How to Know if a Snap is Sent only to You?

Generally, Snapchat does not have any special icon to appear on chat that could mean the snap is only sent to you. All of these emojis that appear on chat either means ‘Delivered’, ‘Pending’, or ‘Opened’.

But, you should know that for users, Snapchat credit score points for every snap that is sent & received and that score is visible on any Snapchat user’s profile.

  • You would notice that the snap score is increased a little bit by 1 or 2 points if that is sent only to you. However, if that increased over 100 after just you received the snap then that could mean it’s sent to many users.
  • Also, you can ask the person if that snap is only sent to you or not. Maybe he is making it fake but you can get a lot more time saved finding this if he states it is sent to many.
  • Look at the stories he posted on Snapchat and if the snap video or pictures are on the stories. If so, then you are not the only one who sees the snap.

So, just by looking at the score and the increase on it can mean a lot and if you’re spying on someone then this thing could tell you a lot like if the snap is only sent to you or many, as this will decide the score from low to high in increase.

If you want to know if a snap is only sent to you then you might be looking at the Snapchat score at first and check if that increased by a lot or a single point. Also, try checking the snap video or image if also uploaded to his story and then you could tell if that snap is private to you & that person only.

Now, you must understand the fact more deeply and should learn to compare the score and what does the story can tell you.

In this article, I will explain the whole thing that I found from my own research & experience on Snapchat that might be helpful in understanding the snap if it’s sent only to you or not.

Is there any way to tell if a snap sent only to you?

Absolutely, there is no way that Snapchat lets you know if someone just sent you a snap only or to many people. As the Snapchat emojis only tell when a snap is delivered, opened, or just being pending.

I just experienced too many things while I was researching on this topic to find out if the snap is only sent to me and all of these things I will explain in this article.

However, there are a few things that you can use to find out if the snap is sent only to you or not. For that, I am explaining the stories and the snap score feature of Snapchat and this can tell you if that’s only sent to you.

1. Look at the Snapscore if it Increases 1 point or more

Normally, Snapchat credits users whenever a snap is being sent or received. But in case if someone sends a snap to multiple friends and receives then the increase on the score will be a lot than one point.

As the Snapchat score get increases upon sending and receiving the snaps, you can identify from it either it is sent only to you or too many people.

And from this feature, you can easily tell by seeing at this score if it is increased by 1 point or many. Because, if the snap is sent only to you then the score might be increased by 1 point. However, in case it is sent to too many people then the increase in his Snapchat score will be a lot higher.

In order to find that do these following things:

  • First, check the score of the person before.
  • Then after receiving the score again to his profile and look for the score if increase by 1.
Snapchat score increase mean only you

Now, if it is too much increase in the score that means you’re not the only one who received the snap.

Note: This does not mean that if the snap score increased by many points then it is not being sent only to you but this method tells exactly if it is only sent to you and this works 100% in that regard.

2. Look for the same snap if is in Stories

Looking at the Snapchat story section you can tell a lot about the snap that is sent to you and if that is on his stories them that could mean something else.

You must check the story section for the person if the snap that is sent to you, is also in his stories or not. Sometimes people send their snaps that are already in their stories, so if you can find the same snap on the stories that equal to the same that the snap is viewable to many people, not only you.

Check for similar snaps on stories

All you have to do just go to your story section and find if there are any stories uploaded for that person and if you can find the same snap that is sent on your on the chat also in his stories then this could mean the snap is sent to multiple people, not just you.

3. Ask the person directly

Another technique is, directly to ask the person if he has sent the snap only to you or too many people.

Maybe you could not believe that what he states in his reply but you must definitely try if he has sent this only to you just by asking him and if he can prove that it is only sent to you then you’re good to go.

What data you can request from Snapchat?

You can request Snapchat to get your data downloaded from your Snapchat account.

Snapchat provides users to download data from the account that you can extract from your Snapchat account including the snaps, online activities, last seen time, and many more.

download info snap

In order to delete a download the data from a Snapchat account all you have to go to the Gear icon> Settings> My Data and download the data from there, and then you can see those on your desktop.

Check either it is a Private message or Streaks

You might be wondering if the snap you received is private or not. The only way that you can know whether it was a private message is by looking at the snap icon on your chat.

  • If it says streak, it got sent to other people as well.
  • If it says private, it means that the message was personally sent to you.
  • If the snap got drafted to multiple recipients, then it would have a streak symbol next to the Contact name of the Snapchat user.

To keep the streak activated, people need to send messages frequently to their Snapchat contacts every day. It increases the score as well while you’re sending a snap to multiple senders.

The Bottom Lines:

Although you can find this in three different ways and the increase in snap score really tells a lot. The article explains to identify whether the snap is only sent to you or multiple people. If you see the snap score is increased then that could tell either it is only you or too many people who received the snap.
