If you have accidentally or knowingly deleted your old Snapchat and think you have no way to get it back. Think again! Luckily, the company has an easy process for recovering your account. This guide will show you how to get your old Snapchat back within a few minutes. Start by reading our step-by-step instructions below:
Step-by-Step Guide to getting the old Snapchat account back?
To recover your old Snapchat account, you will need to follow these steps:
Step 1: Open Snapchat
To start your Snapchat journey, you’ll need to open the app on your device. You can do this by tapping the icon on your home screen or in the app drawer.
Step 2: Select whether you want to recover your account via phone or email.
To recover your account via phone, enter the mobile number associated with your account. If you registered with a different email address, select “I don’t have this option available yet.”
Step 3: Through Mobile Number
You will receive an OTP (one-time passcode) to the mobile number associated with your account to confirm that it is yours. If you selected “I don’t have this option available yet” above, then follow the instructions for recovering via email below:
Step 4: Through E-mail
When prompted for recovery information, enter your full name (including middle initial), last name, and date of birth in the spaces provided on the form and click “Continue.” Check your email for an email from Snapchat within two business days when they will ask if you’d like them to send an OTP via SMS or email.
Step 5 Selecting “via Email,” a new browser tab will pop up.
To reset your password, follow these steps:
Select “via Email.”
Step 6: Enter your email address
Next, enter your email address in the spaces provided. This is the same as your username and will be used to verify that you are who you say you are. If you don’t remember the email address associated with your account, go to Settings > Basic and click on “Reset My Username.” After clicking this button, you will have 30 minutes to create a new username. If none of this helps you get back into your old account, contact Snapchat’s customer service team on Twitter @snapchatsupport.
Step 7: Check your email for an email from Snapchat.
Check your email inbox if you’ve already tried to get your account back and haven’t heard anything. If you don’t see an email from Snap Inc., try checking the spam folder and promotions tab in your Gmail or Yahoo! mail accounts. If you still can’t find it, try looking through the junk folder of your email provider.
You’ll be sent an email with instructions on regaining access to your account. The email will contain a link where you can confirm ownership of that account by verifying it through either Facebook or phone number verification (or both). As soon as this has been completed, your old Snapchat account should become available again!
Suppose there is a problem with the account recovery process (hacking into someone else’s Snapchat account is one example). In that case, it’s best to contact [email protected] directly, so they can ensure there isn’t a technical issue preventing them from helping you restore access to your old account.
Step 8: Click on the link sent and reset your password.
Click on the link sent to your email and phone number. Enter your new password for Snapchat, then click “Next.” Check your email for a verification code, which you can use to verify that your account is yours by entering it into Snapchat. Enter your current password and click on the right arrow button. If you need to change this, enter your new password and click the right arrow button again.
If you select via phone, OTP will be sent to the number you registered your account with. You can only use this method if you have registered a phone number on your account.
You’ll be asked to input the OTP sent to the phone number you registered your account. If you don’t have a phone and didn’t input one when creating your account, you won’t be able to get back in.
If it’s been more than 30 days since you deactivated your old account, you’ll need to create a new account. But if it’s been less than 30 days since you deactivated your old account, follow these steps:
- On your computer, go to https://www.snapchat.com/recover_account and click “I Want To Recover My Account.”
- Enter the email address and password associated with the account you want to recover and click “Continue.”
If you can remember the email address and password associated with your old account, click “Sign In.” If you don’t have access to the email address or phone number associated with that account, you’ll need to create a new Snapchat account.
FAQs on Snapchat
If you don’t receive a notification from Snapchat stating that your account has been deleted, it most likely hasn’t yet. If this is the case, try logging in again and see if it works.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to get an old username back once it has been taken away from you or changed to another user’s profile. You will have to create a new one instead.
Again, there’s no way for us at the moment, so make sure not too many people saw the photos before you removed them because they may still be able to find them online!
Yes, you can get your old Snapchat back. The process is easy; you must verify your account with an email address or phone number. Once you’ve done that, you will need to reset your password and create a new username on the app.
There are several options for restoring your account without knowing its email or phone number. If you know someone who had access to your account at some point, you can recover it using their username or password. If you want to try this method, we recommend having them send you a message via Snapchat saying they’re willing to help.
We hope this guide has helped you get your account back. Remember, keeping your Snapchat information safe and secure is always best. Do not share your password with anyone else, as that could get your account hacked or stolen, which would be very bad!
