The title compound, {(C8H20N2)[PbCl4]}n, crystallizes as an layered inorganic–organic hybrid perovskite-type structure. Corner-sharing PbCl6 octa­hedra extend parallel to the ac plane. Adjacent layers are staggered relative to one another, with diammonium cations separating these layers. The cations exhibit symmetry and inter­act with the inorganic sheets via N—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonding in the right-angled halogen sub-type of the terminal halide hydrogen-bonding motif.
