How to secretly screenshot Snapchat without giving yourself away!

When Snapchat first started, one of its biggest selling features was that no matter what snaps you sent out; silly, stupid, or otherwise, recipients would not be able to screenshot or store your snap without your knowledge. 

Here are a few ways that you may be able to get away with quality screenshots in Snapchat without being detected.

Use another device

If you're really desperate to capture and preserve someone else's snap, pick up your tablet or your friend's phone to capture the snap-tastic footage.

Don't bother taking pictures, but, rather, record a video of the snap. Be sure to start recording before you tap on the snap to open it so you catch the whole thing.

Delay the screenshot notification

Load up Snapchat, go to the snap you want to open and make sure it loads completely (you can tell a snap is loading if the icon beside a name isn't a solid square, but more like a spiral in a circle).

Turn off your WiFi, your Bluetooth, your cellular data and everything else that keeps your phone connected, and then turn on Airplane Mode. Then, go back to that snap, tap on it, take your screenshots, wait around 30 seconds, and turn your connections back on.

QuickTime Screen Capture

QuickTime's screen capture feature is probably the only guaranteed way to capture high-quality Snapchat videos or pictures. It isn't the simplest technique to use, but it's for sure the most efficient!

All you have to do is connect your iPhone to your computer, open up QuickTime player, and choose File » New Movie Recording in the menu bar. Once the screen loads, hover your mouse beside the recording button. Clicking the small arrow that appears will show different recording options; you want to choose your phone as the Movie Recording input. It's typically near the top of the list.
