If you can’t use your favorite apps, there is always the manual method of solving problems. For those who are more familiar with WhatsApp and Instagram’s server issues that make using them less than ideal.
Here we’ll show how to unlock Snapchat accounts when they get locked out by updating their app on Android or iOS devices.
Why do Snapchat accounts get locked in the first place?
If you post something that breaks the rules of Snapchat, your account might get banned. For example: posting abusive or graphic content in a public story can lead to being kicked out by Apple and Facebook so don’t do it unless it’s just fun (and maybe save this picture).
Snapchat has the power to lock your account if you’re reported for any reason. Avoid sending weird memes or unfavorable images and maybe they’ll stop dinging against your username. But sometimes it’s hard not knowing why we get targeted in this way, what should I do?
Here’s how to get your Snapchat account unlocked
Logging out of your Snapchat account will fix the problem if you’re having trouble maintaining Snap Streaks with someone. It’s worth a shot to make sure you have the latest version of Snapchat installed on your phone. If that doesn’t work, clear out its cache and log back in again. You could also try updating or downloading another application from an app store like Google Play Store if yours isn’t working properly either way.
Snapchat has come up with an interesting way to keep its app safe. The company will occasionally lock accounts that are no longer in use, which means you’ll have to go through their official website if your account was ever compromised by hackers or viruses on another device and had been hacked again while not backed up recently enough before getting suspended this time around.
How to contact Snapchat to unlock your account
The Snapchat development team is always on top of things and has created an unlocking tool just in case you get locked out. “If you received a message saying your Snapchat account has been temporarily locked, you can try logging back in via the app or on the web by going here, and selecting ‘Unlock.’ Be sure to take a look at some of the common reasons your account may have been locked below before logging back in again, otherwise it may become permanently locked,” writes the Snapchat development team.
“If you attempt to unlock Snapchat account and see a message stating that it has been permanently locked,” they continue, “our Snapchat support team will not be able to unlock it for you.”
