Want to take a screenshot on Snapchat without the other person knowing? We’ll help you out — or at least try to.
This is a judgment-free zone, but let’s acknowledge that it’s not exactly what Snapchat, one of the few no-screenshots-allowed social media platforms, wants us to do.
Assuming you’ve just got to capture an awesome, life-changing conversation, here’s how one TikTok user, @jared.brady, gets the job done.
In the video, he opened the app with a message “screenshot this without me knowing.”
First, he hit “Snap Reply.” When the new window opened, he slid it away. Then he swiped around to reopen the chat window.
While the chat was still small, he easily took a screenshot. Then he tapped the window to make the chat window full-size again.
People on TikTok were torn by Brady’s technique. Some thought it worked, but others said it didn’t anymore.
“It doesn’t work anymore. Too many people let the secret out and Snap fixed it,” one person said.
“Both my phones can do it,” another wrote.
Other users offered alternative methods of secret screenshoting.
“Open another screen on your phone and slide over without letting go of the other page. Works too,” someone suggested.
“Just camera and pull down,” a user added.
“Could you not do a screen recording then do a screenshot from the video,” another advised.
