Is Snapchat down, not working or undergoing an outage today in 2023?

Snapchat is one of the popular names in the instant messaging segment. In fact, it is the service that made ‘ephemeral messaging’ a trend.

Snapchat bets on providing absolute privacy between participants of a chat. For this, the service integrates some features such as deleting received messages as soon as you open them.

The app even notifies you if the other person takes a screenshot of the conversation. These features (along with others) made it a fundamental communication tool for millions.


That said, a service outage can affect communication between many people. So, we have created this tracker where we will follow up when Snapchat goes down or stops working in 2023 for any reason.

Following are some instructions that’ll help you go through this tracker easily:

  • This is a text-only tracker that focuses on highlighting the incidents of outage and/ the service in question going down or becoming temporarily dysfunctional for some reason.
  • The outage reports highlighted in this tracker are based on user reports on social media platforms like Twitter & Reddit, along with Downdetector – a platform that monitors real-time problems and outages in popular services.
  • The time of the update is mentioned in IST and is in 24-hour format. Also note, the text updates will show up in ascending order with the latest coming at the bottom.
  • That’s all for the instructions.
    Note: Our team is trying hard to keep this tracker updated with all the latest info. However, if & when you feel something is missing, wrong, or should be added, do not hesitate to tip us in the comments or through email.
