I've been playing guitar for about a year and my D string keeps snapping, it's snapped 3 times already. It snaps at the bridge and really annoys me. I have a Squier Strat so I don't know why it keeps snapping. Today. it snapped and I haven't even had these strings for more than 3 weeks. It may be because of the higher gauge I put on, I put on .010 this time instead of .009 just for a change. Any help would be appreciated because it's really starting to bug me.

Bring it too as music store and get a setup, they usually cost about $30 plus strings. Also putting on a higher gauge of strings may damage your guitar if you dont adjust the tension but im not sure about that.

It's probably a small sharp piece of something in the bridge that keeps cutting the string, take a very close look at the saddle and see if there's anything stuck there. If there's nothing there then get it set up.

maybe the saddle is a little bit sharp. get a file and round out where the string passes. if that doesnt solve your problem, go to a shop

Exactly.
You can pick up new saddles from a guitar shop. I bought a new one for a few pence.
