This article is for SNAPPLIFY NEWBIES. ✨

When setting up your Snapplify account, you’ll need to pick a username and password, which you will then use to log in.

Use these tips to create a practical, easy-to-remember username:

  • Your username should be between 6 and 30 characters long.
  • Your username can include your actual name, or it can be an alias.
  • Your username can include a combination of letters and numbers.
  • You can use capital letters as well as lowercase letters.
  • You cannot use any spaces in your username.
  • Your username cannot include any symbols, punctuation or special characters, such as an underscore (_), an apostrophe ('), a hyphen (-), an ampersand (&), an equals sign (=), a plus sign (+), a comma (,), brackets (<,>, or [,], or (,)), or a full stop (.).

Setting up a strong password helps to keep your account secure. 

🔐 Passwords can be any combination of letters, numbers, and symbols.

🔐 Passwords should be at least 8 characters long.

🔐Passwords should be easy for you to remember but not easy for someone else to guess. Avoid including personal information, or common words or number patterns in your password.

🔐Keep your password secure and never share your password with anyone else.

❗🔞 It is best practice for minors not to include their birth year in their usernames as this makes it easy for others to identify their age.
