Besides Facebook messenger, WhatsApp, and Skype, you might have heard about Snapchat or use it occasionally. So what is Snapchat as an alternative when it fitly sounds like a blend word of snapshot + chat? Snapchat is a mobile app for Android and iOS devices. Same as messenger and WhatsApp, it’s designed for you to talk with friends. Other than that, you can also view live stories around the world, explore more fun with the “Snap moment” if offered.

Part 1. How to Know if Someone Blocked You on Snapchat?

What makes it stand out among the mainstream messaging Apps? How does it get more and more popular with tons of heavy users who are mostly teenagers and young people? Snapchat is well received for some reasons. The core concept of the App is unique and pretty interesting, that is, any picture or video, or message you send is only available to the receiver for a brief moment before it becomes inaccessible. That’s how it echoes its name. The temporary and ephemeral nature of messaging has successfully encouraged a more innovative and natural way of how we interact with each other. Snapchat focuses on private, person to person photo sharing with a lot of features like creating caricature-like Bitmoji avatars, sharing a chronological “story” for broadcasting to followers, and “Discovery” area integrated to major publishers like Buzzfeed that can showcase short-form content. In a word, its instant communication through a mobile device is the key thing that makes it stand out from the crowd.

There’ll be occasions that you get blocked when there is tension. And just like the other social and communication app, Snapchat can be a perfect platform for you to share the fun and photos with friends, to run into people you haven’t seen in a long time. While Snapchat sometimes can be the best reunion party, it can be like a battlefield. There are conflicts and arguments, and you might get blocked occasionally. If you ever wondered or hoped to figure out how this happened, especially when you never know it in the first place or get a notification about being blocked, this guide is here to help.

Generally speaking, the most obvious sign is that you’re no longer able to see their stories or snaps, and you can't send them snaps or chats when someone blocks you on Snapchat. Sometimes your phone will notify the latest update from the contact, and if you stop getting notification then you might have been blocked. This happens with the contact who frequently uses the app or chats with you via the app. But sometimes to figure out if someone’s blocked you on Snapchat can be a detective job, here are various steps to help you to find it out thoroughly.


  • 1. Open the Snapchat app and log in. Swipe from left to right across the screen to get to your friends list. Check your friend list, and see if anyone has disappeared.
  • 2. If someone you were friends with disappeared from the friends list, that’s the sign you might have been blocked. But that’s not for sure, you might have to dig up a bit more to confirm your suspicion.
  • 3. Tap the search icon (the magnifying glass) on top of the app, and search for their username. There’s no chance they will appear here if you have been blocked. However, there might be a case that they could have deleted their account.
  • 4. Finally, if you want to make sure if you have been blocked by this certain friend. You can ask a friend to search for the username or you can do it yourself by creating a new account. Unless your friend or this new account you’ve just created have both been blocked, otherwise you’ll find out they still have a Snapchat profile but simply just block you. 🙁

Part 2: What Happens When Someone Blocks You on Snapchat?

There are countless reasons that you get blocked, but more or less, it suggests a friendship is in trouble. So what happens when you get blocked? First of all, you won’t get any notification from Snapchat for the blocking. You won’t show up on their friends list anymore and your name will no longer appear in that person’s friends list. In terms of Snapchat interaction, you won’t be able to look at their story or Group Charms, and you cannot send them Snaps or chats anymore. It’s a bit sad. Assuming that you guys are not friends on another social media, so there’s no way you can contact them. Blocking means the connection is completely cut off.

There might be some differences between blocking people and removing friends on Snapchat. If you only remove them, they’ll still be able to see your public stories, while blocking is to prevent them from seeing any information about your account. Blocking is more "Scorched Earth" than removing. In a word, by blocking you’ll be removed from each other in the “Snapchat universe”.

Part 3: How to Block Someone on Snapchat?

Similar to the other social platforms, It’s pretty easy to block someone on Snapchat. It’ll only take a few minutes or so to complete. Here’s how to do it, but please think before you act:

  • 1. Open the Snapchat app and log in.
  • 2. Swipe to the right to see your friends list.
  • 3. Locate the person you want to block. Tap the name and hold.
  • 4. Select "More" to proceed.
  • 5. Tap "Block" and done.

If the person you want to block isn't on your Friends list, you need to locate them by searching their name. Just go to the magnifying glass on top of the screen and type their username. Once you have them, you can block them with the same procedure above.
