Snapchat is an instant messaging and media sharing app that allows users to send snaps in a jiff and add stories to their profiles. It is like a live album that you can create and share with your friends and family. A snap is a photo and video that can be clicked using the Snapchat real-time camera.
This snap once clicked, can be shared instantly with a friend that you have added to your profile. It also comes equipped with many cool filters that you can use on your pictures and videos to make your snaps more fun.
Every snap that you share or receive adds up to your snap score and it will be visible on your profile next to the Snapchat username, and your friends will be able to see it.
In case, if you are looking to hide your Snapchat score from someone, then there is no official way to do it. But there are some alternative ways available that you can follow to hide the Snapchat score easily.
In this post, iStaunch will show you different ways to hide Snapchat score from your friends and unknown people.
Sound’s good? Let’s get started.
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 started 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. Your friends can see your score when they view your Snapchat profile, but other people whom you have not added can’t see it.
How to Hide Snapchat Score
Unfortunately, you cannot hide Snapchat score from your friends and unknown people. However, if you remove the person as a friend or block them on Snapchat, they can no longer see your snap score. This is because users can only see someone’s score if both add each other as friends.
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 need to block or remove them as friends. The best part is now you can easily block someone on Snapchat without them knowing and also remove someone from Snapchat without them knowing.
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.
Here’s how you can:
- Open Snapchat and tap on the Profile icon.
- Scroll down and click on My Friends.
- Long press on the friend you want to hide score from.
- Next, tap on the More option.
- Select Block or Remove Friend to hide your score.
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.
How to Check Someone’s Snapchat Score
As you already know to check someone’s snap score, you must have to be friends with them on Snapchat first.
Here’s how you can:
- Open Snapchat and log in to your account.
- Swipe left to right to open the Chat screen.
- Tap on the person profile whose score you want to check.
- Click on their profile icon at the top.
- Next, you will see their score next to the username.
