Snapchat users have long kept their streaks alive for months and sometimes years, trading pictures back and forth on the popular app every single day. If you ever lost a streak, here’s a guide on how to get your streak back.

Snapchat has long served as a social media platform that provides quick communication between its users using purely sharing photos.
