How to Tell if Someone Blocked You On Snapchat

    Snapchat is all fun filters and rewarding streaks between friends until someone’s feelings get hurt. If you’re wondering how to tell if someone blocked you on Snapchat, out of concern that you’ve lost a friend or are on thin ice, we’ve got the instructions to help you out.

    Just a piece of advice, though: if you do find that someone blocked you, move on. It might hurt, and it might be a sign that you and said friend have bigger things to talk about, but it’s not worth getting upset about. Also, as I’ll detail below, there’s a chance that your friend may not have blocked you, but has broken up with Snapchat instead.

    How to tell if someone blocked you on Snapchat

    Before you start, think ahead: you might need a friend with a Snapchat account of their own, or a second Snapchat account, to finish these steps. Yes, you can look for your friend on your own, but only a secondary account can provide the evidence you’re looking for.

    Check your friend’s list to discover How to Tell if Someone Blocked You On Snapchat

    So, you’ve probably already done this, but let’s start at the most logical point. If a friend appears in your list of direct messages (which some call the friends list), they haven’t blocked you yet.

    1. From the Home screen, tap the Messages icon.

    2. Scroll up and down to look.

    Search for their username to discover How to Tell if Someone Blocked You On Snapchat

    If their username (which they may have changed) didn’t show up in your list, the next thing to do is search for their account. If they show up in your results, they haven’t blocked you.

    1. From any screen in the app, tap the Magnifying Glass icon.

    2. Type in their username.

    3. See the lack of results.

    Repeat with someone else’s account

    So, now that you’re down 0-2, let’s see if you can confirm that you’ve been blocked.

    Ask someone else — who this person you’re thinking about so much would not know or block — to perform the above steps. If they find the person, yep, you’ve been blocked. Because you can’t de-list a Snapchat account and thereby make it invisible to all, everyone can be at least found in one of the above steps, provided they haven’t blocked the person.

    If this account doesn’t show up in that person’s search, the most likely answer will probably give you a sense of relief. They’ve likely deleted their account and moved onto Instagram or another app.

    1. Did you send them a message and it gets stuck on “Pending?” You might be blocked.

    2. If you can find them in search, but you’re not friends anymore and can’t add them? You might be blocked.

    3. Is their name greyed out in the friend’s list? You might be blocked.
