Approximately 90% of the reports listed “logins” as the main problem, with a few also mentioning “app” and “server” problems.

When it was first released in 2011, Snapchat was intended to be an app that would let users transmit each other photographs and videos, with the catch that the content would be removed after a certain period. The app’s emphasis has moved in recent years to be more on “Stories,” which are streams of the information uploaded by users and brands throughouthe a day.
