How to Keep My Eyes Only on Snapchat – Jugo Mobile Mobile Game News

Snapchat lets you save your favorite snapshots and stories to Memories, an album that keeps them safely stored. And to keep some of those moments more private, you can password protect them using Snapchat’s “For My Eyes Only” feature.

If you are interested in learning how to get My Eyes Only on Snapchat, you have come to the right place. This article will provide a step-by-step guide on how to set it up and discuss some of its key features.

What is just my eyes?

Snapchat introduced the Just My Eyes feature to ensure your privacy is protected. Basically, you can add a password to the Snaps and Stories that you want to keep more private. That way, you are the only person who can see them. This password will be in addition to the one you use to log into your Snapchat account.

It is important to know that you can reset the My Eyes Only password if you forget it, but all previously saved files will be deleted. That’s how Snapchat protects your most private files from intruders who may be trying to bypass this security measure.

Additional FAQs

Why can’t I add images to Just My Eyes?

There are several reasons why this could occur. First, check your internet connection to make sure everything is running smoothly. Second, make sure you have Just My Eyes set up before trying to add your Snaps and Stories. You must first set up a passcode before you can see the option. Third, you must have at least one Snap or Story in Memories or share your content from your phone’s camera.

Can I change the My Eyes Only password?

One of the key features of My Eyes Only is that it is password protected. As mentioned above, if you forgot your password, there is no way to restore your password without consequences (losing access to previously stored Snaps and Stories).

However, you can change your password if you know the current one:

1. Open the Snapchat application.

2. Go to Memories and swipe left to access For My Eyes Only.

3. Touch “Options”.

4. Touch “Change password”.

5. Enter the password you want to change.

6. Enter the new password. Choose between entering a four-digit passcode or a passphrase that includes numbers and letters.

7. Touch «Next».

8. Information about this option will appear on the screen. Tap the circle if you agree.

9. Tap “Continue”.

10. Touch “Finish”.

It is important to know that if you change the password by following the steps above, you will not lose anything that you have saved in the My Eyes Only folder.

The circumstances are different if you do not know your current password. Since the goal is to protect your privacy and prevent someone else from accessing your files, the Snapchat support team cannot access files on My Eyes Only. You can reset your password if you forgot it, but everything you have stored in the My Eyes Only folder will be deleted.

Here are the steps to take if you forgot your password and want to reset it:

1. Open the Snapchat application.

2. Go to Memories and swipe left to access For My Eyes Only.

3. Touch “Options”.

4. Touch “I forgot my password.”

5. Enter the password for your Snapchat account.

6. Touch «Next».

7. Read the information on the screen and tap the circle if you agree.

8. Tap “Continue”.

9. Create a new password. Remember, it must be different from the one you are using for your account.

You will now regain access to My Eyes Only, but the folder will be empty. Since there is no way to restore snapshots and stories that you have previously saved, you can only add new ones.

Snapchat protects your privacy

My Eyes Only is a great option to use to make sure your most important Snaps and Stories stay away from prying eyes. You can set it up in just a few steps and keep your most valuable files protected with a special password that you create.
