1. Snapchat Contact List

The first thing that you should do when you feel like you’ve been blocked is to look up for that person in your Snapchat contact list. If you don’t see the name of that person in your contact list, there are higher chances of you been blocked by that particular person. Also, if the person for whom you’re looking is socially interactive and mostly put up Snapchat stories then head to contacts and look for their stories. If you’re unable to see their stories then you might have been blocked!

To check out your contact list, tap on the “New Chat” button located on the top-right corner of your chat screen.

2. Search Username

The next possible way is to look up for their username. Go to the Camera viewfinder screen and hit the search box by typing the username of that person, and if you can’t find that person via their Snapchat username then it is because you’ve been blocked. If you’ve been blocked very recently then you might be able to find the username but when you’ll try to add them, you will get a message saying, “Sorry! Couldn’t find username”.

3. Send A Message

Our next try will be sending a message to that particular person to confirm if you’ve been blocked by him/her. If the contact you think has blocked you is still in your recent chats then, you can try sending them a message. If you’d been blocked then your message will not be sent and you will receive a message saying “could not send – Tap to retry”.

4. Use Another Account

There is another very basic way and that is to ask one of your friends to search for that username which you think blocked you with their account. And if you don’t want to ask someone else to do so then, you can create another account yourself and then go search for that person’s username. And if, that person shows up in your search result of secondary account but not in the search result of your primary account. Then, it is very clear that you have been blocked by your acquaintance.

5. Look For The On-Going Streaks

Lookup for the on-going Snap streaks between you and that particular person whom you think blocked you on Snapchat. If you succeed in finding the streaks then there are possible chances that you’re not blocked, and if unable to find out the streaks or see that the streaks have been broken abruptly, this means you might have been blocked by that person. Although, this can also happen if that person is unable to send you a snap, on time to keep the streaks going.

6. Use Some Other App To Find Out

You can use some other apps to contact that particular person who blocked you on Snapchat. Applications such as WhatsApp or Instagram can be used to reconnect with that person and then you can directly ask him/her if, they’ve blocked you or not. This is the easiest way to find out.
