How to Delete Snapchat Messages the Other Person Saved


If the other person in the conversation has saved the message, then you’ll need to take a couple of extra steps. First, open up Snapchat and go to the main screen where all of your conversations are listed. Find the conversation you want to delete and long press on it until a pop-up menu appears. Tap on “Delete.”

You’ll see a warning that says “This will delete the chat history for both you and [person’s name].” If you still want to proceed, tap “Delete Chat.” The chat will then be deleted from both of your accounts.

If you just want to delete one part of the conversation, though, things are a bit different. Open up Snapchat and go into the conversation where you want to delete a message. Once you’re there, press and hold on the message until a pop-up menu appears. When it does, tap on “Delete.” The message will then be deleted just from your account—the other person will still have it saved if they’ve chosen to do so.

How to Delete All Saved Messages on Snapchat


Deleting all saved messages is pretty straightforward: just open up Snapchat and go into Settings by tapping on the gear icon in the top right corner. From there, scroll down until you see “Clear Conversations.” Tap on it and then confirm that you want to delete all saved messages by tapping “Yes” when prompted. Keep in mind that this will only delete messages from your account—the other person will still have them saved if they’ve chosen to do so.

How to Delete Snapchat Conversations Permanently


Deleting a Snapchat conversation permanently is a little trickier because it involves deleting the app and then reinstalling it. First, make sure that you have all of your important conversations backed up somewhere else—you can use an app like WhatsApp or Telegram for this. Once that’s done, delete Snapchat from your phone and then reinstall it from the app store.
When you open up Snapchat after reinstalling it, you’ll be asked if you want to restore your conversations from an iCloud or Google Drive backup. Choose whichever option you used to back up your conversations (if you didn’t back them up anywhere, then choose “Not now”).

Once your conversations have been restored, go into Settings and tap on “Clear Conversations.” Tap on “Yes” when prompted and all of your conversations will be deleted permanently—including any backups you might have had in iCloud or Google Drive!


Conclusion

Whether you’re trying to clear up some space on your phone or get rid of a conversation you no longer want around, deleting Snapchat messages is easy enough to do. Just remember that if the other person has saved the message, deleting it from your end won’t get rid of it from their account too you’ll need to delete the entire conversation from both sides in order for that to happen.
