Can you find someone on Snapchat with their phone number?

Answered by Willie Powers

You can find someone on Snapchat using their phone number. Snapchat has a feature called “Quick Add” which allows you to find and add people who are in your phone contacts. Here’s how you can do it:

1. Open the Snapchat app on your phone.
2. On the Camera screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. This will bring up your profile screen.
3. Tap on the “Add Friends” option. It is represented by a person with a plus sign icon.
4. Here, you will see different options to add friends. Tap on the “Contacts” option.
5. Snapchat will then ask for your permission to access your contacts. Tap on “Allow” to proceed.
6. Snapchat will now scan your phone contacts and display a list of people who have their phone numbers associated with Snapchat accounts.
7. Scroll through the list to find the person you are looking for. You can also use the search bar at the top to enter their name or phone number for quicker results.
8. Once you have found the person you want to add, tap on their name to view their profile.
9. From their profile, you can tap on the “Add Friend” button to send them a friend request on Snapchat.
10. The person will receive a notification about your friend request and can choose to accept or decline it.

It’s important to note that in order to find someone on Snapchat using their phone number, they must have linked their phone number to their Snapchat account and allowed Snapchat to access their contacts. Additionally, if the person has chosen to keep their phone number private on Snapchat, you may not be able to find them using this method.

Snapchat provides a convenient way to find and add people using their phone numbers. However, it is ultimately up to the individual user’s privacy settings and choices whether they can be found through this method.
