How To Block Someone On Snapchat Without Them Knowing?

Most Snapchat users have wondered whether they could block someone on Snapchat without them knowing. In reality, I'd get one or two people that would pop up a lot of the time, which I didn't particularly like talking to. So, I thought about blocking them. However, I didn't want to seem rude, as blocking someone on Snapchat isn't always the most pleasant option to take. At this point, I attempted to figure out how to block someone's account on Snapchat without them being aware, and I've found quite interesting things.

The best way to block someone on Snapchat without them knowing or realizing that you've blocked them is to block them typically in the first place since Snapchat won't notify them when you block them. The only way they could know you blocked them is when they try to search your name or as friends. However, I'd suggest blocking someone isn't the most efficient method to do it, especially if you and this person are somewhat friends. There are several methods how to block someone on Snapchat without knowing them.

Can You Block Someone on Snapchat Without Them Knowing?

Yes, you can easily block someone on Snapchat without them knowing since they will not get a "you have been blocked by xxx" message as Snapchat respects the user's privacy. They will also not be notified when you block them.

Let's say you want to block the person who is on your contact list. To do this, you must follow the step-by-step instructions given below.

How to Block Someone on Snapchat Without Them Knowing

  • Start the Snapchat app and log in to your Snapchat account.
  • Tap on your bitmoji avatar at the left-hand top of the screen.
  • Scroll to the bottom and tap My Friends. My Friends.
  • Below you'll see the names of your friends, tap and hold on to the username that you want to block them.
  • Doing so it will bring a menu up. From that menu, you can select more and then press the block.

How do you block someone via Snapchat Chat Page?


If you are in a conversation with someone who is going in a way that isn't right it is necessary to remove that person.

How to Block Someone Who's Not Your Friend on Snapchat

You can even remove someone from your list if they're not added as a friend on Snapchat.

You can alter your privacy settings so that only your friends cannot message you. This also is highly advised.

To do this, you must:

  1. Just click your Bitmoji to open your profile.
  2. Click the gear icon on the top-right to start "Settings".
  3. Check out a section that says "Who Can" and select "Contact Me."
  4. From here, click "My Friends."

That way, those who aren't your friends will not be able to send you any requests.

If you're always receiving requests from people wanting to connect with you on Snapchat and you've been restraining their requests, a good option is to keep those requests open. That way they won't have the ability to contact you again.

How To Unblock A Friend On Snapchat?

In case you have changed your mind and want to make friends with someone who you have previously blocked, you are able to change your mind quickly.

If you deblock a friend the friend will be able to contact you with Chats & Snaps. Also, they can view your Charms and Stories.

Step 2: Go to Settings.

Step 3: Scroll down to locate the "Blocked" option.

Step 4: Press the cross button alongside the name of the person whom you would like to remove from your block.

A dialog box that confirms your action will pop up; tap on Yes to remove the blocker.

Will Someone Know When You Block Them On Snapchat?

If you block someone on Snapchat the person won't receive any notifications directly telling them, "You've Been Blocked." However, several events will occur that indicate that you've blocked them. For one, they can't find you on Snapchat no matter how much they search for your name or username.

In addition, they cannot send you photos or messages, and you'll be removed from their contacts list. If you have an open conversation with them, they'll be able to send you messages, however, you won't receive them. The messages just appear to be "unread" on their screens. If they've got an unopened snap it will be possible to see the snap even after you block them till the snap expires. Plus, if your accounts are private people can't see your story or your profile as they require your permission of you to tag your stories.

However, your chat is deleted only on your side, and you will get the conversation as though nothing has transpired. However, you can still see their posts and stories even if they have an account with a public profile. They'll see your username instead of your name and you'll be listed on their friend list, even though they're in yours. The messages you've sent will disappear after you block the person.

If you already have the person blocked on your best friends list the person will be removed from your list when you block them. This is due to the fact that"Best Friend" is a "Best Friend" feature that relies on your interaction with them. It's null once you have clocked the person. If a blocked friend takes screenshots of your messages, you won't get a notification. After you have unblocked them, you won't know if they've taken any screenshots of your conversation. If they care enough to inquire about the reason why you've become a ghost to them, they'll find out that you've blocked them.
