How to Change Passcode for My Eyes Only on Snapchat

Snapchat’s My Eyes Only feature allows you to hide your private photos and videos behind a passcode.

If someone else discovers your My Eyes Only passcode, you may want to change it to keep your content secure. Thankfully, Snapchat gives you an easy way to pick a new passcode.

Keep in mind that you need to already know your current My Eyes Only passcode to change it.
