Mobile Device Identifiers
Your mobile operating system may let you opt out of having certain device identifiers used for interest-based advertising. You should refer to the instructions provided by your mobile device’s manufacturer; this information is typically available under the “settings” function of your mobile device.
And, of course, if your mobile device offers an uninstall process, you can always stop us from collecting information through the app by uninstalling the Snapchat app.
