You will see numbers next to your firend’s name on Snapchat, that show the streak count with your friend.

If this has happened to you and you lost your streak of Snapchat, then no need to worry. In this article, we will help you how to recover your lost Snapchat streak by contacting customer support.
Things to Know Before Recovery of Snapstreak
Before claiming your Streaks on Snapchat, you need to consider a few things.
- Make sure you and your friend have sent Snaps within a period of 24 hours.
