What you have to do when your Snapchat verification code won’t come through or sent to your number. You need Snapchat verification code text message to login, but what if the code is never arrived or you never received it.
Snapchat login verification is a security improvement from Snapchat to create a secure login system. Besides a username and password, you must enter a verification code that will be sent via SMS to your mobile phone number you are use to sign up on Snapchat. So these are the two steps authentication to ensure that you are the only one who can log in to your own Snapchat account.
But what happens if the text won’t come through, this could be a problem because You can not login without verification code. Another problem is when you lost your phone with your phone number, you can’t receive the verification code. Well, the code might be sent, but the phone number is lost with your phone, so you can’t read it.
What to do when Snapchat verification code not arrived
The first scenario is that you still have your phone number, you never change your phone number, and the phone is still the same, but the verification is not working, it always fail. What you have to do is request password reset via text message, Enter you phone number that is associated with the submitted username. Snapchat will send a password reset link via text. You only have to submit one request. Once the request is processed you will receive an email.
The worst scenario is when you lost your phone with your phone number, when you try to login with another device with another phone number, you can’t pass through because the verification code is sent to your old number. Well, there is only one way to fix this, contact Snapchat customer support. Trust me, you are not the only one who have this problem,

@yuichi1991 We would recommend creating a new account.

There is nothing wrong with starting new, tell your friends to add you again with the new Snapchat account.
Well, actually if you are still keep the registration code, you can use it to login with your new device after fresh install the Snapchat app. But not many people keeping those kind of registration code, i mean it’s not as important as your social security number.
Actually the Snapchat Codes and Verification are optional, you should turn this option off if you don’t want to lost your account again because of your phone number is lost as well. To be honest, this verification system is stupid, they do not take into account if someone’s number is lost, they just recommend to create another one.
