Snapchat is one of the most popular social media apps on the market, but it’s also notoriously difficult to screenshot. There are many ways that Snapchat can detect when you’re taking a screenshot, and they’ll all result in a notification being sent to the person who was just screenshotted. In this article, we will teach you how to take screenshots on Snapchat without them knowing!
The following guide will show you how to screenshot on Snapchat without them knowing! You can easily download any received Snap or Story directly from the device.
The first step is to make sure you have a Snap or Story open on your device. You can find out how to do this by going over the following article: ‘How to take a Snapchat’. Once done, click and hold down on the empty space at the top of your screen until an options menu appears. This will show different types of screenshots that are possible with Snapchat such as high-quality photos, video clips, flash screenshots, etc. Find ‘My QR code’ which should be right next to where it says “High quality” then tap on My QR code from here all you need to do is scan another user’s snap code! To navigate back home just simply press anywhere outside of both menus and there you have it! As soon as the other user opens up your snap you will be able to see their snaps in full screen even if they have a filter on. When attempting this method with Snapchat stories, all that needs to be done is tapping ‘view story’ when viewing another user’s profile page which is located next to where it says ‘Send Snap’. Once there simply tap view story and you are good to go!
Firstly, when it comes down to either app, there are two different methods for each platform: iOS and Android devices. The latter one has no ability to save screenshots in secret mode but with some third-party programs available online they still may be downloaded without notifications sent out by developers. Therefore, if your friend uses iPhone then you’ll find a great way below! If someone tries snapping too often while trying to capture what appears on their screen at that moment then they might get suspicious about a screenshot being taken.
In this article, we’re going to review how to take a snap from Snapchat in both iOS and Android devices without the other person knowing about it! This is important because if someone takes a screenshot of your snap or story then they will be notified that you took one. However, there are ways around it with either platform by using third-party apps available on Google Play Store for Android users which can capture any Snap before sending out notifications through their cell phone carrier. If intentionally trying to catch them off guard when snapping a selfie or something similar while they aren’t looking at their screen then hopefully, no screenshots have been saved beforehand.
On iPhone X along with most recent models including the ones with Face ID, you can press and hold the Side button and either Volume up or down buttons to take a screenshot. If someone takes a screenshot of your snap on an iPhone that doesn’t have a Face ID, then they will get a notification just as if it was taken from an Android device.
There are also ways around taking screenshots on Snapchat if you don’t want the other person to know. You could open another app such as Facebook and take the screenshot through there while the other person is looking at their phone which will show the notification banner for Facebook instead of Snapchat.
Or you can use AirPlay to mirror your screen onto another device such as an Apple TV which will record your screen without sending any notifications to the other person.
There are different ways to take screenshots on Snapchat without the other person knowing depending on what type of phone you have. If you have an Android device, then all you need to do is hold down the power and volume down buttons simultaneously to take a screenshot. However, if you have an iPhone that doesn’t have a home button (such as the iPhone X), then you can use the AssistiveTouch feature to take a screenshot. To do this, go to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn on the AssistiveTouch feature. Then, press and hold the AssistiveTouch button and select Screenshot from the menu.
If you don’t want to use either of these methods, then you can use an app like AirShou or Reflector to record your screen without sending any notifications to the other person. These apps are paid but they offer a free trial so you can try them out before deciding if you want to purchase them.
Whichever method you choose, make sure that you hide the notification banner from Facebook so that the person doesn’t know that you have screenshot their story.
So there you have it! Now you know how to screenshot on Snapchat without them knowing. Just follow these simple steps and you’ll be able to save any picture or video that catches your eye. Happy Snapping!
