How to Hide Your Snapchat Score?

Wanna hide your Snapchat Score so no one can see how popular you really are? Sure, you can do that in one of two ways:

  • Remove your friend
  • Block your friend

Yep, you actually can’t hide your Snapchat Score from everyone as there is no feature for this. However, your Snapscore is automatically hidden from non-friends or people you block.

Hence the two solutions above.

But enough about that. Let’s get down to business – check my guide below and I’ll guide you step-by-step on how to do this!

Summary: Want to hide your Snapchat Score so no one can see how popular you are?

Unfortunately, there's no option to hide your Snapchat Score from everyone. However, your Snapscore is automatically hidden from non-friends and blocked users.

This article offers a step-by-step guide on how to remove or block a friend on Snapchat to keep your Snapscore hidden. It's super easy!

How to Hide Your Snapchat Score?

Who Can See Your Snapchat Score?

All your friends can see your Snapchat score. If they visit your profile, they’ll see the Snapscore right below your username and Bitmoji.

However, if the other person has sent you a friend request but you didn’t accept it, they can’t see your Snapscore.

It’s the same for you. You can’t see someone else’s score unless the other person has accepted your friend request.

How Can You Hide Your Snapchat Score?

There are two ways you can hide your Snapchat score – either you block the other person or remove them as friends.

The only requirement for a person to see your snap score is to be mutual friends with you. And, of course, to not be blocked. If you block them, your snap score becomes invisible to them.

Your Privacy settings allow you to customize your interaction with people on Snapchat.

For instance, you can set who gets to send you snaps, call you, or see your story.

So, we have two methods for hiding your Snapchat score from someone else:

1. Remove them as a friend

The first method is removing that person as a friend on Snapchat.

Begin by opening Snapchat and going to the “Chats” (see the image below). Tap the icon and see what’s next (not much):

Once you get to the “Chats” page, you’ll see a list of all the friend’s you’ve talked to on Snapchat (and not only). Select the friend you want to block/remove (tap their name).

This will take you to their profile page on Snapchat. Look for the three-line icon in the top-right corner and give it a soft tap.

That will open a settings page where you’ll need to select “Remove Friend” (highlighted in the picture above). Then, confirm if Snapchat asks you to.

That’s all – your friend won’t be able to see your Snap Score anymore. Instead, they’ll have to send you another friend request (which you need to accept).

2. Block the user

The second method of hiding your Snapchat score from someone else is blocking them. Unlike friend removal, blocking someone means they can’t even find your Snapchat account anymore.

They’ll need another account to find you on Snapchat. So, blocking someone hides your Snapchat score from them and your entire account.

To block another user go to Chats and that person’s profile (just like before).

Block the user
Block the user

Tap the same three-dot icon, and the same menu appears. Next to the “Remove Friend” option that you used earlier, you’ll see the “Block” icon. Give that a tap!

Now that your friend is blocked, they won’t see your Snap Score anymore, among other things. And that’s what you wanted, right?

Why Can’t You See Someone’s Snapscore All of a Sudden?

Most likely, they’ve removed you from their friend list. Remember that you can see each other’s Snapscore if you’re mutual friends on Snapchat.

If either of you removes the other from their friend list, neither can see the other’s Snapscore.

Even if you’re not at fault and didn’t remove them from your friend list.

If you check their names in Chats, you’ll know if someone has removed you as a friend from Snapchat.

If their status is “Pending,” it means they removed you as a friend.

So, that’s about all I can say about this. I hope I’ve been able to help you and if you’re still having issues, let me know in the comments below!

Can you build a fake Snapscore?

Yes, you can. Many Snapchatters do that.
You can do it too! Add many celebrities as friends and send them Snaps.

Send the same snap to multiple people simultaneously, and you’ll build a Snap Streak immediately.

They’ll eventually remove you from their friend lists, but you’ll have sent a few dozen snaps already.

The “Last Snap” feature allows you to send snaps to the same list of people as last time.

This will cut away the extra time necessary to make a list of the people you send snaps to.

If you don’t want to bother other people with this, you can create another account and add yourself on Snapchat.

Send yourself snaps and build an unending Snap Streak!

Why is my friend’s Snapscore not going up?

The simplest explanation is that they haven’t sent any snaps recently. Perhaps they’re only chatting, and they haven’t sent any snaps.

Chats don’t count towards your Snapscore!

Maybe the other user isn’t using Snapchat as often, or they’ve decided to take a break.

Sometimes, the other person might have blocked you, and the app glitches out.

Instead of not finding their account anymore, you can still see their profile, but everything is frozen.

A quick reinstallation of Snapchat should solve this problem.
