GetHuman-elsawate's Hacked Account issue with Snapchat from January 2020

Help with my Snapchat issue
Top Tip from another customer
If your email and password are changed on the account then there is no way to recover the account. This company has a very strict policy with recovering accounts and if anything is different then you cannot recover the account. You must have the original email or phone number on the account.
The issue in GetHuman-elsawate's own words
The hacker messaged me through my close friends Snapchat, who had also been hacked, and asked for my password so they could check something. I gave it to them thinking it was my friend who I trust. I promptly received an email telling me an unknown Samsung device which I do not recognise had logged in. Then an email saying my password had been changed and finally one saying I had chosen to deactivate my account. *I am wondering if there is any way to recover my Snapchat as the email stated that it would not be permanently deleted for ** days. **Kind Regards,*Elsa Waterfield.

How GetHuman-elsawate fixed the problem
A friend messaged me saying the hacker had reactivated the account and was messaging people again so in the time that my account was live again I used to the ‘forgotten your password’ feature to change my password through my email and I was able to get back in.
