How To See Snapchat Conversation History Without Them Knowing

By Pranab Sen

✎ Key Takes:

» You can view someone’s Snapchat messages by partially opening them, achieved by sliding the screen to the right, allowing you to read messages without the sender being notified.
» You can use the Airplane mode method to read unread messages covertly; turn on Airplane mode, view the messages, and then clear the Snapchat app cache to maintain stealth.

How To See Snapchat Conversation History Without Them Knowing:

There are the following methods that you can try:

If you want to view the unread Snapchat messages then you have to proceed in certain steps:

1. First Turning on Airplane mode

◘ In this method, the first thing that you have to do is to put your device in Airplane mode.

◘ Not to forget that this method can be employed by both Android and iOS device users as the feature of Airplane mode is present in both these devices.

◘ You can turn on your airplane mode by simply rolling a screen down and tapping on the airplane mode icon. An awesome player visits your device settings and toggles on the airplane mode option.

Enabling your airplane mode automatically turns off mobile data or the internet connection.

Then Read Messages:

◘ Now once airplane mode is enabled, which cuts off the internet connection of your device, the next thing you have to do is open your Snapchat application.

◘ Now select the personal friend whose messages you wish to read by simply typing their name. As soon as you do this, your screen will present all the messages that you received on Snapchat before you have turned on your Airplane mode.

You can read and go through all the messages.

Then Clear Cache:

◘ After you have finished reading the messages before you turn off airplane mode, do not forget to clear cache data for the Snapchat app.

◘ For this, upon your profile at the left top corner of your screen, go to the settings by tapping on the gear icon scene at the top right corner.

◘ Scroll down and select the account actions option and then tap on clear cache followed by clear all options. This will clear all your cached data.

When you’re done with this you can now turn off your airplane mode.

2. Half-Way open the Snapchat Message

Another method of reading Snapchat messages without letting the opposite person know whether you’ve read the message or not is the halfway open method.

◘ Go to your Snapchat account and scroll down to find any unread chats or messages present in your chat tab.

◘ After you have located the ‘unread messages’ the next thing to do is to carefully swipe your screen to the right by tapping hand-holding on that person or bitmoji icon.

Continue to drag the screen to the right until you can view the unread messages making sure you do not completely cover your screen with the chat screen of that person.

When you are using the halfway swipe method, use a slow movement, otherwise, you will accidentally swipe the screen completely and your intention of not letting the opposite person know about will fail. This happens because you went too far or have completely swiped your screen to the right which you should not.

How to see deleted Snapchat conversation history:

When you delete your entire chat history from your Snapchat account, you won’t be able to view the previous conversations anymore on your Snapchat profile.

You need to download your Snapchat account data from the My Data section.

However, you should know that Snapchat doesn’t specifically download the conversations but it downloads the entire information of your Snapchat account along with the chats after which it sends it to your email account.
