How To Know If Someone Has Blocked You On Snapchat

It’s natural to be inquisitive about whoihas blocked you on Snapchat or other social platforms, here are three easy ways to find out without giving them a hint. 

Check the chat history

The biggest clue if someone has blocked you is looking at your chat history. Snapchat removes the chat tab as soon as someone blocks you despite you recently having a conversation with them. 

If you can’t see your chat history with the focused user, it means they have blocked you on Snapchat. 

Note: This step is only helpful if you haven’t cleared your Snapchat history or deleted the chat with the user.

How to look at your chat history to know if someone has blocked you on Snapchat?

Step 1:

Open Snapchat and tap on the “Message tab icon.”


Step 2:

Scroll down to find the chat tab of a user

However, once you couldn’t find the chat tab, it could be possible that you cleared the conversation a long time ago. We will move to the next step for reassurance.

Search their Snapchat username

There is a difference between being blocked and being deleted.

If someone has blocked you, you can’t find them on Snapchat’s search tab. They will be untraceable. 

However, if they have deleted you, then you can find them in your friend list (only in case you didn’t delete them from your Snapchat friend list).

The bottom line is if both parties have only unfriended each other, they can find each other with a username on Snapchat as long as one of them hasn’t blocked the other one.

You will find them under the name of my friend or added a friend label if they haven’t blocked you.

Ask your friend to find their account

You might still confuse if they have blocked you or the user has deleted his account from scratch. To clear this confusion, you can ask your friend who uses Snapchat to look at the user account. 

If your friend couldn’t find a person’s account, that means users have deleted Snapchat accounts from scratch.  And if your friend has found a suspected account, it means they have blocked you. 

If you don’t want to bother your friends, you can simply make a new brand account and search for their profiles.
