Are you tired of being bombarded with unwanted Snapchat keystroke notifications? If so, you are not alone. A good number of Snapchat lovers find tons of keystroke notifications quite annoying.

In this article, we'll show you how to turn off those pesky Snapchat keystroke notifications on a range of devices.

How to Tell if Someone is Typing on Snapchat

As soon as someone starts writing you a message, you will receive a notification on the app that a new message is imminent. Some people find this totally unnecessary. But it can get even more annoying because the notification persists even if the sender stops typing and doesn't actually send the message to you.



Snapchat is programmed so that simply putting a space in the text field triggers a notification to the recipient of the intended message. But therein lies the problem, because sometimes a user mistakenly types on the text field. This means that you will receive a notification, but your friend will not write.

Can I turn off typing notifications on Snapchat?

You will inevitably get the knock notification on Snapchat after you start a conversation with one of your contacts. Unfortunately, there is no option (as of December 2022) to disable this pop-up notification for all your contacts.

However, you can turn off message notifications for individuals in the Snapchat app. Let's see how to turn off message notifications for each device. The downside of disabling message notifications is that while you won't get the annoying typing notification, you also won't get a notification that you've received a message.

If you are an iPhone user, you can quickly turn off messaging notifications for individuals in the Snapchat app on your phone.

  2. Tap the settings icon to open your phone's settings section.

How to Disable Snapchat Typing Notifications on Windows, Mac, and Chromebook

One of the reasons Snapchat is extremely popular is that there is a Windows version that offers the same experience as the iPhone and Android versions. To snap on a Windows, Mac, or Chromebook, you need to download the Snapchat extension and add it to your browser. Chrome and Firefox are particularly compatible with Snapchat.



With the Snapchat browser extension, you can share your best moments with friends and family right from your PC. But if you don't want to be inundated with keystroke notifications, you can easily turn them off. Here are the steps:

  1. Open your browser.
  2. Open "Settings". In most browsers, the "Settings" button is located in the upper right corner. You may need to click on the ellipsis (three little dots) to open the settings.
  3. Click on “Privacy and security”.
  4. Click on “Permissions”.
  5. Slide the switch next to the Snapchat extension to the "Off" position.

Your changes should be saved automatically, paving the way for a notification-free capture experience.
