  2. Swipe up
  3. Tap on the “My eyes only”
  4. Tap on “Options”

Look for the camera icon below the shutter button just right there on the screen.

2. Swipe up

While still on the selfie camera section on your Snapchat app, swipe up.

Once you have swiped up, you will see several options including: “Camera roll, Snaps, and more” Ignore them because that’s not our focus today.

While on there, click on the “My eyes only” tab to open a new page that looks something like this:

After that, proceed to the next step…

3. Tap on “Options”

Now that you are on the “My eyes only” tab. Tap on “Options” just on the bottom right corner of your screen.

This will open up a pop up message that says something similar to:

“Change passcode, Forget passcode…”

Click on “Change passcode” and proceed

4. Change password

After you have clicked on “Change passcode”, you will asked to input your old password, then your new password twice.

And that is how to change your my eyes only password on Snapchat.

Can you get into my eyes only on snapchat without a password?

How to recover my eyes only pictures on snapchat on Android?

You can recover my eyes only pictures on snapchat using two simple methods:

First method is going into your Snapchat app and clicking on your profile icon in the upper left-hand corner of your screen.
Then, click on the “settings” icon in the upper right-hand corner.

Then, under the “Privacy” tab, you’ll see “My Data”. Tap on that and proceed to download it.

Note: you will be asked to re-enter your main snapchat account password to be able to have your data sent to you.

The second method can only work on an android device. All you need to do is go to android File manager.

Navigate to “Internal storage” and find the “Android folder. Tap on that and then proceed to find “files” Tap on that.

Now, find files that have a .nomedia extension on them.

Now, delete that extension and they will be restored to your Snapchat account.

This second method only works for a period of time, so be fast to save as much pictures as you can to your camera roll.

And, yes you can repeat the process as many times as needed but there’s no guarantee that it would work all the time.

How to put videos in my eyes only

It is important to note you can only save one video at a time to my eyes only and that video must be less than 10 seconds long.

To put your video on my eyes only on snapchat, simply swipe up while still on the camera section of the Snapchat app.

Navigate to the camera roll tab, find the video you want to hide, press and hold to select.

Once selected, you will see some icon and texts like: “edit” on the left hand bottom corner of your screen.

Click on the “Hide” icon and a pop up message like:

Just tap on “move” and you will then again be asked if you want to delete the original video.

This means that Snapchat will save a copy of your video on ‘My eyes only, so even if you delete the original and no one will ever see the video on your phone gallery.

However, anyone with a password to your ‘My eyes only’ on Snapchat will be able to access it.

Once you can then decide on which option you want, click on it and your video will be moved to the my eyes only secured folder right there on your Snapchat app.


Sometimes keeping some personal files on your phone gallery can be a nightmare. But, thanks to Snapchat for inventing ‘My eyes only’, where you can keep your personal files.
