How to turn on notifications for Snapchat's iPhone app in 2 ways

ShutterstockIt’s easy to turn on Snapchat notifications on your iPhone.


There are plenty of ways to use Snapchat, and so there are also plenty of different notifications you can receive. That also means that if you don’t have notifications turned on, there’s a lot you could be missing out on.

Of course, the flip side to that is that there are plenty of things on Snapchat that you might not want notifications for.

Thankfully, by using both your iPhone’s Settings app and Snapchat’s own settings, you can pick and choose which Snapchat notifications you want to turn on.

Here’s how.
