How to Change Snapchat Account Password

YouTube player


While Snapchat does it’s part in enabling you to send self-destructing messages, videos and images, you still have to do your part to keep your account safe and keep people out of your account. The easiest thing you can do to keep your Snapchat account secure is to change your password on a regular basis. While changing your Snapchat password is relatively easy, you’ll want to keep in mind the Snapchat password requirements, which are that your Snapchat password must be eight characters in length, and include at least one capital letter and number. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.
