Introduction to Snapchat Friend Removal
As a Snapchat user, you might have added friends over time, but there may come a point where you want to remove someone from your friends list. This comprehensive guide will walk you through everything you need to know about removing someone on Snapchat, answering questions like “Will they know?”, “Can they still message you?”, and “What happens to old snaps and messages?”. So, let’s get started.
What Happens When You Remove Someone on Snapchat
When you remove someone from your Snapchat friends list, they will no longer see your new snaps or messages. However, they can still view any messages and snaps that were sent prior to the removal. Additionally, their username will disappear from your contacts, and any pending snaps or messages they send to you will appear with a grey arrow, indicating that they are not your friend.
Will They Get a Notification?
No, Snapchat does not send a notification when you remove someone from your friends list. The person you removed will only know if they try to send you a snap or message, and they notice the grey arrow, or if they check your Snapchat score and find out that you are no longer friends.

Can They Still Message You?
After you remove someone from your Snapchat friends list, they can still send you snaps and messages, but they will appear as pending, and you won’t receive a notification for them. You can choose to ignore these messages or open them, but opening them will not change your friend status with that person.
What Happens to Old Snaps and Messages?
When you remove someone on Snapchat, the old snaps and messages that you exchanged with them will still be visible in your chat history. However, any unopened snaps sent to you by the removed friend will be lost, and you won’t be able to view them again.
Can You Re-add Them Without Them Knowing?
If you decide to re-add someone after removing them from your Snapchat friends list, they will not receive a notification about it. However, if they send you a snap or message, they will see that the arrow has changed from grey to a different color, indicating that you have become friends again.
How to Remove Someone on Snapchat
Removing someone from your Snapchat friends list is a simple process. Follow the steps below:
- Open the Snapchat app and navigate to the “Chat” screen.
- Find the chat with the person you want to remove and swipe right on their name to open their chat window.
- Tap on the person’s name or Bitmoji at the top left corner of the screen to open their profile.
- Scroll down and tap on the “More” button.
- Select “Remove Friend” from the options that appear.
- Confirm your decision by tapping “Remove” in the popup window.
Unfriending vs. Blocking on Snapchat
There are two ways to manage your Snapchat connections: unfriending and blocking. Here’s a comparison between the two:
- No notification is sent when you unfriend someone.
- The person can still send you snaps and messages, but they will appear as pending.
- You can re-add the person without them knowing.
- The person can still see your public stories.
- No notification is sent when you block someone.
- The person cannot send you snaps or messages.
- Both you and the blocked person will be removed from each other’s friends list.
- The person cannot see your public stories or search for your username.
To block someone on Snapchat, follow the same steps as removing a friend, but instead of selecting “Remove Friend,” choose “Block” from the “More” options menu.
In conclusion, removing someone from your Snapchat friends list is a straightforward process that doesn’t send a notification to the person you removed. They can still send you snaps and messages, but they will appear as pending, and you won’t receive notifications for them. You can re-add the person without them knowing, and they will only realize it if they see a change in the arrow color when sending you snaps or messages. Remember, unfriending and blocking serve different purposes, so choose the appropriate option based on your needs.
Armed with this knowledge, you can now confidently manage your Snapchat friends list and control who has access to your snaps and messages. Happy snapping!
