Snapchat is a multimedia app that allows its user to chat, take pictures and videos, and also share video stories on their stories.

However, just like other social media apps, Snapchat doesn’t have a built-in screen recorder leaving most people confused about how to screen record on the Snapchat app.

One unique fact about the app is that Snapchat notifies users whenever they take a screenshot or take a screen recording of their chats.

This has got many people asking how to screen record Snapchat without them knowing but that’s not what we’re going to discuss here.

If you want to screen record on your android phone, simply open the inbuilt screen recorder on Snapchat and move through the chats, the same thing applies to iPhone users.

Without wasting much time, let’s get into the step-by-step procedure on how to screen record on Snapchat.

How to Screen Record Snapchat without them Knowing

At the time of publication, there’s no valid way of screen recording on Snapchat without the other person knowing.

Before now, you could be able to turn on airplane mode or turn off your data but Snapchat discovered the loophole and fixed it earlier this year.

However, reports have it that you could mirror your screen to your laptop and use your phone camera to capture the content, it works perfectly.

However, if you want to screen record anyways, It’s either you inform the other party that you want to screen record their chats or you do it without remorse.


Q. Will Snapchat know if I screen record?

Yes, Snapchat knows when you screen record and will likely inform the other person too.
