How to Tell If Someone Has Two Snapchat Accounts?

Do you suspect your friend has two Snapchat accounts and want to make sure? You’ve come to the right person!

I have a few aces up my sleeve to help you figure out if your friend is hiding another Snapchat account. Try these solutions:

  1. Block your friend’s main account and search the “Quick Add” list for their account(s)
  2. Search for their username on Snapchat
  3. Use Google to find their other account
  4. Check their other social media accounts for a secondary Snapchat account
  5. Ask your friend directly

This shouldn’t take more than a few minutes, so follow the guide below to finish faster. You’ll find your friend’s secondary Snapchat account in no time!

Block Your Friend and Search the “Quick Add” List

Let me explain how this works. The idea is that before you block your friend on Snapchat, you have to add their phone number to your phone plan.

1. Select your friend’s chat

Open Snapchat, log in if necessary, and find the chat with your friend. Tap on their chat to open a new chat window with them. You’ll need that to block them.

2. Tap on your friend’s profile picture

Once you open a chat with your friend, you must go to their profile page. To do that, tap on their profile picture in the chat window’s top left corner.

You can also tap on their profile name to open their profile page.

3. Tap on the three-dot icon

After you open your friend’s profile page, you should tap on the three-dot icon in the top right corner. This will open the settings window for your friendship with that person.

4. Select “Manage Friendship

Once you tap on the three-dot icon on that person’s profile page, this page will open up. You’ll see multiple options here, including “Chat settings“, “Story settings“, “Manage friendship“, and more.

Select “Manage Friendship” to proceed with the guide.

5. Select “Block

After you select “Manage Friendship“, a new window will open. You should see four options here – “Report“, “Block“, “Remove Friend“, and “Edit Name“.

Select “Block” and confirm when Snapchat asks you if you’re sure about this.

6. Tap on the “Search” icon

Now that you’ve blocked your friend, it’s time to look for their other accounts. Make sure you have your friend’s phone number on your plan first.

Then, return to Snapchat and tap on the “Search” icon next to your profile picture in the top left corner.

7. Select “View More

After you tap on the search icon, you should see the “Quick Add” section at the top of the page. This list contains friend recommendations based on several factors like:

  • Mutual friends
  • Location
  • Your phone agenda
  • Interests

To see more recommendations, tap on “View More“. This will open a bigger list of recommended friends. Now, you should find your friend’s other account.

Look for an account with a similar Bitmoji or username. You should recognize your friend’s other account based on the available details, Bitmoji, and other information.

Search for a Similar on Snapchat

Another way of finding out if your friend has two Snapchat accounts is to search for their name on Snapchat. They’ll use the same name as their previous account but a different username.

Snapchat doesn’t allow a username to be used by two people or two accounts. However, your friend is probably using a similar username for his second account.

If you find someone with a very similar username to your friend, it’s their secondary account. Here’s how to search for your friend on Snapchat:

1. Tap on the “Add Friend” icon

With Snapchat in the “Chat” section, look in the top right corner for the “Add friend” icon. It looks like a silhouette with a + next to it. Tap on it and continue with the guide.

2. Search for your friend’s name

After you select the “Add friend” icon, you’ll be taken to a new window with friend recommendations. To narrow down the search, type in your friend’s name.

Scroll through the list and look for a username similar to your friend’s original username. It could be your friend’s secondary account if you find it.

If you don’t find one, then maybe your friend doesn’t have a secondary account, or they used a different name and username for it.

Use Google to Find Their Other Account

I bet you didn’t think you could use Google to find your friend’s secondary Snapchat account. It’s possible, though it’s not a foolproof method.

Google searches across the entire internet, including social media platforms like Snapchat. Here’s how to find your friend on Snapchat with Google:

Open Google and search for your friend’s name

Open Google and search for your friend’s name

You should search for something like “[friend’s name] Snapchat” or “[friend’s name] Snapchat Chicago” or another location that your friend is using.

Try to narrow down the search with any key information you know about your friend. The location is one of the best identifiers for Snapchat users.

If you see a username that you believe belongs to your friend, then chances are it belongs to them, and it’s a secondary account.

Check Their Other Social Media Accounts for a Snapchat Account

This solution is a hit-and-miss because your friend might not have other social media accounts or are not active on them.

But if they are, then one of their Bios on other social media accounts might include their secondary Snapchat account.

Try looking on Twitter or Instagram for this information. As I said, you may not find anything, especially if your friend doesn’t use other social media too often.

If so, ignore this step and try the other solutions on this list. You can also try looking for posts about social media on their other accounts.

They may have posted their other Snapchat account in a comment when talking to someone else.

Ask Your Friend Directly

If you can’t find your friend’s secondary Snapchat account or are not even sure there is one, why don’t you ask them directly?

You don’t have to confront them directly if you don’t feel like it. You can be elusive and say something like, “Hey, here’s something funny. I’ve found a Snapchat account that looks like yours, Bitmoji and all. Is this yours, lol?

Even if it doesn’t belong to them, they may open up and tell you their real secondary account to show that the account you’re talking about isn’t theirs.

If they don’t open up, you can try using reverse psychology to convince them to reveal their secondary Snapchat account.

The worst (or best) scenario is they tell you they don’t even have a secondary Snapchat account. It might be a lie, but confirmation is better than having nothing.

Conclusion

To summarize, there’s no foolproof method of knowing if your friend has another Snapchat account other than asking them directly.

Try seeing if your friend is less active on their Snapchat account and brainstorm reasons for this. What are they doing with their time?

If you know them closely and haven’t taken on any hobby, they might’ve created a secondary Snapchat account.

In any case, here are the best ways you can find out if your friend has another Snapchat account:

  • Block your friend’s main account and search the “Quick Add” list for their account(s)
  • Search for their username on Snapchat
  • Use Google to find their other account
  • Check their other social media accounts for a secondary Snapchat account
  • Ask your friend directly
