Report Someone’s Snapchat Account

To report someone’s Snapchat account, you need to report them from their profiles. Follow the steps below to do that:

1. Open a chat with that person

If the person you want to ban isn’t your friend, skip this step and go to that person’s profile. You need to open a chat with them if they’re your friend.

2. Tap on their profile picture

What can get you banned on Snapchat?

If you’ve used social media before, you must know some things that can get you banned from them.

Snapchat is the same. Here are some of the things that will get you banned on Snapchat:

– Spam content
– Nudity or sexually suggestive content
– Adult and pornographic content
– Hate Speech
– Invasions of Privacy
– Impersonation
– Bullying
– Harassment
– Illegal Content
– Copyrighted content
– Terrorism
– Threats
– Violence

Once you report someone, the Snapchat team will analyze that person’s account and content and assess if they should be banned or not.

If the person in question is found in clear disregard of the community guidelines, then Snapchat will ban them outright.

How long does the Snapchat ban last?

Snapchat uses three types of bans, informally known as:

– The First Time Ban
– The Repeated Offence Ban
– The Permanent Ban

The First Time Ban typically lasts 24 hours and is given to users at their first offense. They also haven’t done anything too severe to warrant a longer ban.

Think of first-time offenders as regular Joes who post spam content or offend someone, and that person reports them.

The Repeated Offence Ban is given to people who continue to break the community guidelines even if they’ve been banned.

Snapchat is less lenient with these people, with bans lasting up to a month in some cases.

Lastly, the Permanent Ban is given either to serious repeat offenders who won’t learn their lesson or to first-time offenders who do serious stuff like posting pornographic content or graphic content on the platform.

These people are permanently banned and can’t use their Snapchat accounts again.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.
