How to Save Snapchat Videos without Sending Notification (iPhone and Android)

Sometimes, you may want to save silly or funny videos from your friends on Snapchat, and also, don't want him/her to know about it. Actually, it's not that hard. This tip tells you how to save Snapchat videos secretly on both iPhone and Android.

1. iPhone
The situation on iPhone is a little complicated. Since Apple forbids any screen recording app in App Store, you will need a computer and install an AirPlay receiver on the computer, which can mirror you iPhone to the computer and offers a screen recording function. There are AirServer, Apowersoft iPhone/iPad Recorder, Reflector, etc. You can choose any one of them since the theory and steps are pretty much similar. Right, here are the steps:

Step one: Open the AirPlay receiver on your computer, and put your iPhone and computer under the same WiFi network.

Step two: Open the Control Center on your iPhone and tap on "AirPlay". Choose your computer name and turn on the "Mirroring" option on the AirPlay list. Then, your iPhone screen will be projected to the computer.

Step three: Open a Snapchat video, in the meanwhile, click the record button which usually is located above the projected screen.

Step Four: Click the stop button to finish the recording.

The video recorded will be saved to the computer. And the sender will not get notification when you save the Snapchat video in that way.

2. Android
Compared to iPhone, it is much easier to record Snapchat video on Android. There are plenty of screen recording apps in Google Play Store. One of the best ones is AZ Screen Recorder. It requires no root if your phone is running Android 5.0 or above. Here are the steps of using it to save Snapchat videos.

Step one: Install it on your Android phone.

Step two: Open it. Its interface is very simple, just some icons floating on the screen.

Step three: Open a Snapchat video and tap on the first icon on AZ's floating interface.

Step four: Pull down the notification tray and tap the stop button on AZ Screen Recorder.

The video will be saved to your Gallery, you can also check it out on the recording list within AZ app. And also, the sender won't get any notification.

That is the tip for you to save Snapchat videos without the sender knowing on both iPhone and Android. :)

How do u delete a snapchat account.

According to http://appamatix.com/delete-snapchat-messages-conversations:

If you're interested in deleting the Snapchat messages you either sent or received while using the app all you need to do is a few steps and you'll be saved from a potentially embarrassing moment that no one wants to be stuck in.
Follow these steps to delete the messages permanently on your phone. Keep in mind that this won't delete the messages on someone else's phone it will only be on yours. This is because Snapchat downloads all messages on people's phone and not on the Snapchat server. This is still a lifesaver, though for when you are suddenly aware of people looking over your shoulder (yes, I do frequently take public transit, why do you ask?) or else you are nervous about somebody getting their physical hands onto your physical phone.
  1. Open the Snapchat app and you'll see a little Snapchat ghost at the top center.
  2. Tap on the ghost and you'll see your Snapchat icon with your name and score. Tap on the gear icon at the top left to get into the settings.
  3. From there, scroll down to Account Actions and tap on "Clear Conversations" in that menu.
  4. You will see a list of all of your messages with an x right next to it. You will get a message that says "Are you sure you want to clear this conversation?" and you can get the option to clear and clear and don't ask again.
  5. You could alternatively choose to clear all of your messages at once if you don't want to have anyone see your messages at all.
NOTE: When you clear the conversation on your feed, it won't delete any saved or sent messages in your conversation. You can delete your saved messages as well, however you can't delete messages that have been sent to someone else.
