Snapchat streaks, a measure of your consistent interaction with a friend on the app, can sometimes be lost due to various reasons.
If you’ve found yourself in this situation, don’t worry – there is a way to reclaim your lost Snapchat streak. This guide will walk you through the process of verifying whether your streak is eligible for restoration and the steps to claim it back.
Eligibility for Snapstreak Restoration
To ensure that you have a valid claim for restoring your Snapchat streak, you must have adhered to certain guidelines. Firstly, both individuals involved in the Snapstreak need to have sent each other a snap at least once every 24 hours.
Remember, messages, pictures, or videos from Memories do not count. Additionally, snaps sent and received must be to and from the same individual – snaps in group messages are not considered for Snapstreaks.
How to Restore Your Snapchat Streak
Check for the ‘🔥 Restore’ Badge
First, look for a ‘🔥 Restore’ badge next to the chat that was part of your Snapstreak. If you see this badge, tap ‘Restore’ and follow the instructions within the app to get your Streak back.
What to Do If There’s No ‘🔥 Restore’ Badge
If the ‘🔥 Restore’ badge is not visible, unfortunately, your Snapstreak cannot be restored. This usually indicates that the streak ended too long ago.
When App Restoration Doesn’t Work
In cases where the in-app restoration process fails, you can fill out this form on Snapchat’s support page. Note that this option is only available for recently expired Snapstreaks.
How can I maintain a Snapstreak?
To maintain a Snapstreak, send a direct snap to your friend and receive one from them within a 24-hour period. Group messages don’t count.
What counts as a snap for a Snapstreak?
Only direct snaps sent to and received from the same friend count towards a Snapstreak. Messages, pictures, or videos from Memories are not eligible.
Can I restore a Snapstreak that ended several weeks ago?
Snapstreaks that ended a long time ago typically cannot be restored. The ‘🔥 Restore’ option is usually available for more recent streak losses.
What should I do if the ‘🔥 Restore’ badge is not visible?
If the ‘🔥 Restore’ badge is missing, it indicates that the streak cannot be restored, often due to the streak having ended too long ago.
Is there a way to restore my Snapstreak if the in-app process fails?
Yes, if the in-app process fails, you can submit a request for restoration through Snapchat’s support form, but this is only valid for recently expired Snapstreaks.
