Here’s How I Discovered Friends Unadding Me on Snapchat

Snapchat's "Chat" page open on a smartphone.

Key Takeaway:

  • To see if a friend unadded you on Snapchat, send them a snap. If they appear under the Quick Add section, you are no longer friends with them on the app.

If you haven’t interacted with a friend on Snapchat for quite a while or their stories don’t appear on your feed, there might be a possibility that they unfriended you. While you won’t receive any notifications for that, there are easy ways to check. Here’s how I discovered friends unadding me on Snapchat.

Method 1. See Your Friend List

One of the easiest ways to know your friendship status is to check your friend list and see whether their profile is visible or not.

On your mobile phone, tap the Snapchat app. On the top-left corner of your screen, select your Bitmoji to open your profile.

Scroll down and choose My Friends.

Look for your friend’s username by scrolling down the list. Alternatively, type their username on the search bar.

If their username is visible on your friend list, they haven’t unfriended you yet. But if you can’t see their name anymore, they’ve most likely unfriended you already on Snapchat. In the worst-case scenario, you might have been blocked.

Method 2. Send a Snap

You’ll also know whether a friend has removed you on Snapchat or not when you send a snap.

Open the Snapchat app and take a snap. Then, tap the blue Send To button.

On the search bar, enter your friend’s username. You can also scroll down to look for their profile.

If their name appears in the Quick Add (or Add Friends) section, that friend has already removed you from their friend list. If they’re in the Send a Snap or Recents category, you’re still mutual on Snapchat.

Method 3. Check the Snap Score

Another method to check your friendship status is to view your friend’s snap score. Here’s how you can do it.

Select the Snapchat app. On the top-left corner of your screen, tap the search button (the magnifying glass icon).

Enter your friend’s username. Then, tap their Bitmoji to open their profile. You’re still friends on Snapchat if you can see their snap score and astrology symbol.
