If Snapchat keeps logging you out on its own, that means something is wrong. You don’t have to worry right away, though, because most of these problems can be fixed once you figure out what’s wrong. This article talks about the most common reasons why Snapchat keeps logging you out and how to stop it.
Users say the app keeps logging them out and isn’t working today. There have been a lot of Snapchat down reports recently. We’ve been getting a lot of reports that Snapchat has been down since today. At its peak, around 3,000 people told us that Snapchat was down when we were writing this.
Many Snapchat users posted on Twitter with the hashtag # Snapchatdown. One of them says, “#Snapchatdown So it’s not just you who can’t use Snap.”
Why Does Snapchat Keep Logging Me Out?
When Snapchat gets a major update, you will be logged out automatically. It does this by using your phone’s “Background App Refresh” feature. Even though the process works most of the time smoothly, it can sometimes keep repeating because of a bug that causes users to be automatically logged out of Snapchat.
Also, if you have linked a third-party app to your Snapchat account, Snapchat could log you out if it thinks the app poses a privacy risk. Aside from that, these errors can happen if you’re using an older version of the app or if someone else knows your account password.
Recently, we’ve seen a few Snapchat users talk about this problem on Snapchat Support Twitter. Some are getting a message that says there’s a server error, while others aren’t getting any feedback at all. But Snapchat hasn’t said much about it other than to say that the problem is being looked into.
The problem could be with the Snapchat app or with the servers that run the service. In that case, the only thing to do is wait until the company fixes the problem. But if Snapchat keeps logging users out, there are a few things they can try:
- Sign out from every other device.
- Remove access to third-party apps.
How to check if Snapchat is down?
If Snapchat doesn’t work for you, you should first think that it might not work for anyone. You can find out if Snapchat is down in two different ways.
Down Detector is a website that checks whether or not all kinds of services are working. If you go to Down Detector’s page for Snapchat, it will tell you if there are problems with Snapchat or not. You can also look at the Live Outage Map to find out if the problem is only in certain areas.
The second choice is to use the official Snapchat support account on Twitter. Follow it if you want to know what’s going on with Snapchat and how long it might be down.
How to logout Snapchat from all devices?
If you lose or steal a device that’s connected to your Snapchat account, make sure to disconnect it as soon as you can.
When you forget a device that is linked to your Snapchat account, it can’t be used by someone else to get into your account. Two-factor authentication will also stop people who shouldn’t be able to log in from doing so.
To logout Snapchat from all devices:
- On your Camera screen, tap the profile icon at the top
- Tap the ⚙️ button to go to your settings
- Tap Two Factor Authentication
- Tap Forget Devices
- Tap the ✖️ button next to each device that you’d like to forget and tap ‘Yes’ when prompted to confirm.
How to delete third-party Apps from Snapchat?
Through Snap Kit, you can connect your Snapchat account to third-party apps that have been approved by Snapchat. You can share Snaps, Stories, and Bitmoji to and from your favorite apps with Snap Kit apps.
Other than Display Name and Bitmoji, Snap Kit doesn’t let developers of connected apps access data when users log in. For example, a third-party app should never ask you for your Snapchat username and password! But the developer may ask you through the connected app for more information.
Not all apps can be linked to Snapchat. Find out more about apps that aren’t made by Apple or Google.
To delete third-party Apps from Snapchat:
- Tap your profile icon and tap ⚙️ to open Settings
- Tap Connected Apps
- Tap the app you want to remove
- Tap Remove at the bottom-middle of the screen
You can also customize what Snapchat info is shared with that connected app — tap the toggle to remove access.

Snapchat doesn’t say this directly, but if a user logs in to their account on too many devices, they may be logged out automatically. Log out of the app on any other device to fix this problem. This could also happen if you connect Snapchat to a third-party app. If this is the case, go to the Snapchat settings menu and take away those permissions.
Users should also take security measures in case someone logging into their account causes Snapchat to log them out. Change your passwords often, and be careful about which apps you connect to Snapchat.
