The first thing you should do to fix the Snapchat support code c14a error is to restart the app. It might seem like the most basic thing, but it could save a lot of your time and effort.

Remove some unnecessary apps running in the background and then restart the Snapchat app. Hopefully, you are now able to run the Snapchat app on your device without any issues.

4. Check if Snapchat Is Down
Just like any other social media platform or website, Snapchat goes down for a short period due to any server-related problem, and chances are you might be getting this Snapchat support code c14a error because of the same reason.
To check the server status of Snapchat, all you have to do is visit this Downdetector page on Snapchat, and you’ll get to know everything about the server status. If you see a message like “User reports indicate no current problems at Snapchat,” it means everything is fine.
If you see a message like “Some users have reported issues with Snapchat” like, it means Snapchat is going through server downtime, and you’ll have to wait a couple of minutes (or hours) until their team fixes the issue.
5. Check Your Internet Connection
If you have a weak or unstable internet connection, you’ll have some issues using Snapchat because the app requires a good connection to load some heavy content. You must check If everything is perfect with your internet connection to fix the Snapchat error.
To check the speed of your internet connection, you have to:
- Visit “Speedtest.net” in any web browser or download their app on your device.
- Next, tap on “Go” to start the test.
- Wait for a minute or so for the results to load.
- Now, check the results with your internet bandwidth.
If the results seem to be fine, you have to look somewhere else to fix the problem. If there is a problem with your internet connection, you must contact your ISP and let them know about the problem. They’ll help you sort out the problem.
6. Disable VPN On Your Device
Having a Virtual Private Network (VPN) on your mobile device is quite helpful as you can browse some blocked websites in your region however, it could cause some major issues like the one you are facing right now. Some apps don’t run properly on your device If you have turned on the VPN.
What you need to do now is turn off the VPN and then try using the Snapchat app. If the issue is related to having a VPN, you will not see the error again, and you can use the Snapchat app without any complications. If the issue is still there, it might not be because of the VPN, and you have to find another way to solve this problem.
7. Check Your Email or Phone Number
