How to Recover My Eyes Only Pictures on Snapchat (iPhone/Android)
How to Recover Your “My Eyes Only” Snapchat Pictures on iPhone
Assuming you have your iPhone backed up, there are a few ways to retrieve your eyes-only snaps from Snapchat.
The first and simplest method is to restore your iPhone from a backup. Once you’ve done this, open the “Settings” app and select “Photos” from the main menu. Find the snap you wish to retrieve and tap on it. On the next screen, select “Restore from Backup.” This will load your backup and allow you to select the photos you wish to retrieve. Once you’ve done this, your snaps will be restored and available for viewing in the “Photos” app.
If you don’t have a backup, or if you’d like to try to retrieve your snaps without restoring your iPhone, you can try to access them through Snapchat’s servers. To do this, you’ll need to sign into your account and search for your username. Once you’ve found it, click on the “Snapshots” tab and select the “View All” button next to your account. This will show you all of your snaps, along with the date and time they were taken.
Finally, if you still can’t find your snaps, or if you want to remove them from your account completely, you can send them to a deleted user account. To do this, open the “Settings” app and select “Snapchat” from the main menu. Next, select “Delete Account.”
Step One: Update Snapchat
If you have recently deleted your Snapchat account, or if your phone is lost or stolen, there is a chance that your eyes only pictures (EPIC selfies) were saved on your phone. To recover these pictures, you will first have to update your Snapchat app.
Step Two Restore Deleted Snapchat Account
If your phone is lost or stolen, you can try to restore your deleted Snapchat account by contacting Snapchat directly. Once you have restored your account, you can then use the backup files that were saved in case of a lost or stolen phone.
Step Two: Log into Snapchat
Step Three: Tap on the three lines in the top right corner
Step Four: Select Settings
Step Five: Under “General”
Step Six: Under “Account”
Step Seven: Tap on “Your account”
Step Eight: Under “Media”
Step Nine: Tap on “Photos and videos”
Step Ten: Under “Photos”
Step Eleven: Tap on “From your phone”
Step Twelve: Tap on “Autosave photos and videos”
Step Thirteen: Under “Photos and videos”
Step Fourteen: Tap on the three lines in the top left corner
Step Fifteen: Select “Export”
Step Sixteen: Select a destination
Step Seventeen: Select a format
Step Eighteen: Tap on “Export”
You will now have a .zip file of all your photos and videos.
Step Three: Access “My Eyes Only”
If you have been using Snapchat to share photos with friends, you may have noticed that after a certain number of photos are shared, the photos will disappear from your friends’ Snaps and Stories. This is because Snapchat sets a timer for each photo, and after a set period of time, the photo will be deleted. If you want to keep your eyes only on photos, you will need to access them before the timer expires.
To access your eyes only photos, follow these instructions:
1. Press and hold on to a photo that you want to keep.
2. When the “Select Photo” menu appears, release the photo.
3. Tap on the “Eyes Only” option in the “Select Photo” menu.
4. The photo will now be saved in your camera roll with the “Eyes Only” option selected.
Step Four: Recover Pictures
Assuming that you deleted the pictures of yourself that were on your Snapchat, there are a few things you can do in order to try and recover them. The first step is to try and find a copy of the photo that you deleted. If you have a copy saved on your phone or on a computer, you can try and recover the picture by looking for a specific file that corresponds to the picture. If you do not have a copy of the picture saved, you can try to find someone who has the picture and ask them to send it to you. Finally, you can try to find the picture on social media and ask people who have shared it if they can send it to you.
Step Five: Prevent Future Loss
- Make sure your phone is backed up regularly.
- Disable features that may auto-save pictures or videos.
- Disable AUTOPILOT in Snapchat if you don’t want it to save your pictures for you.
- Take a break from Snapchat if you aren’t using it daily.
- Erase old pictures and videos if you don’t want them to be recovered by Snapchat.
Snapchat is a great way to keep in touch with friends, but if you accidentally delete a picture or video, it’s not always easy to recover it. Here are some tips on how to recover your eyes only pictures on Snapchat iPhone:
1. First, make sure you have backed up all of your pictures and videos on your phone.
2. Next, try using the search function on Snapchat to find the picture or video you want to recover.
3. If you can’t find the picture or video using the search function, try using the “Find Friends” feature to find friends who have shared the picture or video on Snapchat.
