Snapchat: How to unblock someone
Snapchat blocks people so you cannot search for their identities and unblock them. Instead, use the Snapchat settings to access your blocked users list. Here’s how.
- Open Snapchat, and tap the Bitmoji username or URL in the upper-left corner.
- To access Settings, tap the gear icon at the upper-right corner.
- Swipe up to view the Account Activities section. Tap Blocked.
- A list of blocked usernames will appear. To unblock a person, tap the X icon to the right.
- Snapchat asks you to confirm. To unblock someone, tap Yes.
- Unblocking someone removes their username from your Blocked List.
How to Unblock Someone
The person who has been blocked is removed from your Friends List and all contact between them is cut off. You’ll need to search for the friend to unblock them and then add them back.
Next, tap and add below the profile picture. If your friend is not a public user, they will need to add you back.
