As a streak begins after three days, the smallest number you will ever see next to the flame emoji is the number 3.

The flame emoji will disappear if the streak is broken. Before it disappears, an hourglass emoji appears to encourage the participants to keep it going.

If the streak is kept up for 100 days, a hundred emoji will appear.

A streak is considered very important for many Snapchat users. It signifies a strong bond of friendship and commitment. Some users go to extreme lengths to protect their streaks. For example:
  • Emailing Snapchat to restore streaks claiming a loss of internet.
  • Asking a friend to log into their account whilst they're on holiday.
  • Texting or calling friends to remind them to keep the streak alive.
