Expert Statement

If you Delete a Saved Message on Snapchat will they know?

In the case of deleting an entire conversation on Snapchat, the other person will not know about it. But if you delete a saved chat on Snapchat, the message will be deleted for both the chats but the tag will still show there that you have deleted a message on Snapchat’.

When you are going to delete a message on Snapchat, the pop-up will come where you can see it is written. For a group conversation, also the other people in your group will be able to see if you delete a saved message.

But you should take care with what you send to people, because if they take screenshots of your message, then you have nothing to do. Snapchat has no control over screenshots. 

What Happens when you delete a chat on Snapchat?

There are two cases of deleting a chat from individual chats or groups and another case is deleting the entire conversation and there is a difference in the final result between these two cases.  

1. Removes your Friend’s Username:

If you delete your friend’s chats manually from individual chats, then in this case your friend’s name will not be removed from the chat feed. Because if you delete a message, then Snapchat will alert your friends that you have deleted a message. The same message you can see in your chats also, so, in spite of deleting the messages, your friend’s name will not be removed. 

Now, in case of clearing the entire conversation, as it’s clear the messages are only from your side, so here your friend’s name will be removed.

2. Remove the Conversation thread from the chat:

Here also, if you send a chat to an individual or group chat and you delete the chat, then the message will be deleted but the notification will be sent that you have deleted the message. As the notification is sent to the person, instead of removing the conversation from the chat thread, the conversation comes at the top.

But if you choose ‘Clear Conversation’, then all messages will be removed (except the saved one) from the chat feed.

Now if we are talking about saved messages, by default, Snapchat sets its server in such a way that every message will be deleted after viewing by the other person. So, users generally save important messages.

Here, if you are trying to clear the entire conversation, then the saved messages will not be removed from the chats, they still remain there as they were. But you can delete the saved messages if you manually delete them from the chats. This time there is also a message sent to the person that you deleted a message, but the message will be deleted.  

4. Snapstreak is Lost:

You can delete your chat for two reasons. One, you send something wrong to this person and, second, you don’t want to continue the chat. When you delete a chat, the other person can see a notification in the list. In this case, the other person may stop chatting. 

If you just clear the conversation and do not continue to chat with the person then the streak would be lost.

The Bottom Lines:

If you want to make your Snapchat account tidier and cleaner, you can delete all unnecessary messages from your friend’s chat. Once you do that, you and the other person won’t be able to see them anymore. Hopefully, after reading this article you know the perks and drawbacks of the feature. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. If you clear a conversation on Snapchat can you get it back

Clearing a conversation on Snapchat helps you to use this app more smoothly without any malfunctions and lagging. But it is a one-way process, meaning if you clear a conversation on Snapchat, then you will not get it back.

Clearing a conversation will not remove the saved chats from your chats; it still remains there, so you can get these messages back.

If you really need these messages back, then tell the person (whose chats you clear) to send you the messages again. As ‘Clear Conversation’ clears the conversation only from your side, the other person still has the messages so they can send you this again. 

2. Does Clear from the chat feed notify users on Snapchat?

No, if you clear someone from your chat feed, then they will not be notified about this. When you are going to clear someone’s conversation, then their name will automatically be removed from the chat feed.

To clear their name from the chat feed, you can also go to the chats section of Snapchat and tap here and hold on the name whose messages you want to remove. Then tap ‘Chat Settings’ and after that tap ‘Clear from Chat Feed’. Then again tap ‘Clear’ and your friend’s name will be cleared from the chat feed. 

3. If I clear a conversation on Snapchat will the streak go away?

No, there is no relation between your Snap streak and clear conversation. The snap streak is dependent on snaps, meaning if you and your friend send snaps daily to each other, then their Snap streak will continue, otherwise, it will terminate and they have to start again from the start. ‘Clear Conversation’ feature only clears the messages, it will not make any changes to your Snap streak.
