How to get unbanned from Snapchat?

Why is my account banned?

There are many reasons why your Snapchat account may have been banned. Although it is a free app, users who engage in suspicious activity are at risk of being banned.

The most common reasons are:

· Harassment and bullying

· Sexually explicit content on your account

· Threats, violence and harm

· Participation in hate groups and hate speech

Cyberbullying is becoming more prevalent and social media apps, including Snapchat, are doing their best to prevent any type of online harassment.

What types of Snapchat bans are there?

Essentially, three types of bans exist for Snapchat:

· Temporary ban: This is similar to a warning to users who are performing suspicious activity on the app. Temporary Snapchat bans last between 24 and 48 hours. after 48 hours, you can try to log in to your account again.

· Device ban: This is a more severe penalty than the first one. After using a device ban, you will be automatically logged out. If you violate some community guidelines or offend someone with a text, you may be banned from using devices.

· Permanent ban: If Snapchat finds solid evidence of this, it will permanently ban your account indefinitely. After you receive a permanent ban from Snapchat, you will not be able to restore your account, which means you will have to create a new account.
