Snapchat is a social network that encourages users to spend as much time as possible on the app. With features like streaks, snap map, and the mysterious snap score, it’s easy to get lost in the world of Snapchat. Your snap score is a calculated number that gives you a numerical rating based on your Snapchat usage throughout the life of the app.
Snap Inc has been vague on how your snap score is calculated, keeping the number a puzzle. If you’re curious about how the number works and whether you can hide or disable your snap score, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s dive in and find out how to check your snap score.
To find your snap score, start by opening the app and tapping on the profile icon in the top corner. Beneath your bitmoji and snap code, you’ll find your snap score displaying the full number of points you’ve made over a certain amount of time. Tapping on the score allows you to see both your sent score and your received score individually, with your sent on the left and your received on the right.
To view the scores of your friends, slide to the right from the viewfinder to open your chat tab. Then select or search for the friend you want to view. Tap on their bitmoji, and beneath their username, you can find their own respective snap scores.
Unfortunately, you can’t hide or disable your snap score, which may seem unfortunate if you have a competitive friend or you’re new to using Snapchat and your number seems low. Thankfully, by understanding what we know about snap scores, you can work to raise yours up in no time.
Snap scores have some known rules, and it’s worth paying attention to them. First, sending and receiving snaps awards you a single point. Occasionally, you may receive more. That said, sending snaps to multiple people at once doesn’t award you any additional points, so don’t spam your friends with snaps to raise your scores.
Posting to your story gains you a single point. Posting stories with multiple videos over a 10-second mark, for example, doesn’t gain you any additional points. Likewise, viewing stories doesn’t gain you points. Informing or continuing streaks has no impact on your snap score either.
With those concepts in mind, you can work towards raising your snap score in no time. Sending snaps is the best way to do it, and if you use the app regularly, you’ll start seeing your snap score boost again and again.
In conclusion, your snap score is a mystery, but by following the known rules, you can raise it up in no time. Keep in mind that the number itself doesn’t matter, and Snapchat is all about having fun with your friends. So, send some snaps, post to your story, and enjoy the app!
