Who doesn’t love Snapchat? With its cheery-bubbly, yellow-themed mobile app designed especially for teenagers and young adults, Snapchat is one of the most used social media platforms in the world today. Even though Facebook and Instagram are currently in first and second place worldwide in terms of monthly active users, Snapchat is a consistent third. There are several USPs (Unique Selling Points) of the platform which seemingly won’t let it slip down from its current position, at least not in the foreseeable future.
The features offered on the platform are designed to keep the users coming back for more. Moreover, their way of doing it differs from Instagram, which is seemingly blatant and obvious in its intentions. Snapchat has a more subtle, undemanding pull.
For example, let’s talk about the snap streaks feature. Even though it looks like a fun and interesting way to engage with your friends, think about it. Is there any practical use of the feature other than as an excuse to use Snapchat at least once daily?
That’s what we thought. Streaks have a deeper psychology than most people can or care to understand. A streak has no apparent value, and it takes nothing more than time to create another one. Still, Snapchat users are frequently seen mailing Snapchat to revive their streaks with their friends.
That’s a good marketing strategy if we’ve ever seen one.
Moving on, privacy and security are one of the constant concerns of users ever since the practice of hacking was made public knowledge. No one wants their data to be seen by someone else, even though all they were looking at was cooking videos, and it’s entirely understandable.
It’s not about what they find but the principle behind the finding. What if tomorrow, they decide they don’t want to watch cooking videos and shift to something they’d rather not tell everyone?
There was also a problem among the users. There are all kinds of people on social media, which includes a few people who’re only there to scam innocent users and just disturb their experience in general.
Don’t you think Snapchat is a perfect package for young users and older millennials alike?
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss why someone appeared under your Added Me Section even after you deleted their profile from the requests.
Why Does Someone Appear Under Added Me Section Saying Added You Back After I Deleted Them?
If someone you don’t know has added you on Snapchat, you’d probably want to delete their request, as we’d all do. However, let us tell you that deleting someone’s request does not stop them from adding you once and sending you another request.
If you feel harassed when they send you a request a second time, the best way to go about it is to block them to avoid seeing them on the platform again unless you wish to do so.
Here’s how to accept someone’s request on Snapchat:
Step 1: Launch Snapchat on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll see is your Snapchat camera. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see five icons. Tap on the icon on the left of the camera with the word Chat written under it.
Step 3: At the top right corner of the screen, tap on the icon next to the three dots icon, which will take you to the Add Friends page.
Step 4: At the top, you’ll see a subsection called Added Me, which contains a list of everyone who’s sent you a friend request. Tap on the Accept button beside their username to accept the request.
How to ignore someone’s friend request on Snapchat
Ignoring someone’s request is easy, but the feature in itself is not that useful.
This is because when you ignore someone’s request, they can always go back and delete that request and send another one. In a situation like this, it’s best to block the user.
Still, just for your knowledge, here’s how to ignore someone’s request.
Follow steps 1 through 3 from the last section.
Step 4: Instead of tapping the Accept button from the Added Me subsection, tap on the cross button.
You’ll receive a confirmation message asking if you wish to ignore the request. Tap on Ignore, and your work here is done.

Step 5: Type in the username of the person you wish to block and hit Enter.

In the end
As we come to the end of this blog, let us recap all that we’ve talked about today.
If you ignore someone’s Snapchat friend request, they can go back to unfriend you from their list and send you another request. Although it isn’t a common practice, all it takes is a person desperate enough.
To get rid of problems like these, it’s best to block the user, and we’ve laid down the steps for you.
