Snapchat Charms FAQ

What are snapchat charms? Snapchat charms are Snapchat’s latest recreation of trophies.

They are characters and emojis that you get with friends to signify your relationship with someone else.

Every one of your friends on Snapchat will share a charm or multiple with you and you can get more by snapping more often with each other.

How to get charms on snapchat? Snapchat will automatically give you charms based on various factors of your friendships, their birthday, how long you’ve been friends, how often you snap, etc.

The best way to increase the number of charms is to do two things, make sure both you and your friend have filled in their complete profile and you both snap with each other regularly.

What’s The Average Snapchat Score? There is no specific average Snapchat score but most people’s friendships fall between Snap Sophomores and Snap Heroes.

I’ve personally only seen a couple of people with the Snap Legends charm.

    1. I may have a snapscore round about 20 000,but my friend’s snapscore has exceeded 200,00. And our charm is legends. Is that an correct average?

    2. I’m at 260,522 snap legends with one of my friends. Unless they changed modified the app or something then yeah you can keep going higher. Also in the article it says “200,000+” the plus meaning it can go higher. Also in the article the author stated that it was just a rough estimate on the snapscore height.

    3. No, its the highest level…. Btw 🎉congrats 🥳 for ur score…. Me and my sister’s having 297,456 score

    1. aighk I have a question it says that to be a snap legend your score should be roughly more than or between 150k + what if you have a snap score of a million which is difficult to have what would be your snap charm ?

  1. I’m born on the 23rd August in Australia opposite timezones and it’s giving me the Virgo charm even tho I’m a Leo

      1. NO. you cant be both. you need to see on cafe astrology for example, enter your information and see where the sun is

  2. I just found out my husband has a legend status score with another female. He says he hasn’t snapped with her and it must be a gliche or he’s been hacked lol. I don’t think that’s true. Can anyone confirm this

    1. a shared status only shows the average snapscore between the 2 people, not how often you have snapped them. I have plenty of people I have never snapped but we still have snap legends.

    2. A legend score just means both of their snap scores are very high. Snapchat takes your score and the other person’s score and averages them together. You don’t even have to have a conversation to have a high average snap score.

    3. It’s most likely not true, that he has been hacked or it’s a glitched I work at Snapchat and glitches are very rare and we assure you that no accounts can get hacked.

    4. he has a good amount of snapscore because he snaps more to other or recives snaps which appaers in another profile he is true dont sus him

  3. So if me and someone get a good score is that because we have Snapchat to each other all the time or is it a total score of what we both do n Snapchat

    1. No, that’s the Group Journalist. The Group Journalist is the one who saves chats. The Group Paparazzi sends lots of photos and selfies.

  4. Some of you are honestly so annoying someone just literally explained that it doesn’t matter if you have never spoken with the person you will still get the heroes charm regardless because Snapchat averages your points with theirs, how hard is that to grasp people?

  5. So for the snap hero’s me and my friend have 30k for our average and we still snap masters and yoou said snap legends is 10k-100k think can anyone tell me why I’m not snap hero’s yet or what is the average snap score you have to have with a friend to be snap hero’s? Add me on snap and tell me please kira_werido

  6. It says shy guys charm for me and a friend who have spoke and snapped a lot why does it say we haven’t snapped at all?

  7. Is it possible to get an in touch charm with a snap friend that I’ve sent chats to but has never sent chats or snaps to me?

  8. I’ve been trying to take over some of the charms in my group chat since I have none. I have the most saved chats, why am I not the group journalist?

  9. I’ve got another charm that (I think) it’s not in that list. It’s called cosmos sign. You can get it if you and _____ has the same zodiac sign
