How to Track the Location of Someone’s Snapchat Account?

Do you want to track your friend’s location on Snapchat (sneaky, aren’t you)? The easiest way to do that is through the Snap Map.

Do this to track the location of someone’s Snapchat account:

  1. Open Snapchat
  2. Go to your profile page
  3. Tap on the Snap Map
  4. Tap on the “Friends” button
  5. Select “Search
  6. Look for your friend on the Snap Map

Read below for a detailed guide on how to do this, including nice screenshots to help you creep (hehe) on your friend.

1. Tap on your Profile icon

Open Snapchat and look for the Profile button located in the top-left corner. Tap on it and proceed with the guide to see what’s next!

2. Select the Snap Map

Once you get to your profile page on Snapchat, find the Snap Map by scrolling down and then tap on “Enter” to open it (this is explained in the image above).

3. Select “Friends

Did you open the Snap Map? Then you may be able to find your friend right away on this map. But if you don’t, go to the “Friends” option in the bottom-right corner and select it.

4. Select “Search

Once you tap on “Friends“, a new menu will open up, showing you a list of all your Snapchat friends that you can locate on the Snap Map.

Select “Search” if your friend doesn’t appear on the Snap Map.

5. Search for your friend

Once you’re on this page, use the search bar at the top to find your friend (shown and highlighted in red in the image above). This will help you locate them on the Snap Map in an instant.

You can’t find your friend on the Snap Map, or it’s showing the wrong location? Check out this article I wrote on the subject.

My name is Alex and I have a knack for social media in all its shapes and forms. I’ve dealt with such things for quite some time and I noticed that many people have issues with social media and technicalities.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
