How To Unlock A Permanently Locked Snapchat Account:

You can try the following methods to unlock a permanently locked Snapchat account:

1. Contacting Snapchat Support

Even if you are sure that your Snapchat account is secure and safe from being hacked, it can happen. If you are in that situation, contacting the Snapchat customer support team would be better so the procedure will not be complicated or time-consuming.

To unlock a permanently locked Snapchat account:

Step 1: Create Snapchat account with new number

The first thing you need to do is create a new account. That will help you get into Snapchat quickly again. Then, change the username to the one that’s locked.

Step 2: Contact the Snapchat customer support team

Once you have changed your username and set a new password, contact the Snapchat customer support team if nothing works for you.

Try to provide as many details about your account as possible, including usernames, phone numbers, and email addresses, and explain that your account was in the control of others and that you want it to be restored now.

Step 3: Provide proof to verify your identity

The last thing you need is some proof of your identity because Snapchat uses your email address to verify your account.

So try to take a screenshot of the email you used when creating your account and send it to [email protected].


2. Unlock from the Browser

If your Snapchat is locked then you might get an email in your inbox and that is all you need to follow to unblock the Temporarily blocked Snapchat account.

4. Wait for the ‘Lockout to End’

If your Snapchat account is temporarily locked, wait for the locking period to end.

Snapchat may lock your account temporarily if it detects suspicious activity, such as using a third-party app or plugin, sending spam messages, or violating community guidelines.

5. Verify Your Account

Snapchat may ask you to verify your account by providing additional information, such as your email address, phone number, or a verification code.

Follow the prompts to verify your account and see if this method unlocks it.

6. Wait for Snapchat

If none of the above methods work, wait for Snapchat to unlock your account.

Snapchat may permanently lock your account if it detects repeated violations of its community guidelines, such as sharing inappropriate content or harassing other users. If this is the case, you may need to create a new account.
