unable to restore your snapstreak using the Restore option or if the streak disappeared randomly, you can contact the Snapchat support team for assistance. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Visit the Snap Streak Restoration Request form on the Snapchat support website.
  2. Fill out the form with the necessary details and provide a detailed description of the issue.
  3. Submit the form, and a ticket will be raised with the Snapchat support team.

It's important to note that it may take up to 2 hours for the support team to respond. Make sure to submit the form only once within this time frame. Ensure that the email and phone number you provide are correct so that the support team can reach out to you.
