How to Turn Someone Off, Delete, or Block Them on Snapchat!

how to block someone on snapchat

With Snapchat, you can send your friends notes, photos, and videos that disappear after a certain amount of time. The only trouble you have is with people you don’t want to be friends with on Snapchat. What do you do when one snap is one too many?

You can delete someone pretty easily on Snapchat, which is good news. If you delete a Snapchat user, they (or you) can still add them again at any time. You can also block someone on Snapchat so they can’t try to get back on your list of friends.

You can also mute a Snapchat friend to stop getting alerts from them. Follow the steps below to learn how to mute, delete, or block someone on Snapchat.

How To Put a Person on Mute on Snapchat?

Before you delete a Snapchat friend, you might want to try the less drastic choice of “muting” them first. If you put a Snapchat friend on mute, you won’t know when they send you a message or a snap.

This lets you ignore them until you want to talk to them again.

To Stop Hearing Someone on Snapchat:

  1. Open the Snapchat app.
  2. Tap the Chat tab at the bottom.
  3. Next, tap the three-dot icon in the top-right.


  • Select Manage Friendships at the bottom.


  • Select a friend from the list to view a chat with them.
  • Next, select the name of the friend at the top.


  • Tap the Message Notifications and Games and Mini Notifications sliders to the Off position.
  • Tap Done to save the changes.


If you turn off notifications for that person, they can still send you a message or snap, but you won’t know about it.

If you delete a Snapchat friend, they may still be able to see your old texts in the chat list. But any texts they send you will show up on Snapchat as “pending.” This is because Snapchat users who have been blocked can’t send texts to users who have blocked them.

To hide someone on Snapchat, you can use the same steps as above. Users who have blocked you can’t try to add you back to their Snapchat friend list. You also won’t show up when people look for your username.

  2. Select the Chat tab from the bottom menu.
  3. Tap the round profile icon next to a friend you’ve chatted to previously.

  • Select the three-dot menu icon > Manage Friendships from the friend’s personal menu.


  • To block a friend on Snapchat, tap the Block option.


  • If asked, choose Block to confirm that you want to do this.

Blocked friends will be taken off your list of Snapchat friends right away. You and the person you blocked won’t be able to send texts to each other.

How To Let Someone Back Into Your Snapchat?

If you change your mind about blocking someone on Snapchat after you’ve already done it, you’ll need to go into your Snapchat user settings to unblock them.

To ban someone on Snapchat:
