How To Find Out Who Made A Fake Snapchat Account

By Pranab Sen

To find out who made a fake Snapchat account, the best way you can proceed is by complaining to legal authorities and seeking help from them if the user is doing something against you.

You need to save the user’s profile picture on your device.

Then, you can use the Google reverse image search tool to search for the user’s real identity by uploading the user’s display picture.

How To Find Out Who Made A Fake Snapchat Account:

You can try the following methods below to find out who made a fake Snapchat account:

1. Reach To Legal Administrators

If you believe that the Snapchat account is fake and you want to find who is behind the account, you can take legal action against that user.

For this, you have to file a complaint to the cyber team or legal authorities and they will help you out by finding & tracing the real user behind the profile if he/she is violating any law.

2. Google Reverse Image Search

You’ll need to check and save the Bitmoji of the fake Snapchat account and then use Google’s reverse image search tool to recognize the face in the picture.

Step 1: Open the Google search and go to the image search option.

Step 2: Click on Upload. 

Step 3: Then select and upload what you’ve saved on your device. 

Step 4: Search for the results. 

In the results, you’ll be able to see the owner’s information that the tool will be shown by recognizing the image. 

There are a few steps you can take to make a Snapchat account without phone number.

How To Tell If a Snapchat Account Is A Bot:

1. Profile Picture: If the profile picture is not a real person but something like a Bitmoji, it could be fake.

2. Followers/Following List: If the account has many random followers or promotes products, be cautious.

3. Snap Score: A high Snap Score can indicate a real account, but it’s not a guarantee. Check the profile picture, camera roll, and posted stories for authenticity.

4. Stories Posted: Check the stories posted. Some fake accounts repost others’ content or impersonate celebrities, so look for the original posts.
