Using third-party apps is the easiest way to view private snaps on Snapchat. However, it is also illegal. Using third-party apps will violate your terms of service and may get you banned from using the app altogether.
Even if the app doesn’t ban you, the content you share with other users through those apps might still be considered illegal under copyright laws. That makes using these apps risky at best and downright dangerous at worst.
The second method involves using device features like notifications or call logs to capture images saved in memory. This method is not very reliable since it requires precise timing and technical knowledge about how these devices work (or if you’re lucky enough to be able to access someone else’s phone).
It also only works if there are new photos waiting for you in memory or if someone has left their phone unlocked while they were using Snapchat (which is not very common). Even then, there’s no guarantee that this method will work every time because people who send you snaps can block these notifications from appearing in your notification panel after sending one.
