by Ben Larweh

Ah, Snapchat stories – those ephemeral glimpses into our friends’ and loved ones’ lives that seem to disappear into the ether just as quickly as they arrived.

It can be frustrating to watch a story you really enjoyed vanish into thin air, never to be seen again. But fear not! There is actually a way to save those Snapchat stories, and in this blog post, we’ll delve into the nitty-gritty of exactly how to do it.

First, let’s start with the basics. Snapchat stories are short videos or images that are shared with your friends or on your public profile, and they disappear after 24 hours.

They can be a fun way to share snippets of your life with your friends or to keep a record of your day-to-day activities. However, if you want to keep a particular story around for longer than a day, you’ll need to take some extra steps to save it.

How to Save Snapchat Stories Without them Knowing (Secretly)

There are a number of ways to secretly save Snapchat stories. Here are a few of them:

Method 1: Screen Record the Snapchat Story Video

Screen recording is a feature that allows you to capture a video of your phone’s screen as it’s being used. This can be useful for a variety of purposes, such as creating tutorials or demonstrating app functionality. On iOS devices, screen recording is built into the operating system and can be accessed from the Control Center.

Now that we have a basic understanding of screen recording, let’s move on to the specific steps for saving a Snapchat story using this method.

How to Save a Snapchat Story with Screen Recording on iOS

  1. Make sure that screen recording is enabled on your device. On iOS 14 and later, you can do this by going to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls and adding the “Screen Recording” option to the list of controls. On earlier versions of iOS, you can find the screen recording option by swiping up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center.
  2. Open the Snapchat app and navigate to the story you want to save.
  3. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center, then tap the “Screen Recording” button.
  4. The screen recording will begin, and a red bar will appear at the top of the screen to indicate that it is in progress.
  5. Watch the story as you normally would, and the screen recording will capture everything that happens on the screen.
  6. When you’re finished watching the story, tap the red bar at the top of the screen to stop the screen recording.
  7. The screen recording will be saved to your device’s camera roll, and you can access it at any time by opening the Photos app.

You may also use third-party iOS apps such as iOS Screen Recorder.

Method 2: Use a Snapchat Story Saver

Another method to anonymously save Snapchat stories is by using Snapchat story savers. These are mobile apps and website applications that enable you to seamlessly download any Snapchat story.

With these apps and websites, you can save Snapchat stories as one video.

One Snapchat story saver is SnapBox. It has a clean user interface and is effective for saving stories on Snapchat.

By simply clicking the download icon, you can save any picture or story from its user-friendly interface. However, because it is not allowed by Snapchat, you must sign out of it before using the app.

SnapBox allows you to save them directly to your device.

How to Save Snapchat Stories to Camera Roll or Gallery

Here are specific steps for saving a Snapchat story to your gallery.

On iOS or iPhone:

  1. Open the Snapchat app and navigate to the story you want to save.
  2. Take a screenshot of the story by pressing the power and home buttons on your device at the same time. On devices with Face ID, press the power and volume up buttons instead.
  3. The screenshot will be saved to your device’s camera roll, and you can access it at any time by opening the Photos app.

On Android Devices:

  1. Open the Snapchat app and navigate to the story you want to save.
  2. Take a screenshot of the story by pressing the power and volume down buttons on your device at the same time.
  3. The screenshot will be saved to your device’s gallery, and you can access it by opening the Gallery or Photos app.

It’s worth noting that this method only allows you to save a single snap from a story at a time. If you want to save an entire story, you may need to use a different method such as screen recording or Snapchat savers, as discussed above.

How to Save Snapchat Stories After 24 Hours

Can you really save a Snapchat story after 24 hours?

If a Snapchat story has already expired, it will no longer be visible in the app, so it is not possible to access it before attempting to save it using a screen recording app or a third-party app or website.

To save a Snapchat story using a screen recording app, you will need to open the app and start the screen recording before accessing the story in the Snapchat app.

This means that you will need to know that the story is available before it expires in order to save it using this method.
