Remember, you should never send or share your Snapchat two-factor authentication or 2FA code with anyone. The code is for your eyes only.

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.
