But how does My Eyes Only work and what exactly is it? This article tells you everything you need to know about it. Let’s start with the basics!

Can Snapchat watch your snaps and videos?

This is an old question. First, the snaps you send in your app can only be viewed by the sender and recipient. In other words, it’s very safe. However, Snapchat employees have heard reports that they can view snaps if left unopened for extended periods of time.

Overall, Snapchat is a relatively safe and secure app that comes with many filters and lenses to make your photos better. However, further security is a good step to prevent prying eyes, which is why My Eyes Only helps.

What is the My Eyes Only feature?

The My Eyes Only feature is an easy way to encrypt a snap with a secure 4-digit password. Once added to this section, these snaps can only be accessed through the password of the Snapchat account itself.

In addition, you can add memorable snaps and stories to this section. You can also add and remove snaps to this feature at any time and as many times as you like. If this sounds interesting, read how to enable this feature and use it as an iPhone photo vault.

Note: If you forget your My Eyes Only password, you will not be able to recover your snaps.
