How to download Snapchat data on Android

Want to find out what information Snapchat has stored about you or retrieve all your sent and received snaps? You can easily export all your Snapchat content using its My Data feature. Today, I will walk you through a step-by-step guide to downloading your Snapchat data on an Android phone.

Before we delve into the steps, let’s get a basic idea of what type of data you can download from Snapchat.

What type of data can you download from Snapchat?

You can retrieve various information about your activity that the Snapchat app stores in its cloud system. The list includes:

  • Your account information includes your username, registered email address, phone number linked to your account, friends, and login history.
  • Bitmoji.
  • Copies of sent and received snaps. However, it doesn’t include the chats that disappeared after viewing.
  • Saved chats and My AI talk history.
  • Snapchat Story and Spotlight history.
  • Snaps that you’ve saved to memories.
  • Snapchat Support History.
  • Other information such as purchase and shopping history, search history, custom lenses, Snap Maps location data, etc.

The availability of these data in the exported file will depend upon your chosen settings. If you are backing up content before deleting your Snapchat account, select all the media types.

Now that you know what data you can access, let’s quickly download your Snapchat data on an Android phone.
