How to find out if someone is using my Snapchat account

  The social network has a "one device at a time" policy.  This means that we can only sign in with one account on one device and nothing else.  If the app disconnects you a lot or you get a lot of emails from the social network, it's time to take things seriously.  This is the time when we need to know if someone is using my Snapchat account.

  Social networks contain a lot of information about us, a lot of this information is public while others are completely private and should be kept as such.  Therefore, it is necessary to be very careful with whom we share certain data such as our email, phone number, etc.

  If you suspect that someone could get into your Snapchat account and still do, it's time to take things seriously, and improve the security and privacy of our account, urgently.

  How do you know someone can access my Snapchat account

  There are ways in which we can draw conclusions about this.  These are generally simple cues like viewing account activity, constantly logging out for no apparent reason, receiving more emails about logging in or activity, etc.

  If you are experiencing one or all of these issues, it is very likely that someone has access to your account.  It doesn't have to be information theft, it can also be to spy on your activity.

  Unusual activity on the account

  We must pay close attention to unusual activities.  This could be clips we don't have, friends we don't recognize, or people we follow that we don't know who they are.  These are all signs that someone is using our account.

  The session is closed all the time

  Another sign that someone has logged into our account is that we must be constantly logged into Snapchat.  This could be a sign that someone else is logging in, so the social network forces us to log out of the account.  It is not a completely secure thing, as there may be technical issues so we are not connected.  However, it wouldn't be a bad idea to take precautions.

  Unusual emails

  Obviously, if we receive an email telling us that someone is trying to log in from another site, and they changed your username or password, it's time to take urgent action as this means someone else is using our account.

  How do I protect my Snapchat account

  If we are absolutely sure that someone has entered our Snapchat account, the first thing we need to do is activate two-factor authentication.  This way, even knowing our password, no one will be able to re-enter the account.

  In addition, we will have to take other measures.  We will have to change the password, if possible, use another email that no one knows about.  In the event that we are not able to enter due to a password change, the first thing to do is try to recover it from the “I forgot my password” link.

  The most important thing is to activate two-factor authentication, it does not matter if a person is trying to enter and knows our email and password.  If you do not have physical access to our mobile phone, you will not be able to access our account.
