People tend to repost others stuff and make a fake Snapchat account of someone else or abuse a celebrity. Now in the cases, the trick that I am going to discuss in this article may be really helpful and you have to wait for those to be sure.

From Camera roll

You will find a story posted on each suspected accounts and find out the one that has posted the story for the very first time. This account might be the real one as the other profiles may have been posted his stuff just by reposting the stuff from the original profile.

Is it possible to know if a Snapchat account is fake or not?

Actually, you cannot say that this profile is 100% fake or not fake because of the reality that we are guessing the profile to be fake based on the activity the profile is doing like posting staff and getting good followers or using the profile for the own purposes i.e. selling products, advertising other things and a lot more like that.

You must check the profile picture:

Sometimes looking at a profile picture of a Snapchat account tells a lot about that account like either this profile picture is a person itself or using something else from the stock photos. You should have found that if a person just using a profile picture that is not of that person itself then the profile may be fake that you should not trust on.

Check the Followers or the Following list:

If that account has a lot of followers on the list but those maybe random followers that may be brought or received from the bots. If those profiles are trying to sell their products, you should be thinking one more time before getting trapped.


I personally go into some steps like looking into the followers of the profile. I just reach to those profile and look into the profile stuff of those followers of that investigating profile and this makes me clear to find out if the followers are real or not and if in most of the cases I get the followers to be fake I mark that profile as fake for getting the fake followers to increase the online reputation.
