Gfycat, a GIF database owned by Snap Inc. — the same company that owns Snapchat — is shutting down.

A notice on the website shows that Snap plans to shut down Gyfcat and all user content in the coming weeks. A notice at the top of the website states that “The Gyfcat service is being discontinued.”



“Please save or delete your Gfycat content by visiting and logging in to your account. After September 1, 2023, all Gfycat content and data will be deleted from,” the notice further reads.

Apparently, Gfycat’s demise is not a big surprise, especially to those who’ve been using the platform in the past few months. It’s said that, back in May, Snap let Gyfcat’s security certificates expire, which made the website inaccessible to a lot of users.

There are also reports on Reddit claiming saying that some users are experiencing broken uploads and an unresponsive support team for months, and even years.
