Snapchat is a mobile application for Android and iOS devices that focuses on private person-to-person media sharing. It was the first messaging app to introduce stories and an auto-delete feature that would delete text threads after a set amount of time had passed. Yet, sometimes, that feature fails to work and message threads that could contain sensitive or embarrassing things remain intact. You would probably have to uninstall the app and hope that the problem would not reappear when you reinstall it.
And this doesn’t sound good, does it?
Thankfully, there are ways to delete Snapchat conversations permanently that don’t involve such drastic measures. In this article, we will go over these ways, providing you with a full guide for each one.
To begin with, we will try to delete a part of a Snapchat conversation using the app itself. While this is supposed to be an automatic process, Snapchat also gives its users the ability to delete conversations manually.
In this particular part, we will try to delete only one thread.
Snapchat also allows you to delete entire conversation threads en masse with the press of a few buttons.
Here is how to do that.
If Snapchat cannot delete conversations permanently for some reason, you could try doing a localised data wipe. Each app has its own segment of data where it stores related information. There is a way to circumvent the app altogether by going to Settings and deleting Snapchat-related data from there.

Here is what you need to do:
If the clear data method doesn’t work either, there might be a more serious issue with your phone’s software in general. We understand that a total factory reset or uninstalling and reinstalling Snapchat are not an option as they require too much time and effort. What is more, you will lose all your data in the process.
This is why we have another option that will help you circumvent any issues and delete Snapchat conversations permanently.
That option is echoshare Data Eraser. An app that will:

When it first came out, Snapchat’s main selling point was the fact that all messages sent were automatically deleted. Yet, sometimes, this feature fails to work causing all kinds of trouble and privacy concerns. In this article, we went over how to manually delete Snapchat messages and fix any software issues causing the problem.
If none of the solutions work, you may have to resort to deleting the app altogether. If you want to keep some chats, though, you can always create a backup beforehand.
