Top Tip from another customer
If you're having issues with a password, try resetting it using your email address (be sure to use the correct spelling). Click "Forgot Password" under the login, then follow the prompt. You should have the option to reset with your phone number.
The issue in GetHuman3796837's own words
My Snapchat account was locked for reasons not explained to me. I had been using the app roughly ** minutes before reopening it and being taken to the login screen so after a failed attempt to log in and a message saying “Oh no! Your account has been temporarily locked” I changed my password and the message continued to appear. I contacted Snapchat Support and was sent an email that said my account was temporarily locked because they “ detected” my “account used an unauthorized third-party application”. It then gave a list of potential “ apps such as Snap Upload, Casper, Snap Crack, Phantom, Quick Upload” but I don’t have any of these apps downloaded.

GetHuman3796837 did not yet indicate what Snapchat should do to make this right.

How GetHuman3796837 fixed the problem
My Snapchat got unlocked after less than ** hours. But snapchat was no help in explaining why it was locked in the first place. In addition, I lost my streaks even though it had been less than ** hours since a Snapchat from both people were sent. (It didn’t even show the hourglass icon for the other person). I contacted Snapchat about the problem with my streak and they told me they were unable to help me.
