What Does It Mean When I Cannot See Someone’s Snapchat Score?

Back on August 25th, 2015 we started the discussion about not being able to see someone’s Snapchat score. Now, in December 2019 and heading into 2020 there are still millions of Snapchat users that want to know why they saw someone’s Snapchat score just yesterday but can’t see it today. Well, if you cannot see someone’s Snapchat score, it means they do not follow your or you are not their friend. You can read our original discussion below.

Snapchat answers this question about three times a day on their Support Twitter account. If you cannot see someone’s Snapchat score it almost always means that person has yet to add you as a friend. There are other issues that are discussed below.

When you cannot see someone’s Snapchat score it likely means they have not added you as a friend or they have blocked you. By going to your friends list you will be able to click on a Snapchat user and see the score of that user if they are friends with you. If they are a celebrity or company that has a public account you will be able to see their total score but will not see a specific name in which you have them in your phone.

So, if you think someone has deleted you or unfollowed you on Snapchat a quick way to figure it out is to see if you can see their Snapchat score. If you cannot see their Snapchat score you know they are no longer your friend on Snapchat. More importantly, they may not be your friend in real life. You might want to pick up the phone and give them a call to see exactly what is going on in terms of your relationship. I know this is unusual but this is the way we used to communicate; actually talking and calling someone with a telephone.

UPDATE: Snapchat has confirmed that is someone has not added you or followed you back, you cannot see their Snapchat score. If you could see their score before and you cannot see it now they deleted you as a friend. I know this can cause all kinds of drama; especially when it comes to boyfriends and girlfriends. The best way to avoid the drama is to not look at that particular user. If you cannot see their Snapchat score you may want to simply delete them off Snapchat.

With all the relationship drama that is caused by Snapchat it will be interesting to see if middle school, high school and college students start to use Snapchat in a different way. Personally, I stopped looking at Snapchat scores because all it did was make me wonder what that person was doing. How many dirty snaps is he or she sending with a score of 100,000? These are thoughts I simply do not want in my head.

Now that Snapchat has updated numerous times in the last several years, it would not surprise us to see an update in which users can hide their Snapchat score from all people, select people or those they simply do not like. It will be interesting to see if Snapchat updates this feature with the December 2017 major update that is expected.

Guys it’s because their profile is set to public or “anyone can send me snaps” and that’s why you can see their profile but I do believe if u can’t see there score they have deleted you without a doubt!

Kylie

My profile is private so you have to be my friend to view my story. There are a few people that have viewed my story, but their score does not show up… so I don’t believe this article either. Snapchat is glitchy.

No way this article is 100% accurate because I had a friend who one day I couldn’t see their score then the next day I could but they didn’t reappear on the ” “added me” and they still watch my stories, and still get the golden heart sometimes, so yeah their are exceptions without a doubt.

I can’t see my friends score or view their story. They also don’t pop up on my recents or best friends list but we snapchat each other all the time. I had them re add me back just to make sure they added me and everything is still the same.

So I blocked a person on snapchat and I just unblocked them and re-accepted their friend request. I can’t see this persons score, but they have re-appeared in my snapchat feed and friends list. If I re-accepted their friend request shouldn’t their score still be there?

I didn’t delete this person but one day it just suddenly dissapeared from my friendlist and I saw them on my “added me” list. Does it mean that the person deleted me from their snapchat friendlist?

[…] you are the one that wants to hide your Snapchat score the best way to do it is to just unfriend the person you are concerned […]

I couldn’t see my friends score so I thought he deleted me, so I deleted him back and now he still shows up on my “Added Me” friends list. What does that mean? that his privacy settings are just set differently or had he just blocked me from his story or blocked me in general?

Someone added me back tonight on snapchat but I still can’t see their snap score. I really don’t get it! Why would they add me back if I still can’t see their score? I never added them in the first place since he unfriended me the first time yesterday..

Well, I am most definitely confused after reading the comments, and have not yet found a solution to my problem. I sent a message to a friend and they haven’t seen it yet but it definitely sent. I cannot though see their snap score. Usually if they aren’t my friend it will turn grey saying you have to wait till they add you back, or if they blocked me it will say message cannot be sent. I still can’t view their snap score. Any help?

I have googled this question everywhere and cannot find an answer. I too suddenly cannot see my friends score although they still appear under my friends list. Its possible he unfriended me but since i did not unfriend him may explain why i cannot see his score. My question is it possible i cannot see his score because he deleted snapchat account? Nowhere does it tell me if a friends score still reflects after deleting the app

Omg I’m so confused. Well anyways me and this guy were talking and then we got in a fight and before I could see his snapchat score but now I can’t. I assumed he unadded me then I unadded him back just to be fair ( this was yesterday ). So today I woke up and check my ‘added me’ list and there he is! So I added him back and I STILL can’t see his score. I’m so confusdd

just try sending them a snap.. if it’s pending, that means he/she deleted or havent added you back..

Clare

Tried this. Said snap pending. A couple of hours later my friend had opened and read it. But I still can’t see her score or story?Seems odd to add me read message then delete me again?!

JC

If you can’t see their score when you used to be able to they deleted you. If they have the settings so that anyone can contact them you can still send them snaps and they can still see the snaps that you sent them and they can reply back to you. If they deleted you from their friend’s list you won’t be able to view their story. If you want to make sure only friends can see your story and your snaps switch privacy to friends only.

Clare
Guest

I noticed I couldn’t see my friends score or story. Didn’t think much of it til I sent snap and it said pending. I assumed I was Unfriended but then she read the message! Seems an awful lot of trouble to go to to unfriend me then add me back just to read the message and then unfriend me again? We haven’t fallen out and she’s still my friend on Facebook, Skype, Twitter…. So what’s going on? I still can’t see her score or story

Ok so I noticed something weird last night. I couldn’t see my mates snapchat score. But some how she’s still posting snaps that I can see and she’s replying to my messages normally. I asked her if she blocked me and she seemed dumbfounded. We did get into a bit of an argument the other day, but my question to you is, why can’t I see her snapchat score?

So, I just recently added my bf (was my ex) on snapchat an he added me back. (Shows that he added me) however, I cannot see his snapcht score, which I don’t really are tbh. The problem is I cannot see his snapcht stories, he does not appear in my feed. He can see me story which is weird. So whts up? We even unfollowed to follow each other again to see if it works but still can’t see his story.

I noticed whenever my friends go into airplane mode their score disappears. While traveling I thought my brother deleted me once because his score was gone but turns out he was just in airplane mode and his score reappeared. I have also read that a lot of people go into airplane mode to view others stories unnoticed as well as take screenshots of snaps without the user who sent them knowing so this could be the case as well. So careful snapping!

Okay so I’m pretty sure someone either deleted me or unfollowed me on sc but for some reason, all of a sudden I can see their story again. What does that mean? I clicked on their account but it doesn’t show their sc score so I don’t understand how all of a sudden I can see their sc score.

Hello, just read your article…I have a question on this subject. If I can’t see their score, clearly meaning they have removed me as a friend. Why do they still appear on my contact list and can they still receive a message from me?

sara
Guest
sara

I also have a friend who’s score I can no longer see…they still show on my friends list, they said they have not deleted me, and they still receive my messages and can reply to them as well. So I can’t say I totally agree with the no score meaning you have been deleted or blocked…is there a way to hide it without deleting someone?

Cerian

Hey. I know it’s late but you have to tweak your settings so that everyone can see your story and everyone can send you snaps, even if you haven’t accepted their frend request.

They still appear on your list because you still have them as a friend and no they won’t receive your message unless they’ve added you back.

Kymberli

I have someone who I can’t see their snaps so I deleted them. Then as soon as I do I get the message that they “added me back” so I checked them off but when I go to check their followers number it’s not their. What the hell are they my friend or not???

They stay on your contact list because you have not deleted them however if you send something to them they will not receive it on your phone it will say pending

My problem is that I can’t see the score, and understandably, cannot see the stories. So why is it that the user’s story shows up sometimes. Friends have this user added and the user uploads rather frequently so I don’t understand why this has been happening . Have I been removed as a friend? And if so why do they pop up sometimes if that were the case?

Cailtin
Guest

It doesn’t always mean you’ve been removed. I don’t know what the reason, but I couldn’t see some of my friends scores, but I could still see their stories so I was obviously still their friend.

Same here. A former girlfriend (I guess) who we had a bad part was on my snap and I’m assuming she blocked me after Bc I couldn’t see her score…but the last two days it’s popped up “____ has added you as a friend”…i see a couple of my story pics have been viewed, then poof…gone again…

So I can’t see this persons snap score anymore. I know he had me blocked but last night when I went to go to add friends and he was there like always when I hit add friend to see if he unblocked me it went through and added him. We know have the yellow hearty next to our names again like it was before he blocked me. But I still can’t see his snap score he’s at the top of my friends list with heart…

I have a totally different problem. A friend I am active a lot with on Snapchat with has been removed from my friends list. I couldn’t see his story or anything. When I went to look at my friends list he was gone. I did a search for his Snapchat user name and it came up giving me the option to add him again. What does this mean? Did he remove me and if he did then how come other people who say they got unfriended still have the person on their friends list but without being able to see… Read more »
