Snapchat’s Snapcode

These are the steps to retrieve your Snapcode:

  1. On the main screen, tap the profile icon of your user.
  2. Once in your profile, tap the gear icon at the top right to enter the settings.

  4. Now tap Create Snapcode.
  5. You will be brought to a screen where you simply have to type in a URL and tap Create.

Accessing the Snapcode will allow you to share your profile in two ways.

You can show the retrieved code on your phone to anyone so they can scan it and then tap the Add Friend button. Also, you can save it as an image they can also scan later from Add Friends on the profile section, or by tapping the + human icon at the top right corner of all the main pages in the app.

Then tap the small ghost icon at the right of the Find friends search box to enable your camera roll. Finally, select any image with a Snapcode to add a friend.
