With more than one billion downloads on the Google Play Store, Snapchat has garnered a large audience of which the majority are millennials.
And truth be told, our generation tends to get into a lot of fights whether it is real or virtual. Similar to other social media apps, Snapchat allows you to block people on the platform whom you don’t want to entertain.
But what if you blocked a friend on Snapchat, on the spur of the moment, and now you want to unlock them?
The bad blood between you and your friend has probably been dealt with and you now find no problem in unblocking your friend on Snapchat. Here’s how to unblock someone on Snapchat
How To Unblock Someone On Snapchat
- Open the Snapchat app on your phone. Log in to the app if you have logged out previously.
- Tap on your Bitmoji icon or username in the top left corner of the screen
- Now tap on the Settings icon (cog-wheel) in the top right corner of the screen
- Scroll to the bottom and tap on the Blocked option in the Account Actions category
- You can see the list of people you have blocked on the Snapchat app.
- Now click on the X icon beside a username.
- Tap on Yes in the confirmation box to unblock the user.

How do you know if someone has blocked you on Snapchat?
You can find out if someone has blocked you on Snapchat by searching their username from any other Snapchat account.

All you can do is ask the person to resend the texts and snaps that you missed while the person was blocked on Snapchat.
Does blocking someone on Snapchat delete unopened snaps?
If you block someone before the person opens the snap you don’t want them to see, your conversation will disappear from their profile, along with the snap.
However, the snap and the conversation will still appear on your account.
