Why Did Snapchat Message Disappear Before Opening:

The unique strategy that has been used by an app is that nothing lasts forever, which means messages, and videos will all disappear automatically unless you save them.

Before knowing the concept of 24 hours disappearing or after viewing, you need to understand that Snaps are different from Messages. Due to Snapchat’s default settings, you will be able to manage your conversation.

Let’s know more about:

1. Messages or Chats (For Group Messages)

A conversation with another Snapchat user is set to be disappeared once they are viewed. As per your convenience, you can set the chat to be deleted either immediately after viewing or automatically after 24 hours of viewing. Previously viewed chats will be disappeared if you switch from ‘After 24 hours’ to After viewing.

If someone saves your chat in the conversation box, your messages won’t be deleted immediately & directly. Snapchat is designed to make messages delivered to a group, disappear one day after everyone sees it or one week after the message is sent (if not viewed by all), whichever is earlier.

2. Snaps (Even Unread)

Like Messages, Snaps on Snapchat automatically disappear after all other users have viewed them. In the case of unread snaps, Snapchat servers automatically make them disappear after 30 days. In group chats, unopened/unread snaps will be deleted after 24 hours.
