How to disable wake screen on Snapchat: iPhone and Android

If you are not a fan of Snapchat's wake screen feature, then you should know that disabling it is possible. Let's see how!

What is the wake screen feature?

By default, Snapchat uses a Wake Screen feature that illuminates your smartphone as soon as a notification hits your phone. Unfortunately, this feature can contribute to battery drain, as it leaves your screen illuminated for a few seconds at a time. However, once this feature is disabled, any Snapchat notification will be shown upon manually waking your device's screen. 

How to prevent Snapchat from waking your phone?

Launch the Snapchat for Android / for iPhone app, and go to the Settings menu.  From there, scroll to the Advanced section, and tap Notifications Settings. Next, you will need to uncheck the Wake Screen option. Once this is done, your new settings will take effect immediately.
