We have witnessed a lot of new features being added to the Snapchat app since its launch but not all are liked by the users. One such feature that many people didn’t like and want to delete is the My AI. So if you are also the person who wants to get rid of My AI on Snapchat, this article is going to be very helpful for you.
Snapchat is one of the most famous instant message apps, specially among the young ones.
They love to share their snaps with their friends and enjoy interesting features that the developers add to the app frequently.
The Snapchat Planets is one of my favorite features that I liked the most. It helps arrange my friends automatically based on my interaction with them.
Of course, the friend who I chat with the most or send snaps the most will be named Mercury who appears very close to me so that I can quickly start a chat whenever I want.
While many features receive positive responses from the users, a few features are not liked by them.
In fact, we are not bound to like every new feature that the developers add.
Without any further delay let’s get to see how to get rid of My AI on Snapchat.
How to Get Rid of My AI on Snapchat
AI is being adopted in various fields very fast, specially after the launch of ChatGPT back in November 2022.
AI has existed for a long but hasn’t been used as commonly as it is today.
For Apple’s SIRI, they have introduced SIRI long back which works on artificial intelligence.
Today, AI is being integrated with many platforms to automate the task and Snapchat is no exception.
My AI on Snapchat could be an interesting feature for some people, but for many others, it is a headache as it pops up while you are chatting with your friends or sharing snaps.
Though, My AI on Snapchat can assist you in finding information about a particular topic that you are discussing with your friend in chat or entertain you when none of your friends is online, it can sometimes commit a blunder. One such blunder was seen when it posted to its own Snapchat story.
My AI can be very annoying sometimes and you just wish to delete this instantly.
Even after a kind of negative response, the developers seem to be not interested in removing it from the app.
In fact, I have seen them emphasizing this feature as I could see sponsored links- one of the ways to further monetize the app.
Here is how to delete My AI on Snapchat if you have already decided.
(Note: You must be a Snapchat+ subscriber if you want to get rid of My AI on Snapchat or Unpin it. If you are a normal user, you can’t delete it)
Step 1- Launch the Snapchat app, and tap the Profile (Bitmoji) icon from the top left-hand corner.
Step 2- Click Settings, it is the gear icon.
Step 3- Go to “Privacy controls” and then to “Clear data“
Step 4- Go to “Clear conversations” and then tap the “X” icon next to “My AI”
It will remove My AI from the chat feed.
How to unpin My AI on Snapchat
If you do not want to remove My AI on Snapchat and just unpin it from chat feeds so that it doesn’t appear at the top, here are the steps you can follow.
The process is somewhat similar to unpin someone on Snapchat.
Again, this feature is available for the Snapchat+ subscribers only.
1- Launch the Snapchat app.
2- Click the Profile Icon (bitmoji) from the top left corner of the app. It will open your Snapchat profile.
3- From the Profile, tap the “Snapchat+” banner.
4- Then with a slider button, toggle off My AI. After you toggle off My AI, you will see it “unpinned“
If you want a more convenient method to unpin My AI or an alternative to the above, you can do it from the Chat settings. Here is how.
- Launch Snapchat
- Tap the chat icon from the bottom to pull up the chat list.
- Long-press My AI and it will open the settings
- From the options appeared on the screen, select “Chat Settings”
- Then select “Unpin Conversations“
How to Stop My AI from Viewing Your Story
This is the most overlooked feature that benefits Snapchat but not you.
Yes, My AI is allowed access to your story so that you can be provided with tailored recommendations.
As My AI can see your story and location, it can suggest recommendations from surrounding areas, such as a coffee cafe, restaurant, or bar around you.
Learn more about Snapchat My AI and contact their support if you have any concerns about your privacy.
By default, the setting is done to view your story, location, and other data. However, you can prevent My AI from doing so.
Here are the steps.
- Launch the Snapchat app
- Click the Chat icon from the bottom menu. It will open the chat list.
- Tap “My AI” and it will open a chat window with My AI.
- Tap “My AI” and it will open the profile page.
- Click three vertical dots at the top-right corner of the profile page.
- From the bottom slider sheet, select “Privacy Settings“
- Toggle off “My AI” from “My AI can view…“
It will now stop My AI from entering into your privacy and track your conversation and location.
How to add My AI back on Snapchat
If, for any reason you want to add My AI back on Snapchat, these are the steps.
However, if you want to pin back the “My AI“, you can do that as well by going to Profile> Snapchat+ banner > Toggle on My AI.
- Start the Snapchat App.
- Tap the Search icon at the top-left corner which is adjacent to the profile icon.
- Search for “My AI” and tap it to open the conversation.
- Send a random message to My AI to add it back on Snapchat.

My AI is an interesting feature but not for everyone. Infact, this feature received resistance from the users as they found it not so useful.
Snapchat has forced users to use My AI as there is no way to remove it unless you are a Snapchat+ subscriber.
The Snapchat+ subscribers can get rid of My AI from the settings and even unpin it but the normal user will have to live with it.
