We have heard numerous sources report that Snapchat will be deleting inactive accounts starting in July 2019. The rumor floating around is from the “creator of Snapchat” who is worried the app has too many users and is slowing down. This is absolutely not the case as Snapchat wants as many users as possible. When they go to investors, they want to report 200+ million users. The do want as many active users as possible as well, but they are not going to delete inactive accounts.
You may also have read or heard that on July 28th, 2020 Snapchat will be closing or shutting down. This is part of the same rumor and is not true. You can find the full text of the rumor below:
