How to Reset Your Snapchat Password
In this article, we’ll go through how to change your Snapchat password by email or SMS. Snapchat has a password reset option right on the sign-in screen, making it simple for you to restore your account.
How to Reset Snapchat Password
Open the Snapchat app on your device, select LOG IN, and enter your Snapchat username or email address in the first field.
Select Forgot your password? beneath the username and password. You must enter your username or email address in the first field. Otherwise, Snapchat cannot associate the lost password request with your account.

Snapchat Password Reset by Phone
Follow these instructions to reset your Snapchat password by phone call or text message.

You can only choose the phone option if your Snapchat account is associated with that phone number and you have access to that particular mobile device.
Select Send via SMS to receive a verification code via text message.
Select Call me instead to receive a verification code by phone call. Have a pen and paper on hand so you can jot down the code quickly.

Select Change Password when you’re done.

Select via Email and you’ll be asked to enter your email address in the field on the next tab, then select Submit.
