There are ways to screenshot a Snapchat message without informing the senderCredit: Getty – Contributor
Use another device
This technically isn’t a ‘screenshot’ but if you have another device that can take pictures, like an iPad or your friend’s phone, you can take a photo of a message or image that you’ve been sent on Snapchat.
The quality might not be great but the sender definitely won’t know you’ve taken the photo.
Screenshot then instantly uninstall
This method isn’t for everyone, especially Snapchat addicts.
That’s because you’ll be uninstalling the app purely for your screenshotting to go undetected.
Don’t worry though, you can get it back afterwards.
You need to load the Snapchat that you want to screenshot and then turn off your data, WiFi and Bluetooth.
Take the screenshot and the sender won’t be informed because Snapchat is not connected to the internet.
Without reconnecting your device, exit Snapchat and uninstall the app.
Then, restart your device and reinstall Snapchat.
Just make sure you have your login memorised or noted down.
This tip is for people who have a device running Android 10 or above.
It does not work on iPhones.
Open the Snapchat you want to screenshot and then pull down on the screen to open your Android Control Panel.
Find the ‘Screen recorder’ function and click ‘Record’.
Click ‘Stop’ once you’re done recording.
This will only work when you’re in the middle of viewing a Snapchat.
