Let’s simply state that you can locate and add them on Snapchat again; you only have to use the strategies we covered in this blog. Why don’t you look them over and see which suits you best? Now, let’s get started.
If I Delete Someone on Snapchat and Forgot Their Username, How Can i Find and Add Them Again?
Re-adding someone as a friend after deleting them from Snapchat and forgetting their username seems like a lot of work! We can assure you that it won’t be, and you’ll finish up soon. Pay close attention to the details below as we cover a variety of ways to add the person to your friend list.
Method 1: Download your data on Snapchat
The first approach we try is downloading the Snapchat data to find the list of deleted friends. The steps have been divided into two sections.
We go over how to locate a person’s Snapchat username that we erased in the first part. The second section discusses adding them back as a friend on the site.
Are you prepared to understand and follow each step now? Let’s go through them.
Here’s how you find the username of your deleted friends:
Step 1: On Snapchat, access your profile page by tapping the profile icon in the upper left corner.
Step 2: To access the Settings page, click the Gear icon in the top right corner.
Step 3: Go to the Account Actions tab at the bottom of the screen. Locate and press the My Data option under it.
Step 4: Enter your username and password on the My Data page.
Step 5: Choose the information you want to download and click the next button.
Step 6: Although it’s optional, you can filter your export by date range.
Step 7: Verify the email address to which you want the requested data to be sent, then click the submit button.
Step 8: Upon doing so, Snapchat will start creating a copy of files.
Note that this process can take long (possibly hours or days) to complete. You’ll receive an email when your export is done.
Step 9: Once you get the file, open the email and extract it.
Step 10: In the next step, locate the Friends file.
Step 11: Go to Deleted Friends and search for the target user. You’ll see their Username and Display name via this method.
Steps to add your deleted friends as a friend again on Snapchat:
Step 1: The Add Friends icon will appear in the upper right corner when you launch Snapchat. Just tap it.
Step 2: Type the target user’s username into the search field and begin your search.
Step 3: Their account will appear under Add friends. There is an Add option next to their username and display name. Press the button.
All that’s left to do is wait for the other person to approve your request so you may be friends again on this platform.
Method 2: Confirm the username with mutual friends
If the previous strategy seems like too much work, we can help with another effective way. How about you get in touch with your mutual friends who are connected to the individual you deleted from the app?
You can gently ask about the username you’re seeking if you have a strong relationship. If your friends are willing, they can easily tell you the username, so ask them if they would be willing to do so.
Here’s how you check someone’s username on Snapchat:
Step 1: On Snapchat, scroll to the target user’s chat and click on their profile icon.
Step 2: Right under their Display name is their username.
See how simple it is now? If your pals aren’t aware of the steps, tell them about the steps and ask them to let you know.
Method 3: Use the Snapcode method
Have you connected with the mentioned individual using Snapchat’s Snapcode feature? If you don’t have the username of a person, this approach could work.
