Social media is a big part of everyone’s life. So, the last thing you might want is to have any of your accounts closed. In that case, it’s best to know what things you should never do, so you can keep your account as long as you want it.
Just like any other social network, Snapchat has rules for all its users. If you want to keep your account active, it’s a good idea to know what you should never do on Snapchat. For example, the obvious, not using the platform for anything illegal, for starters. But here are other things to keep in mind.
How to Get Kicked out of Snapchat
You should never do apparent things if you want to keep your Snapchat account active, but sometimes you need a reminder. For example, if you keep publishing content that keeps getting reported, you’re asking for your account to be closed.
There will always be someone who will be jealous of how great your content is and report you even though you’ve done nothing wrong. The good news is that Snapchat reviews each report to make sure that the information is valid. There are Snapchat Community Guidelines to keep in mind. For example, you can do anything that falls into the following categories:
- Sexually Explicit Content
- Harassment and Bullying
- Threats, Violence and Harm
- Impersonation and Spam
- Hate Speech and False InformationÍllegal Content
Avoid Sending Spam
Who doesn’t like adding a lot of friends, right? But if you haven’t even verified your phone number or email address, and you start adding way too many friends, that can result in getting your account banned. Try to resist sending out messages no one asked you for. This is considered Spam, and it’ll result in getting your account closed.
Don’t Use Unauthorized Third-Party Apps to Use Snapchat
Some Snapchat users may not know about this rule and use a third-party app to access Snapchat. If you used one and now your account is closed, don’t worry. First-time offenders will only have their accounts closed for one day. But if you keep using these apps, then Snapchat will permanently close your account.
So remember, if you want to keep your Snapchat account open, avoid using these apps:
If you’ve been using one of these apps, make sure to uninstall them as soon as possible. Also, change your Snapchat password to be on the safe side. Also, don’t worry if you’ve uninstalled the third-party app and you’re still having problems getting into your account. The login issue shouldn’t last very long.
If you have an iOS device and it’s jailbroken, the third-party apps may not uninstall correctly. In this case, the best thing you can do is upgrade to a newer OS version remove the jailbreak. Snapchat has more information on its page on what to do when dealing with jailbroken iOS devices.
The rules that Snapchat has established are also there for your protection. Suppose you use Snapchat for any illegal activities. In that case, you can bet that you’ll see more consequences than just having your account closed. Since no one really wants to get in trouble with the law, at least on purpose, it’s always best to know what you’re not allowed to do. Would you add anything else to the list?
