How to Block Someone on Snapchat

Oyetoke Tobi - Wednesday, February 08, 2017

Is there someone troubling you or giving you headache on Snapchat? Want to block him/her? With the Snapchat block feature, you can easily block anyone on Snapchat.

Snapchat, is one the easiest social networks app for people to abuse especially with its disappearing photos feature. What most people don’t know is that a one-second Snap can be very traumatic and hard to prove that it actually happened; except you’re a geek phone users and quick enough to screenshot it, because it’s gone the instant you look at it. So if someone is harassing you on Snapchat and there’s no proof you can use against him/her, here’s how to block them forever.

What Happens When You Block Someone on Snapchat?

When you block someone on Snapchat, Snapchat removes them from your Friends list and likewise removes you from their Friends list. Snapchat blocks them from sending you Snaps and Chats and blocks them from seeing your Story. Also prevents them from re-adding you as a Friend.

With this, you won’t be receiving any offending Snaps from the Snapchat user anymore.


How to Block Someone on Snapchat

There are a few methods you can use to block someone on Snapchat. For instance if the person you want to block has sent you a Snap a moment ago, just tap and long press their name in the Chat screen.

Tap on the Gear icon and then tap on Block option. Then tap on Block again.

That’s all, they’re now blocked and removed from your friends list forever.

However, if the person you want to block hasn’t sent you a Snap for some time now, just head over to the Snap screen and swipe down.

Then tap on My Friends. Then tap and long press the name of the person you want to block.

Like before, tap on the Gear icon followed by tapping the Block twice.

Lastly, to block someone who added you as a Friend before but you haven’t added he/she back, just head over to the Snap screen and swipe down as usual.

Then tap on Added Me entry this time. Then tap and long press the name of the person you want to block.

As usual, tap the Gear icon and tap on the Block twice to block them finally.

How to Unblock Someone on Snapchat

Unblock someone on Snapchat is as easy as blocking someone. Just swipe down on the Snap screen and tap on the Gear icon.

Then scroll down to Account Actions subheading and tap on Blocked entry. From there, you’ll be able to see the list of people you’ve blocked on Snapchat.

So to unblock anyone, just tap on the X button beside the person’s name you want to unblock them.

After unblocking them, you’ll need to re-add them as a friend i.e. if you want to add them again.
