People who use social media platforms must know well about Snapchat. It is an app for contacting people via messages, voice, and video calls. You can even send photos or play games with your friends on Snapchat. This way, people make lots of friends on Snapchat.
But the problem is if you don’t like someone on your best friend list, what you should do. Sadly, unlike Facebook or Instagram, or other social media, Snapchat has no hiding option. So how can you do it?
This article discusses how to hide your best friends on Snapchat and some other details about Snapchat.
Let’s have a read.
What Does Snapchat Best Friend Mean?
Snapchat best friend refers to the person or persons with whom you chat and talk most of the time in a day.
When you start talking, texting, and chatting with someone on Snapchat for a long time for several days, Snapchat will automatically consider that person as your best friend.
And Snapchat then sends some emoji known as “best friend emoji” to them. And thus, you get your Snapchat best friends.
How to Make Best Friends on Snapchat?
Making best friends on Snapchat is very simple. But there is something important to remember. That is, you can never randomly choose someone as your best friend on Snapchat. No, that’s impossible.
If you want to make someone your Snapchat best friend, you can start a daily conversation with that person. You can chat with him/her, send them photos, snaps, videos, etc.
Also, you can contact them through voice calls and video calls. Even you have to continue this for at least one to two weeks. Meanwhile, observing your attachment with them, Snapchat will automatically grant them as your best friends by sending them some best friend emoji.
How to Hide Best Friends on Snapchat?
One of the most irritating things about using Snapchat is that it will not give you the freedom to do everything you want with your friend list on Snapchat. There are some restrictions. Hiding best friends on Snapchat is something like that.
If you want to hide your entire Snapchat friend list, then sorry, you can not go it.
Snapchat has not started this system yet. Maybe you will be able to do it soon when the app permits you. But for now, what you can only do is that you can remove someone from your friend list.
If you do not like someone to be on your friend list, you can remove him/her.
For that, you need to block that friend on Snapchat, and then you can unblock them quickly. Or, you can let Snapchat hide best friends in another way. That is by customizing best friend emojis for them.
For Android and iOS users, the process is slightly different. Here go the details:
Hide Best Friend on Snapchat for iOS Users
- First, you need to open up the Snapchat app on your device
- Login to the Snapchat account
- Go to the “Profile Bitmoji” option and click the “Setting” bar
- In settings, you will find the “Manage” option, select it
- Now, you have to go for “Friend Emojis” under the “Manage” option
- Finally, for hiding, select “Toggle.” Customize your emojis if you feel to do this.
Hide Best Friend on Snapchat for Android Users
- Open up the Snapchat app on your phone
- Log in to the app
- Go to the “Profile Bitmoji” option and click on the “Setting” bar
- Enter into “Settings,” scroll down for “ADDITIONAL SERVICES,” and click on “Customize Emoji.”
- Select “Super BFF,” “BFF” from a list there, and customize emoji for them.
Seems quite easy and simple, right?
How Long Does It Take to Get Someone Off Your Best Friend List?
You can neither remove best friends nor can delete best friends on Snapchat forever. You just let them off for the time being. There is no fixed time limit for getting someone off your best friend list.
Instead, it completely depends upon your attachment and interaction with them. Like, if you start conversing less with someone for more than two weeks, it means your attachment with that person is not so strong that s/he can become or stay as your best friend.
In contrast, if you barely react to a friend’s snaps or stories, chat less, Snapchat will gradually remove that friend from your best friend list. However, you can block anyone anytime on Snapchat if you want. And it needs not more than a few seconds.
What Happens When You Block Someone on Snapchat?
Now you might be thinking that if you block someone on Snapchat for hiding, what will happen when they get to know it. Don’t worry at all.
When you block someone on Snapchat, the person won’t get any notifications about it. So, they’ll not know this. But they’ll no longer be able to see your stories, your updates from the time you block them, that’s it.
Another thing is, you can unblock anyone immediately after blocking them. So, they’ll get blocked for just a few seconds, and hopefully, it will not create any major issues. But if you tell your friend about this thing, that’s entirely a different issue.
How to Unblock Someone on Snapchat?
It’s very simple. Follow the below steps to do that:
- Go to the “settings” option
- Scroll down until you find the “blocked” option
- Enter into it
- Find a list of people whom you have blocked
- Select the name of the person you want to unblock
- See at the right side of the name, and find the “X” icon
- Click on the icon, and your friend has become unblocked
As simple as it is.
