Snapchat: Here’s How to Turn On Ghost Mode

Prevent everyone from seeing your location

Did you know that Snapchat allows you to turn on Ghost Mode, which prevents all other users from being able to see your current location? Our guide will show you how this works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Snapchat application on iOS.

Step 1: On the camera screen, swipe down on the screen to open the Snap Map.

Step 2: Tap the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen to open the location settings menu. Note: You can also get to the location settings menu through the app’s main setting menu (tap the gear icon in the top-right corner of your Snapchat profile to open the app’s main settings menu).

Step 3: Tap the toggle to the right of Ghost Mode.

Step 4: Tap one of the three options, based on how long you want Ghost Mode to remain on. If you tap “Until Turned Off,” you will need to repeat these steps to manually turn Ghost Mode off if you want your friends to be able to see your location.
