How Can I Make My Lens Permanent???

  • I believe those permanent lenses are from Team Snapchat. The lenses you create are permanently active but users have to rescan it every 24hours.. i think? im still very new to this.

  • Antonio has it right :)

    We're weary of flooding users with too many Lenses in the carousel. So although there is a 24 hour limit, there is no limit to the number of times the Lens can be unlocked by a user. Anyone can re-scan everyday if they would like to do so.

  • Is there any plan to select specific lenses that you want permanently? Rather than needing to re-scan even lenses you want to use a lot every day?

  • you can go to settings>snapcodes>snaphistory if you don't feel like rescanning it every day. You will still have to do this daily, unfortunately. Also, if you don't update your lens for a year, it will be deleted.

  • I found and love this one lens/filter.When I am in Snapchat, under settings, I do not even see a snapcodes option group or the subgroup snaphistory. I cannot seem to find it anywhere. I use it to make funny videos for my kids and grandchildren. Suddenly, I look it up by name, and it no longer seems to exist. I wanted to make it a permanent lens option, and I cannot. Is there anything that I can do to recover it as a choice?
