Step 1: Open ‘Snapchat’ & Go to your ‘Profile page’

After getting into your account, next, you have to go to your ‘Profile’ page.

Go to your ‘Profile page on snapchat

This click will take you to your “profile” page. 

Step 2: Tap on ‘Settings’ > ‘Contact Me’

On the ‘Profile’ page, the same profile picture/Avatar you will appear in the upper-middle section of the screen.

Here, you will see two options, first is > “Everyone”, which means that everyone in the Snapchat world can check your snap score, send a snap, messages, make calls, etc. This basically means, your Snapchat account is publicly open for any and everyone. And the second is > “My Friends”, which means that only the people who are connected to you on Snapchat, i.e., your Snapchat friends, can check your snap score, send a snap, make calls, and see your activity. No one other than your friends will be having the access to your account details.

Hence, you have to select the second option, that is, “My Friends”, to hide your snap score from the public (= Everyone). 

Step 4: Score is Now Hidden

Now, your snap score won’t be visible to the public. It will be displayed only to the people who are your friends on Snapchat. 

Rest nobody can see your snap score. If anybody wants to see your snap score, then first they have to send you a friend request or ‘Add’ you as a friend on Snapchat and when you will accept their friend request or “Add’ them back as a friend, then only he/she will be able to check the snap score. 

How to Hide your Snapchat Score from Friends or a Specific Friend?

There is only one and only one method to hide your Snapchat score from your friends or specific person on Snapchat, that is, either ‘Remove’ as your friend or ‘Block’ from your Snapchat. 

Other than this, there is no alternate way to hide the snap score and the other activities from the people who are connected with you. 

Let’s walk through the steps to “Remove” or “Block” someone on Snapchat:

Step 1: Open Snapchat & Go to profile

Firstly, open your Snapchat account and go to the “profile” page. 


To go on the “Profile” page, click on the profile picture, that is, the “Avatar” icon. You will find your Snapchat Avatar icon in the upper left corner of the camera screen. 

Click on it and you will be on the “Profile” page. 

Step 2: Tap on ‘My Friends’

Scroll down your ‘Profile’, page a bit and stop at the ‘Friends’ section. Under this section, you will find the option, > “My Friends”.

Inside the “My Friends” option you will get the list of all your friends on Snapchat. This my friend’s list will help you find the person your want to hide your snap score. 

Hence, tap on > “My Friends” and the list with all the names will appear on the screen. 

Step 3: Tap & hold on to the name of that person

Now, on the “My Friends” tab, tap on the ‘search’ bar given at the top of the screen and type the name of the person you want to remove as your friend or block from your account.

You can also find him on the list. But for this, you have to go through the list from top to end, which is quite annoying. So better, you type the name and find that person. 

Once you find that person’s name in the search result or list, tap and hold his/her name. 

Step 4: Choose ‘Remove friend’ or ‘Block’

When you will press and hold on the name of a person, a list will come up on the screen from the bottom. 

From the list, tap on “More” and then choose > “Remove Friend” or “Block”, according to your decision. 

tap on More option on snapchat

If you choose “Remove Friend”, then that person will be removed from your friend list and will no longer see your stuff on Snapchat. Whereas if you choose, “Block”, then that person will be deleted from your Snapchat account and would not find your Snapchat account. 

Remove Friend on snapchat

Select anyone, and tap on it. A warning/confirmation notification will appear on the screen. Select accordingly and you are done. 

From then, that person won’t be able to see your snap score anymore. 

The Bottom Lines:

Hiding snap score from the public is a very simple task to do and also a very easy decision to make. 

Next, comes hiding from a specific friend or friends. So, in this case, it is recommended to ‘Remove’ that person as a friend, because blocking someone should also be the last option in any scenario.
