What do people see when you block them on Snapchat?

Answered by Tom Adger

When you block someone on Snapchat, they will not receive any notification or indication that they have been blocked. However, there are a few things that people may notice which could lead them to realize they have been blocked.

1. Disappearance from friends list: When you block someone on Snapchat, they will no longer be visible on your friends list. If the person you blocked regularly interacts with you on Snapchat, they may notice your sudden absence from their friends list. However, this alone does not necessarily mean they have been blocked, as there could be other reasons for your disappearance, such as deactivating your account or unfriending them.

2. Inability to send or receive snaps and messages: When someone is blocked on Snapchat, they lose the ability to send you snaps or messages. If the person you blocked tries to send you a snap or message, it will not be delivered, and they may notice that you are no longer responding to their attempts at communication. This could raise suspicion and make them wonder if they have been blocked.

3. Unable to view your story or see your Bitmoji on the Snap Map: Another indication that someone may realize they have been blocked on Snapchat is if they are unable to view your Snapchat story or see your Bitmoji on the Snap Map. If they were previously able to see your updates and suddenly can’t, they might start questioning why they can’t access your content anymore.

4. Mutual friends’ snaps: If you have mutual friends on Snapchat, they may inadvertently reveal that you have blocked someone. For example, if you are in a group chat or if your mutual friend shares a snap or message from the blocked person, they may notice that you are not mentioned or included in the conversation. This can be a clear indication that you have blocked the person in question.

5. Profile changes: If the person you blocked tries to search for your profile or view your profile information, they may notice changes. For instance, your display name or Bitmoji might be different, or your score may have significantly decreased if you’re not actively using Snapchat.

It’s important to note that while these signs may indicate that someone has been blocked, they are not definitive proof. There could be other reasons for these changes, such as privacy settings or temporary account deactivation. Ultimately, unless you explicitly tell someone that you have blocked them, they may never know for sure.
