Troubleshooting Galaxy A10 with ‘Snapchat keeps stopping’ error

App issues aren’t really that serious, most especially if the app in question is a third party. If Snapchat keeps stopping on your Galaxy A10, you should be able to get rid of the error and make the app work again just by doing some basic troubleshooting procedures. With that said, here’s what you need to do: 

First solution: Force restart your phone

When troubleshooting software-related issues, it’s best to start the entire process with a forced restart. It’s a simulated battery removal that will refresh your phone’s memory as well as reload all its applications and services.

  1. Press and hold the Volume Down button and don’t release it yet. 
  2. While holding down the volume button, press and hold the Power key as well. 
  3. Keep both keys held down together for 15 seconds or until the Galaxy A10 logo shows on the screen.

Once your phone has successfully rebooted, launch the app and see if the ‘Snapchat keeps stopping’ error still shows up.
