If you suspect that a friend of yours has blocked you on Snapchat then the quickest way to verify it is to search their Snapchat username manually.

  • You can learn to create a new Snapchat account using this official link. After creating a new account, search for the username that you wish to check.
  • If you can see the profile in the search results here then it indicates that your friend has blocked you on your original Snapchat profile.
  • Alternatively, you can ask a friend to search for the suspected Snapchat user to verify if the profile exists on Snapchat.
  • If your friend can see the profile and you can't, then it will clearly indicate that you've been blocked by the suspected Snapchat user.

  • Open Snapchat on your device and tap on the Friends icon present at the bottom.
  • Find and locate the Friends section at the top. All new stories from your Snapchat friends will appear here.
  • If you are blocked/removed as a friend on Snapchat, then you will not be able to view his stories in this stories section.
