The app is “not flawless” the motive behind so many. For example, if you ever take a screenshot of a snap, or story, it will notify the original poster.
However, there is a problem arising with the jailbroken users using Snapchat that the app is not working after the jailbreak. It does not allow users to login into your Snapchat account or crash when launching. In this post, we will show how to fix the Snapchat not working on your jailbroken iPhone.
