How To Unlock Your Snapchat Account

Ask a question

Snapchat occasionally goes through its user base and locks any accounts suspected of violating the rules. This typically happens in waves, with everybody is getting their account temporarily locked at the same time. This article will teach you how to get your Snapchat account back if it’s been locked.

Unlock Snapchat Account

Log in to Snapchat with your username and password. If you do not remember your password, click on the Forgot your password? link.


Next, click the yellow unlock button.


Be prepared to wait for a couple hours. If all goes well, Snapchat will have your account back in time, without any effect on your streaks. If you try to log in before Snapchat is ready, you will receive an “Error To Unlock” message.
