Remember, you should never send or share your Snapchat two-factor authentication or 2FA code with anyone. The code is for your eyes only. If you asked to send your code, it means someone is attempting to hack your account. Therefore, you should not send your code and should delete the message requesting the code.
This is how a Snapchat 2FA text message looks like:

How two-factor authentication works
Two-factor authentication adds a second login step in addition to your Snapchat username and password.
When two-factor authentication is turned on and you log in on a new device, you’ll be asked to enter a Login Code. Snapchat will send you this Login Code in a text message, or you can get it from a special authenticator app on your device. This code should never be shared with anyone.
