A misconception is that if you’re about to send a snap to someone on Snapchat, you should be able to see their snap score.

Why Can I Snapchat Someone But Not See Their Score?

If you can Snapchat someone but not see their score, it either means that the person didn’t add you back, or they removed you as a friend.

The snap score is only shown if both parties added each other as a friend.

As long as one person didn’t add the other as a friend on Snapchat, both parties won’t be able to see each other’s score.

You can only see someone’s Snapchat score if you’re friends with them.

In addition, they must not have removed or blocked you.

If they removed you as a friend, you won’t be able to see their score because Snapchat will automatically hide it from you.

Similarly, if someone were to block you on Snapchat, you will automatically be removed as a friend, and their profile will be hidden from you.

Here are all of the reasons in detail.

1. They didn’t add you back

The first reason why you can Snapchat someone but not see their score is because the person didn’t add you back as a friend.

The person’s snap score will be hidden from you if they didn’t add you back on Snapchat.

If the person didn’t add you back, you won’t be able to see their Snapchat score.

Even if you are able to send snaps to them, their snap score will be hidden from you unless they add you back.

Additionally, there will be a grey arrow/chat box that says “pending” beside it.

That’s when you’ll know that they didn’t add you.

Let’s say that you’ve recently added someone on Snapchat and you sent a snap to them.

If they didn’t add you back, their snap score will not be listed under their username.

However, if they added you back, their snap score will be shown on their profile.

So, if you want to be able to see the person’s score, you need to wait for them to add you back on Snapchat.

Otherwise, it’ll be hidden for as long as they don’t.

2. They removed you as a friend

If the person removed you as a friend, you won’t be able to see their Snapchat score.

When someone removes you as a friend on Snapchat, their Snapchat score will be hidden from you.

This is a common reason why can’t see their score.

This is one of the more common reasons why you can Snapchat (send snaps to) someone but not see their score.

A misconception is that when someone deletes you, you won’t be able to send them snaps.

If someone deletes you, you will still be able to send them snaps.

However, the status of the snaps that you’ve sent won’t be shown as “delivered”.

In addition, there won’t be a blue arrow under their username.

Instead, there will be a grey arrow/chat box with a “pending” status beside it.

This signifies that the person has either removed you on Snapchat, unfollowed you, or didn’t add you back in the first place.

In order for you to see their snap score, the person needs to add you back on Snapchat.

Otherwise, it will be hidden from you.

If I’m blocked on Snapchat can I still see their score?

If I'm blocked on Snapchat can I still see their score?

No. If you’re blocked on Snapchat, you will not be able to see the person’s score.

In fact, you won’t be able to find their profile on Snapchat at all.

If someone blocked you on Snapchat, their profile will be hidden from you.

In other words, you won’t be able to find them on Snapchat.

When someone blocks you on Snapchat, their profile will be hidden from you.

If you were to search for them on Snapchat, their profile won’t show up on the search results.

Even if you were to search for their exact username, you won’t be able to find them on Snapchat.

To prove this theory, I’ve tested this out using two separate Snapchat accounts.

  1. I used two accounts to add each other.
  2. Then, I blocked the second account with the first account.
  3. When I searched for the exact username of the first account using the second account, it did not appear on the search results.

Conclusively, when someone blocks you on Snapchat, you won’t be able to find them on Snapchat.

Your previous messages and snaps with them will also be deleted.

Can you see someone’s Snapchat score if you’re not friends?

Snapchat accept friend request

You cannot see someone’s Snapchat score if you’re not friends.

If someone removed you as a friend or didn’t add you back, their score will be hidden from you.

The Snapchat score will only be visible if both users added each other as friends.

In order for you to see someone’s score, both parties need to add each other on Snapchat.

Otherwise, the score will be hidden.

Even if you’ve added someone as a friend, you won’t be able to see their score until they add you back.

Once both parties added each other back, you will be able to see the person’s score by visiting their profile.

The score will be listed under the person’s username on their profile.

Can others see your Snapchat score?

Who can see your snap score

Only your friends can see your Snapchat score (if both parties added each other).

People who you’re not friends with on Snapchat won’t be able to see your score.

Your Snapchat score is only visible to your friends.

A common misconception is that everyone can see your score on Snapchat.

This is not true as your score is not publicly displayed.

Another misconception is that anyone can see your score once they’ve added you as a friend.

Again, this is not true as you’ll only be able to see someone’s score if you added them and they accepted it.

If you rejected their friend request, your Snapchat score will be hidden from them.

Conclusion

Snapchat scores can be pretty confusing for new users, and even those who’ve been using Snapchat for a while.

The Snapchat Help Center does not provide explicit information about who can see your score as well, so it doesn’t help much.

In this article, you’ve learned why you can send snaps to someone but can’t see their score.

It also answers frequently asked questions.

In a nutshell, only those who’ve added you on Snapchat (and that you’ve accepted) can see your Snapchat score.

If you didn’t accept someone’s friend request, they won’t be able to see your score (even if they have you added).
