If you’ve been unfriended by someone on Snapchat but still want to message them, you can.
But, your messages are going to remain as ‘pending’ and they’ll not see them unless they add you back as a friend.
So, you can still message someone who has blocked you on Snapchat, but be prepared for the fact that they might never see the messages!
If Someone Unfriended You on Snapchat Can You Still Message Them?
There is often some confusion on Snapchat around whether or not you’ve been unfriended by someone and if they’re getting your snaps.
The first thing you need to do is try and figure out if someone has actually unfriended you or blocked you.
If you’re wondering if someone unfriended you on Snapchat, there are a few things to look for.
If you don’t see their username when you go to search for them, that’s a sign they may have unfriended you.
Another way to tell is if you can still see their name in your friend list.
If you’re still not sure, try sending them a snap.
If it says they’re “added” but their name doesn’t appear in the chat screen, that means they’ve unfriended you.
If you want to message someone who has unfriended you on Snapchat, you can.
However, your messages will go through as ‘pending’ and the person you’re messaging will not be notified about them unless they add you back as a friend.
So, technically, you can message someone who has unfriended you on Snapchat, but there’s really no point.
Unless that is, they have a history of adding and removing you as a friend and you think they’ll be back!
Does Blocking Someone on Snapchat Stop Them Messaging You?
Blocking someone on Snapchat completely stops them from being able to message you.
So, if you’re worried about someone constantly messaging you or sending you snaps, blocking them is the best way to stop that.
Once you’ve blocked someone on Snapchat, they’ll no longer be able to send you messages so they’ll know for sure they’ve been blocked.
This is a more effective – and more obvious – way of telling someone you don’t want to interact with them on Snapchat.
When You Block Someone on Snapchat Do the Messages Delete?
Yes, when you block someone on Snapchat all of the messages between you and that person are deleted.
This is a good thing because it means you don’t have to see any of their messages and you can be sure they won’t be able to message you again.
It’s also worth noting that when you block someone on Snapchat, they won’t be able to see any of your snaps or stories.
So, if you’re worried about someone seeing your snaps, blocking them is the best way to make sure they can’t.
What Does ‘Remove Friend’ Do on Snapchat?
If you remove a friend on Snapchat, it means you are unfriending them and they will no longer be able to see any of your snaps or stories.
They also won’t be able to message you and you won’t be able to message them.
If you remove a friend on Snapchat, it’s effectively the same as if you had blocked them.
The differences are that they won’t be notified that you’ve removed them as a friend and your chat logs with them will not be deleted.
If You Unblock Someone on Snapchat Will They Know?
Snapchat does not send someone a notification when you unblock them.
So, if you’re wondering if someone knows you’ve unblocked them on Snapchat, the answer is going to be no, unless they figure it out or you tell them.
If you want to be sure they know you’ve unblocked them, the best thing to do is send them a snap or message after you’ve done it.
This way, they’ll definitely know you’ve unblocked them and they can decide if they want to add you back as a friend.
I hope this information has helped you better understand how Snapchat works and what you can do if someone has unfriended, blocked you, etc!
