Every day, new social media apps ideas are being created by developers because we live in an age where we chat with family and friends easily. Social media apps come with their own unique features and we can see that on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, Snapchat and the list goes on. Like me, I have accounts on these platforms and I use them for different purposes, and I know you have on at least two mentioned. For this reason, we spend time on these platforms, interacting with friends and uploading funny videos, memes, and chatting.
According to Statista, it has been estimated that at least 2 Billion people make use of social media and that in 2021, the number will increase to 3.09 Billion active users. This shows how important social media is to people. In Addition, 70% use these social media on their smartphones to handle all these platforms, that is why you progressive social media platforms all have Apps for phones. The remaining 30% uses computers to access their accounts, by doing this, it makes chatting faster, loading of photos and accessibilities handy.
These are not the only reason they refuse to use their smartphones, sometimes it is not intentional, their smartphone battery might be dead and needs some time to charge, while others might have lost their device and need to stay in touch with friends and what’s the latest happening in the world. So this is where you need an alternative since most popular platforms don’t have an official app for computers.
One alternative is to use applications of these platforms from their smartphones on their PC. Don’t worry, it is not stressful and I am discussing this method which you’ll use for Snapchat Login on a PC/Laptop.
Why Use Snapchat?
In brief, Snapchat is a social media app that allows users to add pictures called “Snaps” on their account for other users to view. Just like Facebook & Whatsapp Status, this Snaps automatically deletes themselves after 24 hours have passed. Although you can delete them anytime you want manually if you uploaded an image mistakenly.
That’s not all, Snapchat has various image customizations such as filters which beautifies your Snaps before uploading for others to see. Snapchat is widely used by teenagers because of its’ features relative to face recognition which adds an accurate face filter for a perfectly captured Snap.
The app was developed by Evan Thomas Spiegel and born in Los Angeles, California, U.S. America on June 4, 1990. He’s now a 27-year-old internet entrepreneur. It also supports over 20 languages which makes it easy for people around the world to enjoy the application in their own dialect since the translation is very accurate.
Android and iOS users can make use of this social platform, while another OS has not to be launched such as Windows/MAC. Thus, you need to make use of an app player on your PC to run Snapchat on it, which has been discussed in this article.
Speaking of security, when you lost your password, you can easily use the ‘Forgot Password’ option on the app, here you will be asked to enter the registered email account – without this, you need to contact support. Once you have the email, input it and then you will receive a new link through it which you need to click to set up a new password for your registered email id.
If you forget your password, you can use the ‘Forgot Password‘ option where you will be asked to enter the registered email id and you will receive a link from where you can set a new password. Thus, only the person who has access to the registered email id can change the password.
Remember when I mentioned we will make use of App Player, well here we are going to know what it is and how we can make use of it.
What is an App Player?
This is a software that allows users to run applications from various operating systems like Android on it for Free.
