Watch Snapchat Videos Again!

UPDATE Dec/2013 : 

Unfortunately the technique I described here no longer works. Snapchat realised that there was a flaw allowing people to continue to view snaps long after they were sent. Unless you have a jailbroken device/unupdated version of snapchat (before about June 2013), then this technique will not work for you.

With this simple guide, you can have the same laughs over and over again – and if it was that funny… you can them upload them to your favourite social media sites!

This guide uses iExplorer (which is a free demo) for Mac, but if you want to do the same thing on your PC… go get a Mac. Just kidding, it’s a free demo for both platforms! This technique only works for iOS… no seriously this time – only iOS.

Step 1. Open iExplorer

Step 2. Click on Apps

Step 3. Find Snapchat & expand the ‘tmp’ folder

And there you have it! You should have all your most recent Snapchat videos right there on the screen! As you can see I have videos there from several days, but I’m not sure how long they last in the temporary folder – I only get the odd one or two videos.

      when did you open the video? You can’t leave it too long otherwise the app will delete the data. But because it’s such a large file *in comparison to a photo* it will be available for a short while afterwards. Also, as a precautionary – don’t close the app after watch the video (as in by double pressing home button) otherwise you may risk losing the video.

    How long did you leave it before you went on the software? If you leave it too long, Snapchat’s servers will delete the videos off your phone.
