Why Isn’t Someone’s Snapchat Map Location Updating?

Every single weekend, millions of Snapchat users are checking up on each other. Whether you are trying to figure out where your boyfriend or girlfriend is or simply want to know where your crush is at, Snapchat is a great way to keep tabs on them. The new Snapchat map will allow you to see where they are at all times – if they have their location on.

So, why is it the case that sometimes a person’s location is not updating. When looking at the Snapchat Map it may say that that particular user’s location was updated 30 minutes ago. Why is it taking so long to update again? A lot can happen in 30 minutes!

We have even noticed this time can get up to a full hour. Do you know what can happen in an hour? Does this mean that person is no longer sharing their location with you? Have they hidden their location with just you and not all their other friends? Have they gone into ghost mode?

From our understanding, when someone is moving around a lot and doesn’t have a strong connection, it takes awhile for the Snapchat app to update their location. It may also be the case that they have not opened their Snapchat app or have turned their phone off. They may have even deleted Snapchat for the night so you cannot keep up with them.

If you are wondering why someone’s location has not updated for a certain amount of time, it likely has to do with the fact that they are not using Snapchat that particular night, have turned their phone off or have stopped sharing their location with you.

That means they turned off their location on the phone settings.

Does this mean no one else can see their location either?

I’m confused bc it says their location hasn’t updated in 6 hrs but it also says that they have watched my snaps from 1 hr ago. Why might this be?
