How to recover a Snapchat account

Sometimes it may happen that when you try to log into your Snapchat account, you cannot do so due to the incorrect entry of the access data. A simple mistake when entering the password, having forgotten your email address or your username can make you no longer able to access your account, thus losing contact with the friends you have added there.

The good news is that Snapchat allows you to recover your account if you have forgotten your password, your email, your username or if you have recently deleted it. In Snapchat they are aware that losing access data is quite normal, that is why they give the possibility of recovering access through the email or phone number registered in the account. Here at InfoCuentas we will guide you step by step through the process, so that you can enjoy your Snapchat account again without problems.

Recover Snapchat account from the web

The first option that we will show you to recover your Snapchat account is through the official Snapchat website. You can perform these steps both from the PC and from a mobile device through the web browser. It is the most practical method since it does not require entering the application, however, later we will show you how to do it from it as well.

    After a few minutes, your Snapchat account that had been deleted in the past will be active again and you can log into it without any problem. According toSnapchat support page, you can only reactivate your account by logging in with your username and sometimes it could take up to 24 hours to be reactivated.

    Remember that you will only have the opportunity to reverse the suspension of your account by carrying out the process of recovering it in the following 30 days since once this period of time has elapsed, Snapchat will proceed to permanently delete it without any possibility of recovering it.
