How to Find Deleted Friends on Snapchat

Do you know where the stories’ trends generated from? Well, Snapchat happens to be the first-ever social media platform that made stories a trend in 2011. Since then, the app has become the user’s favorite place for sharing special moments via stories in the form of photos and videos that automatically vanish after 24 hours. It’s emerged as a leading social app with its wide range of amazing filters and other functions.

In addition to that, there are many things in the app that set it apart from other social sites. Like other platforms, Snapchat provides you with the options of following, unfollowing, and deleting different users.

If you are not interested in someone you followed a few months ago, there is a simple delete and block button for removing them from your friend list.

Now, there is also a chance you may want to be friends again with a deleted contact, or perhaps you have deleted a contact accidentally. Either way, note that it’s possible to get the deleted user back on your friend’s list in a few simple steps.

If you’re new to Snapchat, this guide will tell you how to find deleted friends on Snapchat.

You must be wondering how the contact that I have removed from my following list will show up on my friend’s list. Well, one interesting fact about Snapchat is that the users you have deleted will still show up in your friend’s list for a short period.

3. Find using Snapcode

The fastest way to find a deleted contact on Snapchat is through Snapcode. Here’s how to do that:

  • Open the Snapchat app.
  • Head over to your profile and find the “Add Friends” section.
  • Tap the ghost icon.
  • See if you have the Snapcode available in your gallery.
  • If the Snapcode is right, then the platform will scan the code and get that person back to your friend’s list.
