How to Increase Your Snapchat Score?

How Can You Increase Your Snap Score?

The solution is simple – the more snaps you send, the higher your Snap score will be.

You can send the same snap to multiple people, which will count as 1 point.

The solution we propose is simple – subscribe to several popular Snap stars and send them snaps.

This will increase your Snap score quickly, and you can rinse and repeat.

Follow the steps below to do this:

1. Use the Search bar to find popular snap stars

First, you need to use the search bar to search for popular Snap stars on Snapchat.

When you open Snapchat, go to Chats. From there, look to the top-left corner for a magnifying glass icon.

That’s the Search function. Tap on it to open the search function.

Once you open the search function, type in “snap stars” and go ahead with the search.

Once you search for “snap stars,” you’ll see a list of popular people on Snapchat.

Select “View More” to expand the list and see everyone on it.

You’ll need the expanded list because you’ll be subscribing to many people on this list.

This part is integral to what you’ll be doing later.

Do you see the “Subscribe” button now that you have the expanded list?

Give it a tap! For a dozen times on a dozen people. All jokes aside, you should subscribe to multiple snap stars on this list.

Later on, you’ll be sending them snaps to increase your snap score.

Don’t worry. They won’t mind. Their fans receive snaps every day, so they’re used to it.

See the golden star icon next to their names?

It means that the person is verified on Snapchat, which means other people can subscribe to you.

Don’t expect them to add you back, though. Because they likely won’t.

You won’t find someone else willing to be spammed with snaps like you’re about to do with these celebrities.

2. Take a picture

Now that you’ve added some celebrities by subscribing to them, it’s time to send them snaps.

First, take a picture by using the Camera Feature. It’s on the menu at the bottom of the Snapchat bar.

After you take a picture, tap on “Send to” to go to your list of friends

3. Select the celebrities in the “Recents” menu

The celebrities you subscribed to will appear in your ”Recents” menu.

But only if they have messaging allowed. Many celebrities only have their public stories enabled.

Even if you subscribe to them, you can’t send them messages.

They know about this trick and don’t want to be spammed.

But Snapchat is filled with celebrities, and it’s easy to find some who haven’t disabled their messaging.

Select them and send them the snap. Then, wait for some time and send them other snaps.

But only do it in a group by sending a snap to multiple people at once.

It’s not worth sending the snaps individually because it’ll take too long.

4. Use the “Last Snap” function

After you send a snap to multiple people, you’ll see the “Last Snap” option appear in your “Recents.”

This allows you to send a snap to the same people you sent previously.

The next time you send them snaps, you need to select this option, and that’s it.

You no longer have to select them individually because that’ll take too long.

Alternatively, you can create a “Group,” but it serves the same purpose.

If you create a group, you can only send snaps to that group.

In a way, this option is much more efficient than using the “Last Snap” function.

If you were to send a snap to your friend in the meantime, the “Last Snap” would change to your friend.

You must manually select all those celebrities again to send them a snap.

To create a group, tap on the “+Create Group” button when trying to send a snap.

This will take you to your contacts page, where you can select multiple people to add to your group.

Select all the Snap Stars and put them in the same group.

When selecting all the celebrities, tap on “Create Group.”

This will create a new group, and you send the snaps to the group.

Once you return to the previous page, you’ll see the new group in the “New Groups” section.

Select it, and tap on the blue arrow in the bottom-right corner.

Great, you’ve just sent the snap to the group!

Maintain a Snap Streak with Your Friends

Another great way of increasing your Snap score is to start a snap streak with your friends.

This is, by far, the safest method of increasing your Snap score.

But you need a friend who’s just as committed as you are.

The Snap Streak will reset if you forget to send each other a snap for even one day.

When the Snap Streak is about to expire, you’ll receive a notification from Snapchat.

Your friend will receive one as well. You don’t need to set a reminder to send a Snap.

But it’s ideal for sending a Snap as soon as you wake up, so you don’t forget.

If you keep this up for a long time, your Snap Streak will increase naturally.

It can even reach tens of thousands of points if you’re disciplined and committed.


To increase your Snapchat score, all you need to do is send snaps to your friends.

Maintaining a Snap Streak with someone else is simple enough if you’re committed.

Alternatively, you’ll receive bonus points for adding friends and posting more stories.

If you want to be efficient, try the celebrity solution.

Add as many celebrities as you want, put them all in a group, and send them a snap.

You’ll receive a proportionate number of points back. If you send a snap to 70 people, you’ll increase your Snap Score by 70.

Can you Snapchat yourself to increase your score?

Yes, you can do that. You don’t need a friend to build a Snap Streak.

Search for yourself on Snapchat, add yourself as a friend, and then send yourself a snap.

Do this daily to build a Snap Streak and increase your Snap Score.

You can even send multiple snaps at once to increase your score.

Snapchat hasn’t removed this feature yet, but we don’t know what they’ll do in the future.

How many points is 1 Snap on Snapchat?

One snap is worth one point on Snapchat. The Streak Score combines the total amount of snaps sent and received.

So, when you receive a snap, that’s one point. If you send a snap back, that’s another point.

You have two points after exchanging two snaps with your friend.

Do Snap Videos count as 2 points?

Not exactly. Snap videos are calculated differently in terms of points. You get one point for every 10 seconds you watch.

So, if the video is 30 seconds long, you get three points.

If the video is 60 seconds long, you get six points, and so on.

However, you won’t receive the point if you don’t reach another set of 10 seconds.

For instance, if you’ve watched 35 seconds of a video, you’ll get three points and not four.

Can your Snap Score go down?

No, never. The Snap Score can only go up and not down.

However, Snapchat experiences glitches from time to time, and this may cause your Snapchat score to decrease.

Several users have reported this problem multiple times.

If this happens to you, report the issue to Snapchat support and wait for them to reply.

They’ll restore your original Snapchat score if you tell them the original value.

Use the “Report a problem” button on Snapchat to talk to Support.

How high of a Snap Score is too high?

Your Snap Score said something about your activity and commitment on Snapchat.

If your Snap Score is between 0 and 1,000, you’ve recently created your account, or you’re not very active on Snapchat.

You should snap some more because this score is embarrassing.

If you have a score between 1,000 and 50,000, you’re almost at the bottom of the barrel.

You don’t use Snapchat often, but you talk to your friends occasionally.

If your score is between 50,000 and 200,000, you’re right in the middle of the pack.

This is your average Snapchatter who likes using Snapchat to share life moments with friends.

A score between 200,000 and 400,000 means you’re quite popular on Snapchat and may even have the following base.

You’re sending snaps to your friends daily!

Lastly, if your score is between 700,000 and above a million, you’re one of the most popular people on Snapchat.

Maybe you’ve had Snapchat for a long time, or people are following you for your content.

Either way, you’re a celebrity on Snapchat!
