How To Pause Your Snapchat Score

Hey there! So you’re looking to learn how to pause your Snapchat score? Well, you’ve come to the right place. As an avid Snapchat user myself, I understand the desire to take a break and not have your score increase. Whether you’re going on vacation, taking a digital detox, or simply want to put a pause on your Snapchat activity, I’ll guide you through the steps to pause your score temporarily.

What is a Snapchat Score?

Before we dive into the details, let’s quickly go over what a Snapchat score is. Your Snapchat score is a number that represents the total number of snaps you have sent and received. It’s a way for Snapchat to gamify the platform and encourage engagement among users. Every time you send or receive a snap, your score increases.

Step 1: Log Out of Snapchat

The first step to pause your Snapchat score is to log out of the app. To do this, simply follow these steps:

  1. Open the Snapchat app on your smartphone.
  2. Tap on your profile icon in the top left corner of the screen.
  3. Tap on the gear icon in the top right corner to access your settings.
  4. Scroll down and tap on “Log Out” to log out of your account. This will temporarily pause your Snapchat activity and stop your score from increasing.

Keep in mind that while you’re logged out, you won’t be able to send or receive snaps or view your friends’ stories. However, your account will still be visible to your friends, and they can send you messages.

Step 2: Use Snapchat in Offline Mode

If you want to use Snapchat in offline mode without increasing your score, here’s what you can do:

  1. After logging out, turn off your Wi-Fi and mobile data to disconnect from the internet.
  2. Open the Snapchat app and use it as you normally would.
  3. You can take photos or record snaps, apply filters, add captions, and even draw on them.
  4. However, since you’re offline, these snaps won’t be sent or received, and your score will remain unchanged.

This method allows you to use Snapchat and have fun with the creative features without worrying about your score increasing.

Step 3: Reconnect and Update Score

Once you’re ready to resume your Snapchat activity and update your score, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your Wi-Fi or mobile data to reconnect to the internet.
  2. Open the Snapchat app, and you’ll see a notification indicating that you have snaps pending.
  3. Send or receive snaps as usual, and your score will start increasing again.

Remember, pausing your Snapchat score is temporary, and it will start increasing again once you’re back online and actively using the app.


So there you have it! You now know how to pause your Snapchat score temporarily. Whether you want to take a break from the constant score updates or simply want to limit your Snapchat activity, these steps will help you achieve that. Just remember to log out of Snapchat and use it in offline mode, and when you’re ready to resume, reconnect and start using the app again. Happy snapping!
