SOLVED: Snapchat is bugging out and freezing!

How to Fix Snapchat that Keeps Crashing and Not Working Properly

These are the times when Snapchat connects you to your friends and the world. Over 190 million people use it every day. That means when it starts glitching, we aren’t very happy. No cap, you just had the best opportunity to upload your story from the best party of the year and Snapchat is bugging out! We realize you didn’t plan on topping the longest Snapchat streak of 1457 snaps but who knows maybe you were meant to be the next one with that trophy?!

If you’re experiencing issues with Snapchat freezing or not working in general, make sure you have the latest version of the app installed on your iPhone or Android smartphone.  But it can go deeper than just that – your Internet connection could be the real culprit. Read below to see a quick and easy fix to prevent Snapchat from freezing by getting fast and stable Internet!

Why Does Snapchat Freeze All the Time?

The Snapchat app requires a good amount of Internet bandwidth to work properly. When determining why your Snapchat is bugging out, you should look at your Internet connection. It might be that your Internet is too slow and doesn’t have enough bandwidth. Or that the connection is flaky and experiencing excessive packets loss. What’s worse is that both of these issues are often amplified when you are on the move. This happens as mobile devices can not easily transition between different Wi-Fi networks or cell towers without interrupting the connection, thus, the functionality of the apps.  Make sure you try these:

  • Restart the device
  • Clear the cache of the Snapchat app
  • Reinstall the app

Regardless of the cause, mobile devices are designed to only use one Internet connection at a time, despite the fact that they are often connected to both WiFi and cellular data. So, why not use BOTH connections for their combined speed and reliability?

Speedify Fixes Snapchat from Bugging Out and Freezing

Speedify is a fast bonding VPN service that changes the way your mobile device connects to the Internet. Instead of just using one connection, Speedify allows your mobile device to connect to the Internet over both Wi-Fi and mobile data simultaneously. This instantly increases your connection bandwidth and reliability and provides a better and uninterrupted Snapchat experience so you won’t experience issues with Snapchat.  

Speedify also monitors the quality of your Internet connections. When it detects that a signal is weak or that the network is too slow, it will automatically and seamlessly reroute the data through the other working connection. Best of all, when the other connection is back online and reliable, it begins using it again – automatically and in the background. Say goodbye to Snapchat freezing or bugging out.

In addition to delivering a faster Internet experience to your mobile device, Speedify encrypts all the data sent to and from your device. Speedify keeps you safe from compromised Wi-Fi networkssnooping ISPs, and other threats. It is also smart enough to try and send as much data as possible through Wi-Fi instead of over more expensive mobile data connections – saving you from potential overage fees from your carrier!

Using Speedify you will have the peace of mind that whenever you’re Snapchat Story is ready to be uploaded, it will not freeze or bug out, whether you’re at home, class, work or heading to any of the above.
