How to Remove My Phone Number From Snapchat?

Do you want to remove your phone number from Snapchat? Have you been getting random calls from people?

Unfortunately, there’s no way to remove your phone number from Snapchat. However, you can hide it so other people won’t see it, including your friends.

Here’s how to do that:

  1. Go to your profile page
  2. Tap on the Gear icon
  3. Go to “Mobile Number
  4. Uncheck the “Let others find me using my mobile number.”

Alternatively, you can delete your Snapchat account to remove your phone number from the platform completely. But something tells me you don’t want that.

Keep reading to see how you can hide your phone number on Snapchat!

1. Tap on your profile picture

Once you tap on your profile picture, Snapchat will take you to your profile page. Here, you can see more information about your profile and edit everything accordingly.

Continue to your account settings by tapping on the Gear icon!

3. Select “Mobile Number.”

Good, you’ve just opened your profile settings. Now, look for the “Mobile Number” option. It’s under the “Birthday” option and above the “Email” option.

You won’t need to scroll down to find it. It’s the fourth option on the list. Once you find it, tap on it.

4. Uncheck the “Let others find me using my phone number” option

After you open the “Mobile Number” option, find the “Let others find me using my mobile number” option and uncheck it.

Do that, and no one will see your phone number on Snapchat. Moreover, people won’t be able to find you based on your phone number either.

This is the only way to “remove” your phone number from Snapchat – by hiding it. Many Snapchat users do the same thing to maintain their privacy.

No one will judge you for protecting your identity and keeping your life private. It’s the best thing you can do on social media!

Conclusion

To summarize, there’s no way to remove your phone number from Snapchat without deleting your account. That’s because you need a phone number to create a Snapchat account.

The next best thing you can do is hide your phone number. If you do that, two things will happen:

  • People won’t be able to find you on Snapchat based on your phone number
  • No one will see your phone number, including your friends

You must delete your account if you want a proper removal of your phone number from Snapchat. There’s no other way around it.
