Find out what you have to do if you lost your phone which is verified by Snapchat. You can login on your Snapchat account with different device or phone (iOS or android).
Snapchatters often experienced problem when they lost their phone along with the number which verified by Snapchat. When they want to log in using another device, Snapchat will send the login verification that will be only sent to the verified devices. This only happen if you enable the Login Verification with SMS. After enabling the Login Verification, you will have the option to verify additional devices and/or request a Recovery Code.
Then how to get those verification although you have lost the phone number along with the phone itself?
How to login to Snapchat if you lost your phone number
Snapchat support’s page explain that you can only login with your password on a device you’ve verified with Login Verification. If one of your verified devices gets lost or stolen, you can forget a device you’ve verified to enable login from another device.
- Launch your Snapchat app.
- Make sure you have the Recovery Code that you got when you enable the Login Verification. Use this Recovery Code to log in.
- tap at the top of your Camera screen
- Tap on the Profile screen
- Tap ‘Login Verification’ under the ‘My Account’ section
- Select ‘Forget Devices’
- Select which verified device(s) you’d like Snapchat to forget and then tap ‘Forget Devices’
Please Note: This only work if you have more than one verified device or you have the Recovery Code. If you’d like to use a device you’ve forgotten with Login Verification in the future, you will need to re-verify the device.
To prevent the same thing happens in the future, we recommend you to install an authentication app on your device. By using authentication apps like Google Authenticator or Duo, the apps can generate a verification code even if you lost your phone and phone number. After install the authentication app, launch your Snapchat app, and go to Settings –> Login Verification and enable ‘Authentication App.’
