What can I add to My Eyes Only?

Only snaps can go into the My Eyes Only section.

You can’t add pictures or videos.

However, you can take a snap of a picture and then add it to My Eyes Only.

Snapchat hasn’t yet introduced the function of adding chat pictures to My Eyes Only.

Pictures stay in the chat only.

Users usually put private snaps in My Eyes Only that others aren’t supposed to see.

Can you add a passphrase to My Eyes Only?

Instead of a 4-digit passcode, you can encrypt My Eyes Only with a passphrase.

The passphrase is 16-characters long and must contain at least 1 number and one letter.

Most users don’t use the passphrase unless they store incredibly sensitive snaps on My Eyes Only.

You’ll need to note the passphrase down if you intend to use one.

It’s impossible to remember a 16-character-long passphrase.

If someone steals your device and knows your passphrase, they’ll be able to access your My Eyes Only snaps.

Do My Eyes Only have a limit?

There’s unlimited storage space on the Google App Engine cloud.

You can save as many snaps on My Eyes Only as you want.

What’s more, they’re not stored on your phone directly.

They’re stored in the cloud on Snapchat’s servers.
