Snapchat is a messaging app designed to make messages disappear after they are read. The app was created in 2011 by two Stanford students, and launched the following year. It became popular among teenagers because of its disappearing messages, which made it difficult for parents to track what their children were doing. In 2013, Snapchat was rated the third most popular social media app in the United States.

As of 2018, Snapchat has over 187 million daily active users. The app is especially popular among young people; over 60% of 13- to 34-year-olds in the United States use Snapchat.

Despite its popularity, there are a number of reasons why you might want to disable or delete your Snapchat account. Maybe you’re concerned about privacy, or maybe you’re just tired of the app. In any case, here’s how to disable Snapchat.

To disable your account, open the app and tap on the ghost icon in the top left corner. Then, tap on the gear icon in the top riht corner to open Settings. Scroll down and tap on “Account Actions.” Tap on “Disable My Account,” enter your password and tap Disable. You will then be prompted to select a reason for disabling your account, such as “It’s not you, it’s me,” “I don’t use this anymore,” or “My account was hacked.”
