Set up the two-factor authentication from:

  • Go to settings
  • Choose Two-Factor Authentication
  • Choose SMS or Authentication App
  • Snapchat can send you Login Codes in SMS text messages to the mobile number that's linked to your Snapchat account
  • A recovery code is a backup way to access you account in case you can't get your Login Code from a text message or your authenticator app

Make sure to edit these privacy settings in Snapchat so that you can always be safe while sharing pictures:

  • Choose "My Friends" on Who can contact you to allow only your friends to contact you directly with Snaps, Chats, Calls, etc
  • Choose "My Friends" on who can view your story to allow only your friends to view your story
  • Turn "Ghost Mode" on to disable sharing your current location
  • Disable "let others find me using my mobile number"
  • Disable "Auto-Save My Story Snaps

  • Use strong and unrepeated password
  • Avoid sharing your username and Snapcode
  • Use the report function within Snapchat to flag spam messages, or accounts that have been hacked
  • Always make sure the sender is really the sender. Otherwise, don't click any link, and don't send any information requested. It can be very dangerous
