How to Block Someone on Snapchat


How to Know If You’re Blocked on Snapchat?

When someone blocks you, they will not get any of your messages, and they will not appear anywhere. There are three main ways to see if anyone has blocked you.

  1. First, you can check your contact list. There, you will see all your other friends. If that person does not appear, you are blocked.
  2. Another sign would be that you cannot search for their username when you look through your list of contacts, or when trying to add a new friend. Just write the name of that person, and if you are not getting anything, you’re probably blocked.
  3. Try to send a message to that person, if you do not get an answer for a long time, or simply your message did not reach the recipient, most likely you used to be blocked.
