The social network has a “One device at a time” policy. This means we can only sign in to one account with one account on one device and nothing else. If the app logs you out a lot or you get too many emails from the social network, it’s time to take things seriously. This is when it takes to know Yes somebody uses me account of Snapchat.
Social networks have a lot of information about us, much of this information is public while some is completely private and should stay that way. Therefore, it is essential that we are very careful with whom we share certain data such as our email, phone number, etc.
If you think someone has been able to access your Snapchat account and still does, it’s time to take things seriously, improve the security and privacy of our account, urgently.
There are ways to draw conclusions about this. These are usually simple clues like viewing account activity, continuously logging out for no apparent reason, receiving more emails about login or activity, etc.
If you are having any or all of these issues, it is quite possible that someone has access to your account. It doesn’t have to be about stealing information, it can also be about spying on your activity.
Unusual activity on the account
We must pay special attention to unusual activities. It would be having clichés that are not ours, friends that we don’t recognize or people that we follow and of whom we have no idea who they are. These are all signs that someone is using our account.
The session is closed all the time
Another sign that someone is entering our account is that we constantly have to log into Snapchat. It can be a sign that someone else is connecting, so the social network forces us to leave the account. This is not something completely safe, as there may be technical issues and therefore we are disconnected. However, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to take precautions.
Obviously if we get an email where they tell us someone is trying to enter from another location, change username or password, it’s time to take urgent action as it means someone else is using our account.
If we’re completely sure that someone is entering our Snapchat account, the first thing we’ll need to do is turn on 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. In the event that we cannot enter because the password has been changed, the first thing to do is to try to recover it from the “I forgot my password” link.
The most important thing is to enable two-factor authentication no matter if a person tries 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.
