The issue in GetHuman4848528's own words
A user hacked and logged into my account and changed the email associated with the account. I changed my password about ten minutes later when I saw the email. I then struggled a little and went to sleep. I got a few different texts that said “ Your Snapchat account has been locked to protect your privacy. Please reply*with your *-digit PIN to unlock your account.” whenever I tried to respond to this number the text message wouldn’t deliver. *I woke up this morning with a text from snapchat that said “ Snapchat code: ******. Do not share it or use it elsewhere!”. I began logging back into my Snapchat app and used the code when prompted with a screen asking me to type in the code generated from my authentication app and it said “this is not the right code”. I’m thinking it might have been too long but I don’t know what to do to get logged back into my Snapchat account and fix this!
