Snapchat: Here’s How to Block a Friend

Prevent someone from contacting you

Did you know that Snapchat allows you to block friends if you no longer want them to be able to see your Stories or Charms, or send you Snaps or chats? Our guide will show you how to block a friend in the Snapchat mobile application.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Snapchat app on iOS.

Step 1: On the Friends screen, tap and hold on the friend you wish to block.

Step 2: Tap “More.”

Step 3: Tap “Block.”

Step 4: Tap “Block” on the confirmation window that appears.

Note: You can also block someone by tapping on them on the Friends screen, tapping their profile picture in the top-left corner of the screen, tapping the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen and tapping “Block.”

If you ever want to unblock someone at a later time, tap your profile picture in the top-left corner of the screen to go to your profile. From there, tap the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen to go to the app’s Settings menu. Scroll down, tap “Blocked” and then tap the “x” next to the person you wish to unblock.
