If you don't have the option to receive notifications in Snapchat, you may not know when a message arrives. You can increase the speed with which you respond to messages by turning on notifications. The method depends on the operating system, iOS or Android, so choose from the method below that works best for your device.

Steps

Method 1 of 2: On iOS

Turn on Snapchat Notifications Step 1

Step 1. Go to Settings on your iPhone

To enable Snapchat notifications in iOS, you will need to adjust your mobile settings, not Snapchat settings.

Step 2. Tap on "Notification Center"

If your iPhone is running iOS 6 or older, tap the "Notifications" menu.

Step 3. Scroll down the list of apps until you find Snapchat

On iOS 6 and older, it may be necessary to set the Notifications button to "On" for the list of apps to appear.

Step #4. Click on Snapchat and choose your notification settings

Under "Alert Style" you can choose banners or windows -- banners appear briefly at the top of the screen, while windows appear in a large window in the middle of the screen.

  • Make sure the alert style is set to "None", as this will prevent the notifications from appearing at all.
  • From this screen you can also decide if you want to turn on the badge icons – these are small, red numbers that appear in the Snapchat icon when there are snaps waiting for you to be viewed. Set "Badge App Icon" to on, if you want.
  • On iOS 5 and later, you can also decide whether you want alerts to appear in the notification center (which will appear when you swipe the screen from top to bottom) and whether you want them to show up on your lock screen. Set both buttons to "On" as desired.

Method 2 of 2: On Android devices

Turn on Snapchat Notifications Step 5

Step #1. Go to your Snapchat Settings

If you have an Android device, you can enable notifications right after startup by opening the Snapchat app. Then go to your profile (scroll up from the main camera page), go to the settings page (click the gear on the right, at the top of the recent conversations page), scroll down to "Advanced" and tap the "Notifications Settings" bar. From this point you can indicate the notifications of your preference.

Step 2. If you still have problems, try clearing your cache

If your notification settings are turned on, but you're still not getting notifications, you can clear Snapchat data on the Android app's info page. When you're done with that, log back into Snapchat and you should start receiving the notifications again.
