    Three days ago, I was signing in and out of different Snapchat accounts on my unrooted Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, then when I tried to sign back in to an account I got the "Oh no! Your log in temporarily failed". I clicked through to the link it gave me and filled in an error report form, I received an automated response telling me I have been unauthorised third party apps. I am completely unaware of this if I am, I am not rooted and my bootloader is not unlocked. In the email they said to wait a day and it would be returned to normal. Nothing happend after that time period. So the following day I performed a factory reset and this had no effect again. I filled in another error report form this morning explaining the situation and I got another automated response telling me to try all the obvious things (ie. uninstalling and reinstalling Snapchat, rebooting device and using the app over the mobile network and the WiFi- all of which failed). I can sign in on other devices. Does anyone have any ideas about how I can resolve this?

    Well, that's Snapchat for you. It's not a very reliable app.

    There's nothing I can do? I've had this app for years and I've never had anything like this?

    It's an issue on their end so their isn't anything you can do.

    Would rooting and flashing a custom rom do anything since its the device not the account?

    Snapchat doesn't work very well if at all with rooted devices.

    Root doesn't matter, it's Xposed they block. Can't say I know what's wrong though op I only got that from trying to log in with Xposed installed.

    Google "old versions" and see if you can install an older version of Snapchat that worked. Uninstall the version that's not working beforehand
