It’s very easy to get addicted to Snapchat’s unique user interface. In fact, all users have fallen prey to it at some point. During this time, they send countless snaps to all their friends on Snapchat and get mad at those friends who accidentally break their snap streak.

So, how do you know if someone unfriended you on Snapchat? Or how to tell if someone unfriended you on Snapchat?

Keep reading because that’s what we’ll discuss in our blog today.

Does Snapchat Notify When Someone Unfriended You?

If you thought that Snapchat would notify you if any of your Snapchat friends unfriend you, then you’re in for an unpleasant surprise.

No, Snapchat won’t notify you if you get unfriended by a friend on the platform. Snapchat is wholly built on the basis of the privacy that it provides to its users. Telling you that you’ve been unfriended can cause problems for the other user, which is why the platform doesn’t do anything if any of your friends unfriend you.

However, Snapchat doesn’t exactly hide the fact that you’ve been unfriended either. So, if you simply go ahead and check if you still have that person as a friend or not, you’ll surely find the answer.

To make your work easier for you, we’ll talk about all the ways in which you can find out if you’ve been unfriended.

How to Know if Someone Unfriended You on Snapchat

1. Check Your Friend List

The first and the most obvious way to know someone unfriended you on Snapchat is by checking your friend list. We’ve even mapped out the steps you’ll need to follow in order to do so.

  • Open the Snapchat app on your smartphone and log in to your account.
  • The first screen that you’ll see is the Snapchat camera. At the top left corner of the screen, you’ll see your bitmoji. Tap on it.

  • Under Friends, click on the second option called My Friends. You’ll see a list of all your Snapchat friends. Locate the search bar at the top of the screen. Tap on it and type in the name of your friend who you think has unfriended you.

If you can see their name, then they’re still friends with you. However, if you can’t find them on this list,  it means that they’ve either unfriended you or blocked you.

2. Snaps You Send Them Will Be Pending

Another sure-fire sign that they’ve unfriended you on Snapchat is if all the snaps you send them are pending. There’s a simple way to see if your snaps aren’t reaching them.

  • Open the Snapchat app on your smartphone and log in to your account.
  • The first screen that you’ll see is the Snapchat camera. Take a snap of your surroundings, and send it to them.
  • After that, open their chat. If you see a message saying, “Your snaps and chats will be pending until [insert name] adds you as a friend,” then they’ve unfriended you on Snapchat.

3. Search for their Snapscore

Snapchat keeps track of all the snaps that you’ve sent and received. This information is called your Snapscore. In short, the longer you’ve been using Snapchat, the higher your Snapscore will be.

Your Snapscore is also displayed on your profile, but only to the users who are your friends on the platform. So, all you need to do is check and see if their Snapscore is visible to you. If it isn’t, then they’ve unfriended you on Snapchat.

  • Open the Snapchat app on your smartphone and log in to your account.
  • The first screen you’ll see is the Snapchat camera. Swipe right to open your Chats tab.
  • In your Chat tab, locate your chat with the user you think has unfriended you, and click on their bitmoji.
  • Firstly, you’ll see their name, with their username right below it. Under that, you’ll see three small tabs: the first one will display your Relationship status, the second one contains their Snapscore, and the last one has their Zodiac sign.

However, if they have unfriended you, all you’ll see is their name, username, and a message saying, “Friends with [insert name] since [insert date].”


Snapchat respects the privacy of its users and therefore, doesn’t notify any user when they’ve been unfriended. However, there are a number of quick hacks that can tell you if you’ve been unfriended, and we’ve discussed them in our blog.

If you’re annoyed by one of your friends’ Snapchat activities and want to unfriend them, we understand. We’ve also laid down the step-by-step instructions on how you can do exactly that.

Lastly, we’ve talked about how unfriending someone doesn’t affect your chats in any manner whatsoever. If our blog has helped you in any way, don’t hesitate to tell us all about it in the comment section below!
