- Enable Memories: Snapchat’s Memories feature allows users to save their snaps and stories to Snapchat’s servers, which can then be accessed and downloaded to their camera roll. To enable Memories, go to Settings > Memories > Save To and select “Memories & Camera Roll”.

- Respect privacy: If you do save a snap or story to your camera roll, be sure to respect the privacy of the sender. Don’t share or distribute the content without their permission.
