Snapchat values its user’s privacy, like any other social networking site. That’s why the app has introduced a plethora of interesting features that make it possible for people to enjoy the highest level of privacy while showing their posts and stories to their friends and loved ones.
It has added an option that allows you to block people from watching your stories on Snapchat. In simple words, if someone blocks you from their story list, you will no longer be able to watch their stories every time they post something new.
Sadly, Snapchat will not notify when someone blocked you from seeing their story.
The most common reason why you might be unable to watch their stories is that they have set their preference to “friends only” and you might not be on their friend list. Or, it could be because of a simple technical glitch.
Sometimes, Snapchat shows an error that says “story is unavailable”. That doesn’t always mean the person has blocked you. It can be because of a technical error.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to know who blocked you from seeing their story on Snapchat.
Can You Tell if Someone Blocked You from Seeing Their Story on Snapchat?
Unfortunately, there is no way to tell if someone blocked you from seeing their story on Snapchat. That’s because it will violate the users’ privacy. Their story must be visible to other friends, except those who they have added to their block list. Also, there is no direct way to tell if someone blocked you from seeing their story on Snapchat.
However, there are a few tricks that might help to tell if someone blocked you from seeing their story on Snapchat.
How to Tell if Someone Blocked You from Seeing Their Story on Snapchat
Method 1: Ask Your Friend
If they have set their privacy settings to “friends only”, then ask a common friend who’s following you and the target’s account to see if the story is visible to them.
However, for this method to work, this person must be on the target’s friends list. If they have kept their story settings to “everyone”, you can ask anyone to check their Snapchat account.
Ask this friend to send you the story uploaded by the target. If you are unable to view the story or you receive a message that says “story unavailable”, you are most likely blocked by the user.
Method 2: Making a second/fake Snapchat account
This one seems a bit snoopy. So, switch into detective mode because that’s what you’ll be doing with this strategy.
You should be aware that the typical way to use this app is to add your closest friends and share photos with them. However, you also can make your profile public, and doing so is now more frequent.
It would be relatively easy for you to see their story if they have a public profile and have set their stories to Everyone. Click on them in their stories to see them.
If they have a private account, you will need to persuade them to add you as a friend somehow. You can access the stories after they give their approval.
If you can view the story on your second/fake account but not on your primary one, then there is your answer.
Now that the blog has come to a close let’s go through what we’ve reviewed thus far.
We discussed how to determine whether someone has blocked you from seeing their Snapchat story. Although the application doesn’t make it simple for us to figure it out, there are small cues scattered throughout that might be of help.
We first discussed looking for any bugs or unstable networks on your end. In addition to seeing if they have blocked you on the app, you can also check it with a friend. You can perhaps create a second or fake account if they have blocked you from their stories.
We sincerely hope that these indicators helped verify your suspicions about the person!
