What is a Snapchat Score?

A Snapchat score is nothing else but a count of total snaps you have sent and received to date on the app. Every snap that you send to a friend adds up to your score. Similarly, every snap received from a friend also adds to your score. A snap streak is formed when you continue to gain scores for a streak of days.

This score is accessible to your friends that are people you have added to your profile on Snapchat. Your friends can see your score, but other people whom you have not added cannot.

How to Hide Your Snapchat Score

Unfortunately, you cannot hide your Snapchat score from someone. Snapchat has decided to keep this information public. However, if you remove the person as a friend or block them, they can no longer see your Snapchat score.

Here’s how you can:

There are so many personal or professional reasons to block or remove your friend on Snapchat, but today the reason is clear – want to hide your Snapchat score.

As Snapchat doesn’t directly hide your score, you must need to block or remove them as friends.

If you don’t know how to do that, then don’t worry. We’re here to tell you the exact steps to block or remove someone on Snapchat.

  • Open Snapchat and tap on the Profile icon.

If you still want to continue receiving snaps from them, you need to allow people to send you snaps even when they are not added as friends to your profile.

To do this, navigate to settings and then privacy in the app, allow people who are not friends to send you snaps. This will allow everyone on Snapchat to send you snaps.

So your friends would still be able to share their pictures with you, but they won’t be counted as your Snap friends. This will also mean that they won’t be contributing to your Snap score anymore since only snaps from friends count.
