2. To access Snapchat’s settings, use the gear symbol in the top right corner of the screen.

3. Scroll down to Additional Services and select Manage from the drop-down menu.

What to Do If Your Camera Still Isn’t Working

If none of these solutions are successful in restoring camera access in Snapchat, there may be another explanation for the problem. Here are some more things you may do in order to get your Snapchat camera to work properly again.

1. Restart the application. There are occasions when all that is required is a simple restart of the application itself. To do this, ensure that the application is completely closed and that it is not running in the background.

2. Clear the cache on your Snapchat account. Clearing your Snapchat cache may be done by heading into your Snapchat settings and clicking on “Clear Cache.”

3. Snapchat should be updated. It is possible that you are using an out-of-date version of the app, which is causing your camera access to function erroneously. To upgrade your iOS device, head to the App Store and select Apps, followed by your profile in the upper right corner. If an update is available for Snapchat, scroll down the list of your applications until you locate it and hit the Update icon to download it.

On Android, launch the Google Play Store app, choose Menu, and then select My apps & games from the drop-down menu. Scroll down the list until you come to Snapchat, and then press Update.
