When you have two-factor authentication (2FA) turned on and you log in to Snapchat for the first time from a new device, you’ll be asked to enter a Login Code. If you can’t access your Login Code via an authenticator app or SMS, you will not be able to log in to your account unless you have created a separate Recovery Code in advance.
A Recovery Code backs up your ability to log in to Snapchat so that you can still log in even if you lose your device, change your phone number, or restore your phone to its original factory settings.
Once you’ve created a Recovery Code, keep it in a safe place. Use an encrypted wallet like LastPass, or print the code and store it securely. Emailing it to yourself is not recommended, since the code (and access to your account) will be at risk if your email is compromised.
⚠️Please note: We do not offer support for lost Recovery Codes.
