4 min read
Have you ever wanted to block someone on Snapchat, but you're unsure of what happens when you do? Blocking someone on Snapchat can be a great way to protect yourself from unwanted messages, pictures, and other content. But what does it mean when you block someone on Snapchat? In this article we'll explore the nuances of blocking someone on Snapchat, including what happens when you block someone and what happens when you unblock them. We'll also discuss how the blocked user can still interact with you and your content even after they're blocked. So, if you want to know exactly what happens when you block someone on Snapchat, keep reading!
What does blocking someone on Snapchat do?
Blocking someone on Snapchat prevents them from contacting you and seeing your Stories, Snaps, and any other public content you share on the app. When you block someone, they will no longer be able to view your profile or add you as a friend. Additionally, they won't be able to send you Snaps, chats, or see any of your Stories or groups. Blocking someone also hides your Snapscore from them.
Are You Still Visible to Blocked Users?
When you block someone on Snapchat, you will no longer appear visible to them. They will no longer be able to see your stories, send you messages and you won’t be able to see their stories, messages or other content. However, you will still be visible to the blocked user if you are both in the same group chat, or if they view your profile in direct messaging. Additionally, if you have mutual friends, the blocked user may still be able to see your posts on their feed.
Can a Blocked User See Your Story and Highlights?
When you block someone on Snapchat, they are no longer able to view your Story or Highlights, as well as send you messages or snaps. Your block list appears in the Settings, and you can unblock someone at any time. If you unblock them, they will be able to view your Story and Highlights again. However, you may still have a conversation with that user if you choose to - but it's important to remember that it will still be private, and only visible to you and the person you have blocked.
Can a Blocked User See Your Profile Picture?
When you block someone on Snapchat, that person will no longer be able to view your profile picture. However, it’s important to note that the blocked person can still potentially view your profile picture by taking a screenshot prior to being blocked. In addition, if you have previously had a conversation with the blocked person, they may still be able to view old messages from before the block. Unfortunately, this does mean that if you don’t want a blocked user to see your profile picture, it’s best to take precautions such as not sending them any messages or photos prior to blocking them.
Are Blocked Users Notified When They've Been Blocked?
When a user is blocked on Snapchat, they will be removed from your contact list and you will no longer receive updates from them. In addition, the blocked user will not be notified that they have been blocked. However, the blocked user may have suspicions as they will no longer see your stories or Snaps. If the blocked user tries to send you a message, they will still be able to do so, but their messages will not show up in your inbox.
What Happens When You Unblock Someone on Snapchat?
When you unblock someone on Snapchat, they will be added back to your friends list. This means that they will be able to send and receive Snaps, Chats, and Story posts from you again. Unblocking someone will also allow you to find them in search when you type their name and view their profile, if they are public. Any photos or messages that were sent during the time that the user was blocked won't be visible to either of you. Unblocking someone will not restore any past conversations. If you unblock someone and they don't re-add you, you won't be able to send them Snaps, Chats, or Story posts unless they add you as a friend first.
