When your Snaps on your phone gallery disappear, you may look for the guide on how to get it back. Fortunately, Snapchat definitely stores all your saved snaps in its gallery. That means you can get your snaps back, as long as you know where your snaps are saved.
If you accidentally lose your snaps on your phone gallery and you want to get it back, you may have to find out the Snapchat gallery, since it actually stores your snaps. Thankfully, this post will show you the guide where to find your snaps. Okay. Let’s check it out!
Where Do Your Saved Snapchats Go?
As we’ve mentioned, Snapchat will store all of your snaps (photos, videos, etc) on its gallery or Snapchat memories itself. Of course, you may need to log into your Snapchat account to find your saved snaps. Well, every time you take a phone through Snapchat and then save the photo to your camera roll, it will be automatically saved in your Snapchat Memories.
Even if you delete the photo from your phone gallery, your snaps will still be available on Snapchat until you delete it from there. Keep in mind, your snaps will not be saved forever, since it can only keep them for up to 30 days.
Even though your snaps are not saved forever, instead you can hide them by placing them in a password-protected folder called ‘My Eyes Only’. As an alternative, you can also remove your snaps once receiving the message.
Depending on the camera app, you can really save your snaps to your phone’s camera server or roll. By default, your snaps and stories will be stored on the server. However, you can also select to save them to your phone’s camera roll or memory. For specific snaps, you can scroll through those saved posts or search for them.
Additionally, Snapchat allows you to make great memories with its creative filters and fun messaging tools. Every time you save a snap to your phone gallery, Snapchat will also automatically store your snaps on Snapchat as well. You can then see other people’s snaps which you had saved on your friendship profiles.
