I deleted my Snapchat and it says it’s been deactivating for 3 hrs now when I tried to log back in get some of my pictures. So therefore I don’t have a Snapchat nomore or it’s just having issues. It’s telling me wait for an email to say my account has been successfully deactivated but it’s been saying that for 3 hrs. What’s going on cause I really need my pictures and videos.
