It has become very common for people to forget the passwords of their current social accounts or older ones. Luckily, every website has options that you can follow to retrieve your information. Here are some simple steps that will help you recover different social media accounts.
If you don’t remember the password of your Snapchat account, then follow these steps.
Open the Snapchat app on your mobile, or its website. Enter the username or email, then click on ‘Forgot your password?’
Snapchat will then find the account and give you two options to recover your password. You can choose between getting an email or an SMS.
If you choose the email option, Snapchat will send an email with a password reset link. Click on the URL, or copy and paste to any browser, and enter a new password.
If you choose the SMS option, Snapchat will send a verification code to the associated phone number. You will need to enter the code on the app and continue to create a new password.
Unfortunately, there is no way to change the password of a Snapchat account if you don’t have access to the email or phone number that is associated with the account.
If you are having trouble remembering your Instagram password, follow these steps.
Open the Instagram website. If there is a Facebook account associated with it, then you can recover your account by logging on to Facebook. If your Instagram account stands alone, click on ‘forgot password?’ or ‘Get help signing in’.
Instagram will ask you to enter email, username, or the phone number that is connected to that account. After passing the security check, click on ‘Reset Password’
A message will be sent to your email. Click on ‘Reset Password’, and you will be redirected to a page where you can enter a new password.
The process slightly varies when using an app on your mobile, and it becomes much more manageable. There is an added option to send an SMS to the phone number connected to the account after step 2. You can type in the code from the message and reset the password easily.
Unfortunately, you can’t reset your password without the email or phone number connected to it. As a last resort, you can learn how to hack Instagram account to gain access.
You can easily change your password, if you are locked out of your account, by following these simple steps.
Right below the log in fields, there is a ‘Forgot account?’ button. Click on it to get started.
You will be taken to a different page where you will be asked to enter an email or phone number associated with the account.
You will then be directed to another page which will give you a list of recovery options. Among them might be an option to send a link by email or send a code through SMS. Choose whichever is more convenient and rest your password.
Facebook also offers options to get access to your account with security questions, recovery emails, or other ways. The process varies with every account.
