How to get Snapchat to stop crashing:

First, make sure your phone's software as well as the Snapchat app on your phone are up to date. Snapchat updates the app regularly to fix glitches and bugs so updating may help solve the problem. Check the "Updates" part of the App Store or on Google Play. If Snapchat isn't listed, then you're running on the most recent update.

Next, try completely closing out the app and re-opening it. Don't just exit the app and use another one, actually close the app so that it's no longer running. You can also try logging in and out of your account.

If none of these tricks successful get the app to stop crashing, your next step is deleting the app all together and then re-installing it. This will also ensure that you're running the most recent version of the app possible and serve as a sort of reset for the app. Make sure you know your password before doing this because you'll have to log back in once you re-download the app.

Lastly, make sure you're not using any third-party apps for Snapchat. Snap prohibits this, according to the terms of service of the app. Such apps or plug-ins can compromise the security of your account and even the security of the people you Snap. If you have a third-party app or plug-in installed you may have trouble logging into your account or Snapchat may lock the account. Snap advises that you delete such apps and change your password after you do so.

If none of these solutions work, you may just have to wait out whatever glitch is causing the app to crash.
