How to know if someone blocked you on Snapchat?

Method 1: Have a look at your recent conversations with that person

To know whether someone has blocked you on Snapchat or not, view the recently held conversations with them. Does the suspected user who might have blocked you, show up in your chat list? If yes, then you have not been blocked. But if the answer is No, that is a huge indication that you have been blocked. However, it is just an indication. We’ll move on to the next method if this is the case.

Note: It might happen that after having the conversation, you could have deleted the chat. If this is the case, keep reading.

Method 2: Type their name or username in the Search bar

You won’t find the user when you search for them on Snapchat if they have blocked you. On the contrary, you should be able to locate them by searching for them, if they removed you from their list of friends.

If someone blocked you, you won’t be able to locate any information about their account and won’t be able to get in touch with them by using the blocked account.

Note: It might happen that if the user is not showing up even after searching them, they might have deleted their Snap account. If that is the possibility, then here’s one more method.

Method 3: Search for them using another account

The possibility that the person you looked for in the previous stage blocked you is increased if you are unable to navigate them, but this does not prove anything. By looking up the individual from another account, you might be able to verify whether their account is still active or not.

You can ask a mutual friend to come to your rescue. Or create a new account for yourself. If their name shows up, then you have definitely been blocked.


How many times can we block or unblock someone on Snapchat?

It has been observed that Snapchat imposes temporal limitations on users who re-add friends they have blocked. Therefore, Snapchat may prohibit you from re-adding them for a whole day (24 hours) if you keep blocking and unblocking them for a short period of time.

Would the blocked user get to know that I have blocked them?

Snapchat does not notify someone that you have blocked them. However, using one of the above-mentioned ways, the blocked user can know for themselves.

Will the blocked user remain blocked if I reactivate my deleted Snapchat account?

After you delete your Snapchat account and reactivate it within the 30-day period, once blocked, the user will still remain blocked.

Final Words

You can easily block and/or unblock someone by following the steps mentioned in this guide. Ensure that you follow them thoroughly to get the desired results. Before you block someone, do consider the implications it will have on you and the person you are blocking.
