How to Know If Someone Blocked You on Snapchat

In Short
  • Figuring out if someone has blocked you on Snapchat can be confusing, but there are some telltale signs to find out if you've been blocked.
  • Recent chats disappearing, profile details not being visible, and being unable to find the user's profile in search are just some of the methods.
  • It is always recommended that you log out of your account and then sign in again if you are suspicious of being blocked on Snapchat.

While Snapchat is a great way to keep in touch with friends, there are times when conversations can get heated leading to the other person blocking you. Since Snapchat does not inform you if you have been blocked, it can be confusing to learn why you aren’t able to reach the other person anymore. So to help you out, we have mentioned simple ways that you can try out to check whether someone on Snapchat has blocked you.

When you get blocked by someone, it is quite evident at a glance that the contact has blocked you. However, if you are still suspicious regarding the same then you can consider going through the signs that we have discussed below.

Note: We would recommend that you log out of the Snapchat app and then log back into your account before proceeding further with any of the methods we have mentioned below. We were only able to see some of the changes after logging out and logging back in.

Method 1: Check Your Recent Chats

When you get blocked by a user on Snapchat, your ongoing chat with them should disappear from the chat list. To verify this, open the Snapchat app, go to the Chats tab, and check your recent chats. If the user has blocked you then your conversation with them should not be visible anymore.

Although, in certain instances, the chat will remain visible even if they have blocked you due to some bug with the app. In such cases, you should take a look at the rest of the methods.

Method 2: Old Delivered Texts Appear Opened

If the conversation does not disappear for you, the messages you send will be marked as delivered. Delivered indicates that the other user has received your text but has not seen it. When they open your chat, the message on your end should say Opened. However, due to a bug, texts sent to a blocked user appear “Opened” when you log back into your account. To test this, use these steps:

  • Send a text to a user whom you suspect has blocked you. It should be marked delivered.
  • Now, tap on your profile icon in the top left corner.
  • On your profile page, tap the gear icon.
Tap on profile icon to open Profile page then go to Settings.
  • Scroll down to the bottom. Here, tap on Log Out.
  • Select Log Out again in the confirmation box.
Press Log Out in Settings and then again on the confirmation prompt.
  • After logging out, tap on the Log In button to sign into your account again.
  • Check whether the delivered text now shows as Opened instantly after logging in.

If that is the case then it could be very likely that you have been blocked by the other user. You should also look out for their Avatar in the chat window. If they did open your text then the Avatar should be visible but if you are blocked then you won’t be able to see it.

Method 3: Profile Details Disappeared

If you have been blocked by someone, their profile details should not be visible to you any longer. By profile details, we mean stuff like their Snap score, Horoscope sign, Stories, and public profile. To check this, follow these steps.

  • Go to the Chat tab and open the conversation with the individual.
  • Tap on their profile icon or name in the top left.
  • Look for their info on the profile page.
Tap on User Profile Icon or name and check their details are visible or not.

Here, you should only be able to view their Avatar along with an + Add button. It might indicate that they have removed you as a friend but tapping on the Add button won’t send them a request confirming that you have been blocked.

Method 4: Cannot Find Them in My Friends List

Once you get blocked by an account on Snapchat, they will automatically get removed as your friend. As a result, when you go searching for their account in the My Friends list, you won’t be able to find them. Here are the steps to search for the suspected account in your friends list.

  • Open Snapchat and tap on your profile icon in the top left corner.
  • Scroll down to My Friends and tap on it.
Open profile page then go to my friends list,
  • Using the search bar at the top, look for their account or Snapchat username.

If you can’t find them then the user may have blocked you. But it also might be possible that they have removed you as a friend from their end. So just try the rest of the methods to confirm your suspicion.

Method 5: Search their Username on the App

We recommend that you also try searching for their name or Snapchat username on the Stories or Camera tab search bar. See if they have only removed you as a friend, then their account should still be visible to you. Their account won’t appear whatsoever in case you have been blocked.

Tap on the search icon and then look up the user using search in Snapchat

To search for them, just open the app, tap on the search icon in the top left, and type their name to see if it appears in the search results.

Method 6: Search Using a Different Account

An extension to the above discussed method would be to use a different account. As one might make a case that the user might have deleted their account. . To confirm, this, you can try searching for their username using a different account other than yours. Like a friend’s ID or an alternative ID of yours. If you can find the user in search or My Friends list on your friends account then it will be enough to confirm that you have been blocked.

These are some of the methods that you can try for yourself to check whether you got blocked on Snapchat or not. Snapchat does not make it easy for you to learn if you have been blocked as the app itself bugs out for some reason and in certain instances like the one we encountered, you might still be able to view all the details of the blocked individual. That is the reason why we recommend that you log out and then re-login before trying any of the methods above. Do let us know if you found any of them useful in your situation.

Will Snapchat Notify Me If I Get Blocked?

No. Snapchat won’t show you any alert or notification to let you know that the user has blocked your account. This might have been done due to privacy and security reasons.

What Happens When Someone Blocks Your Account on Snapchat?

When you account gets blocked, typically the conversation between you two should disappear, you should not be able to look up their username or view their Snapscore, Horoscope sign, other details.

Why Can I Still Access Chat and Other Details After Being Blocked on Snapchat?

This seems to be a bug as several users have noted that at times, Snapchat won’t just outright hide chats and other details of the individual who blocked you. Thus, making it difficult to identify if you have been blocked. To fix this bugs, log out and log into your account.

  • Natasha Tipu says:

    So I have a friend In snapchat. I can send snaps to the person and texts too, however I cannot see their snap score and I am able to see his bitmoji. Anyone help?

  • Anonymous User says:

    When I search his name on my friends list, it says no results. Then if I search it in find friends it shows up and says added. If I click on it, I don’t have the option to send snaps or chats and I can’t see his snap score. Also before the arrow showed up grey if I tried sending something and now it’s blue. Am I blocked?

    • RJ says:

      Same Happened to me

    • Anonymous says:

      Snapchat is broken. I’m still able to send a message to the person in Snapchat and there isn’t an error message. I know for a fact that they blocked me because I asked them and they told me yes. It does give me an error message when I try and add them though. It’s most likely a block.

  • Kooka says:

    I have a friend who blocked me .. anyways i was still able to send him a snap (picture) it got sent and it was a red arrow? But i cant add or chat with him .. any answer?

    • Anonymous says:

      Same with me. It’s a glitch. They most likely can’t see them. I still see my snap streak with them. It’s most likely a glitch in SC. I was blocked and can still send photos as well. They aren’t showing up as failed though.

  • Unknown says:

    Their on my friends list but when I tap on their profile I cant see their snap score or anything all I see is their bitmoji and a recommendation list underneath. I still have the option to unfriend them but I’m scared that if I do and I was still added they’ll feel hurt!

  • Yoki ko says:

    I just can’t find him, he disappeared from my friends list. I saw him send me a message but but I don’t know what did I clicked and I just can’t find him on my friend list. Please help me

  • Ann says:

    Same problem, but its showing they see my messages when I save them but not showing opened, help?

  • Snap star says:

    I can see their username, snapscore, etc. but cannot text them or see their stories… Tapping on send message bar does not do anything and sending snaps to them is possible but I can’t view the chat history or anything.. I can see that person has added me back though.. anyone know what could be the problem?

  • bran says:

    I can still send messages but they’re not opening it. Also, when I look at their profile it says Add Friend, but when I do, it says couldn’t find that username. It’s kinda confusing because I’m not sure if I got blocked, he’s still on my chat list but whenever I search his username, nothing is showing.

    • Umer says:

      Same thing happening with me. Did you got any answer?

    • Shery Malik says:

  • Mobi says:

  • Melissa says:

    So he saw my stories and was in my friend’s list, then he name is under other snapchatters and I can’t click on his name, and can find him to add as a friend

    • Pearl says:

      What a coincidence… except, I’ve thought this person has blocked me before and instead their account was deactivated. I was able to send a message, but then I logged off. Logged back on. And they disappeared. Did they deactivate their account? Did they actually block me? I have to wait to find out and it’s frustrating.

      • C says:

        Maybe they just deactivated or they blocked you. Maybe ask the person if they deactivated. Persons name doesn’t appear in friends list. I thought I was blocked too, I searched for username didn’t see it and I made up another account (or you can ask friend also) and I searched didn’t find their name. I think this means a deactivated or deleted account. When you get unfriended, you can’t see score and says add friend.

    • Yussuf says:

      The sane problem is with me plz


  • Patience says:

    So the contacts name has emojis after it in my phone book

    What if its only their first name comes up in the camera home screen Search for friend ,

    but when you go to the “add friend” section in snap chat & search their user name their & the name you saved them as in your contacts with the emojis comes up in that section?

  • ruth says:

    They blocked you.

  • Patience says:

    What if like you could still send someone messages and it’s still blue. But all of a sudden you go to their profile and it says,”add friend” but when you press on the button nothing happens?

    • Someone says:

      I’m having the same problem

    • Domo says:

      I’m having this problem, did u find out what it means?

    • Harrison Jones says:
