Snapchat is one of the world’s most popular social media apps, and has garnered a loyal customer base of thousands of users since it was made available on mobile tablets and smartphones. To use the app, you will need to create a new account, using a valid email address in order to be able to use the platform’s numerous features. You will also need to create a username and password in order to log in and out of the app, use the program, and customize your account settings. But what happens if you have forgotten your Snapchat password? This article explains the steps you should take if you forgot Snapchat password.
1. How to reset your password There are a number of different steps that a Snapchat user must take if they have forgotten their password. Because they will be unable to log in until they remember their password, or create a new one, Snapchat users will have to request a password reset email. This is straightforward and easy to do. Firstly, open up the Snapchat app on your mobile tablet or smartphone and wait a few seconds for the program to load.
You should be on the main sign-in screen. Here you will see the normal options to enter your username and password. Underneath these there should be an option that reads “Forgot my password“. Click on this and wait for a few seconds for the app to load. You will then need to enter the email address that you used when creating your Snapchat account, and then after a few minutes you will receive instructions via email on what you need to do to request a password reset.
2. Points to remember Remember, that if your account doesn’t have an email address linked up, or you don’t have access to the email address you registered with any more, Snapchat will be unable to reset your password. It is therefore important to try and remember the password if you can. Trying a number of different passwords that you think might be correct may prevent you from accessing the Snapchat app so you will need to make sure that you know the correct one.
3. What happens next? After a few minutes, you should receive a password reset email from Snapchat, so you will need to exit the app on your smartphone or mobile tablet and log into your email account. This can take several minutes in some instances so please be patient. Once you have received the email in your inbox, open it up and click on the embedded link which will take you to a password reset page on the Snapchat website.
Here you will need to enter your email address again and follow the instructions on how to reset your password. To stop this problem from happening again, it’s always best to choose a password that you can remember. You may not want to write your password down for security reasons but you should take the time to memorize the password the best you can so you will be able to remember it every time you want to access the Snapchat app.
