How do I setup a Snapchat profile?

Download Snapchat

To create a Snapchat account, you must first download the Snapchat app on your phone! There are both iOS and Play Store apps available, so pick one for your phone. Once it’s done downloading and installing, open the app by tapping on it. There will be an option to create a new account or sign up. Tap on that button.

Create a new account

Now, you must come up with your own username. Choose your username with some thought and caution as it cannot be changed later. There’s no point picking something complicated, but it must be unique meaning it must be different from every other user on the app.

Choosing a password can be a bit difficult because it must be very strong. Aim for at least ten characters, a mix of letters, numbers, capitals, and symbols. Avoid using words.

Enter your email to tie to your account. It must not be in use by another account. This is simply for verification and password recovery options if you ever get locked out.

This next step is optional, but you can also add a phone number to add more security to your account. You will be able to use it for verification purposes once more or enable Two Factor Authentication for your account. It will be extremely difficult for your account to be hacked.

The last few steps will be entirely handled through the Snapchat sign-up process, so follow the instructions and you’ll be all set!

Setup your Snapchat profile

Upon downloading and signing up for a Snapchat account, your profile may look very bland, only showing your username. Tap on your profile icon at the top left of the screen and you’ll be taken to your profile to fill out. You can choose which fields to fill out and if you want them visible!
