Your Snapscore is a number determined mainly by how active you are on Snapchat. You can never lose your score, and you can increase your Snapscore by sending a lot of Snaps and posting stories on Snapchat.

If you’ve been in the Snapchat ecosystem for any amount of time, you’ve likely heard people talk about their Snapscore or Snapchat Score. So what does your Snapscore mean, and how do you increase it? Let’s find out everything you need to know about it.

What Is a Snapscore on Snapchat?

Snapscore is Snapchat’s way of rewarding you with points for your activities on the platform. It’s a score displayed on your and your friends’ Snapchat profiles.

This score is determined using factors like the number of Snaps you’ve received and sent, the Stories you’ve posted, and a “couple of other factors,” that the company doesn’t explicitly mention. Essentially, your Snap score indicates that the higher your score is, the more active you’re on the platform. A high Snapscore means a high level of activity on Snapchat.

Snapchat doesn’t mention how high your score can go (some super active users have achieved a multi-million figure score), so you can keep working on it to improve it. Also, you never lose your Snapscore—it remains as is regardless of whether you’re an active user or not.

How to View Your Snapscore

You can view your Snapscore from within the Snapchat app on your iPhone or Android phone.

To do that, launch the Snapchat app on your phone. In the app’s top-left corner, tap your profile icon or Bitmoji.

On your profile page, beneath your name, you’ll find your Snapscore (a numeric string).

To view more details about your score, tap the score. You can then see the number of Snaps you’ve sent and received.

And that’s it.

How to View Your Friend’s Snapscore

Snapchat also allows you to view your friends’ Snapscores. However, note that you can’t view someone’s Snapscore who isn’t your friend or has blocked you.

To start, launch Snapchat on your phone and tap your profile icon or Bitmoji in the top-left corner.

On the following page, select “My Friends.”

Select the friend whose Snapscore you’d like to view.

You’re done.

How to Get Your Snapchat Score Up

Seeing your friends’ high Snapscores, you might want to learn how to get your score up as well. There are a few ways you can increase your Snapscore.

One way is to send and receive more Snaps. You can send new Snaps to your friends as well as ask them to send you Snaps in return. This is an official factor that affects your Snapscore.

The other way to improve your Snapscore is to post more Stories. You can keep on creating interesting Stories letting people know about your life. Snapchat will take into consideration these Stories while determining your Snapscore.

Snapchat mentions there are a “couple of other factors” that help determine your Snapscore, but it doesn’t tell us what those are. However, it’s safe to assume those have to do with your Snapchat activities. So basically, the more Snapchat features you use, the higher your score will go.

What to Do If Your Snapscore Doesn’t Go Up

If your Snapscore won’t increase despite following the above methods, there might be an app glitch or an issue on the company’s end. In these cases, you can do a couple of things to resolve your problem.

Warning: On the internet, you may come across various services claiming to help you increase your Snapscore. Note that these services don’t work as there are no shortcuts to improve someone’s Snapscore. Stick to only the official methods and you’ll be good.

Log Out and Back Into the Snapchat App

To resolve issues with the app, one possible solution is logging out and back in to Snapchat on your iPhone or Android phone. Note that you’ll need to enter your Snapchat username and password to log back into your account. Learn what to do if you forgot your Snapchat password.

To start the log-out process, launch Snapchat on your phone and tap your profile icon or Bitmoji in the top-left corner.

social media, snapchat, how to, android

In the top-right corner of the page that opens, tap the gear icon.

social media, snapchat, how to, android

In the “Settings” menu, at the bottom, select “Log Out.”

Choose “No” in the prompt.

Close and reopen the Snapchat app. Then, enter your login details and check your Snapscore.

Report a Bug to Snapchat

If your Snapscore still hasn’t updated, there might be a bug on the company’s end. In this case, submit a bug report to Snapchat and let them look into it. Again, you can do this from within the Snapchat app on your phone.

To start, open Snapchat on your phone. Then, tap the profile icon or Bitmoji in the top-left corner and choose the gear icon in the top-right corner.

On the “Settings” page, select “I Spotted a Bug.”

On the “Bug” page, choose “Profile.”

Tap the text field and explain your issue. Optionally, attach a screenshot of your current Snapscore if you want. Then, tap “Choose Topic” and select “Snapscore.”

Send your bug report by tapping “Submit” at the bottom of the page.

Snapchat will receive and review your report. You’ll have to wait for Snapchat to get back to you with more details.


That’s all there is to know about Snapchat’s activity-based score known as Snapscore. While you’re at it, learn how to get a zodiac sign for your Snapchat profile.
