Do you want a fake Snapchat account so you can follow celebrities and other influencers while remaining anonymous? If so, this is the guide for you!
We understand that not everyone wants to be known on social media and would rather not use their real name and identity online.
Lets get right in to this!
What You Will Need For A Fake Snapchat Account
Here is a list of things you will need for your new account.
- Unique username
- Email address
- VPN* (If you want to remain completely anonymous, not really needed)
Now we can start the creation process.
1. Download The Snapchat App Or Open The App Up
Firstly, you need to download the Snapchat app on to your device.
Most major app stores will Snapchat.
However, you may already have Snapchat and want to create an alt account which we will also guide you through.
2. Tap On “Sign Up” On The Snapchat Home Screen
Next, you need to open up Snapchat.
If you just downloaded Snapchat and opened it, then there is a big “Sign Up” button on the home screen which you can tap on.
However, if you already have a Snapchat account, here are the steps to create another one.
1. From the Snapchat camera, tap on your bitmoji
This will open your Snapchat profile.
2. Tap on the cog in the top right of your Snapchat profile
This will take you to your Snapchat settings.
3. Scroll to the bottom of the settings, and tap on “Log Out”
The last option on the settings menu will be “Log Out”.
Tap on it and then you will need to confirm your decision to log out of your account.
This will take you to the Snapchat home screen.
4. Tap on “Sign Up” at the bottom right of Snapchat
Next, you can sign up for your fake account.
You can easily switch back to your other Snapchat account at anytime by logging out.
When you switch back to your account, you won’t need to enter your password again.
3. Enter The Details For Your Fake Account
Snapchat will ask you to enter the details for your fake account.
1. Enter A Name
Now, you need to enter a first name and last name for your account.
If you cannot think of one, you can use a fake name generator.
Once you have entered your name and agree, then tap on “Sign up & Accept”.
2. Enter A Birthday
Next, you will need to enter a birthday for your account.
This can be any date.
However, to use Snapchat you do need to be over the age of 13.
When you’re ready to continue, tap on “Continue”.
3. Pick A Unique Username
Now, you need to pick a username.
You will need to enter a username, and then Snapchat will tell you if it’s already taken.
You can always add some numbers, letters or, “Its” to the start of the name.
When you have found a username, tap on “Continue”.
4. Set A Password
Then, enter a secure and unique password.
Make sure there are no typos in it.
5. Enter A Mobile Number Or A Email Address
Next, you need to enter a mobile number or an email address.
We found it easier to enter an email. It’s easy to create a new email if yours is already linked to a Snapchat account.
6. Skip the “Find your friends” guide
Snapchat will ask you to help find your friends.
There is a “Skip” button in the top right as we don’t want to add our friends to this account.
7. Skip the “Create bitmoji” guide
Next, Snapchat will ask you to create a bitmoji.
You can skip this by pressing the exit cross in the top left. You may have to start the creation process, then you can end it early.
4. Add People To Your Fake Account
Now you have created your fake Snapchat account!
Next, you can add people to it.
Tap on the button “Add Friends” button which is a person with a plus button.
Then, enter the username or name of the person you want to add.
Are Fake Snapchat Accounts Illegal?
Creating a fake Snapchat account is not illegal.
However, you should not use it to trick or bully other users which may be considered illegal depending on your state’s laws.
It’s main use is so you can follow celebrities and influencers and not have your real name showing.

You are allowed to have two Snapchat accounts.
You may want a personal account and a business account which is allowed.
Now you have a anonymous or fake Snapchat account!
