How To Stop Being Added To Snapchat Groups

✎ Key Takes

» To remove someone from the Snapchat group, you can do that by getting into the group page and then blocking.
» The other way is to create a new group on Snapchat by adding all the members and excluding the one you wanted to remove, you can leave the old group after being added to the new one.
» Although all the members can add any new member and change & modify group notification settings, there’s the problem that no existing member can directly remove another existing member.

How To Stop Being Added To Snapchat Groups:

You can try the following methods below to stop being added to Snapchat groups:

1. Hide From Quick Add

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: First of all, open your Snapchat profile, and click on your avatar icon from the top left corner.


Step 2: Now click on the Settings icon from the top right corner, which will redirect to a new screen.


Step 3: Then, scroll down and click on the See Me in Quick Add option, which comes under PRIVACY CONTROL, and turn off the toggle option, and you will stop showing as a suggestion.

How To Stop Someone From Adding You To Snapchat Groups:

Creating Snapchat groups or being in a Snapchat group has various privileges. But here, you won’t have the admin feature that other social media apps offer.

All the members have the capacity and the needed features to modify any group settings. Therefore as there’s nothing as an admin, all the members are entitled to modify group settings, as well as add new members.

In the Snapchat group, as there’s no admin, everyone can add anyone he wishes to add. But the only drawback it has is that a member can never be removed by another member from a group.

The existing members can only add new members to the group but no one can remove any member from the group as Snapchat doesn’t provide a feature to remove anyone from the group.

Instead, if you’re willing to remove anyone from the group, you have to leave the group to stop being a part of it. No existing member of a Snapchat group can remove another existing member of the group.

1. Blocking the Person

You need to do it from inside the group setting and then that particular user won’t be able to receive any messages that you send to the group. Therefore he’ll be restricted from receiving and reading your messages in the group.

Due to the lack of a removal feature in the Snapchat group, blocking the member is an indirect option that can help any member to hide their message from unwanted ones and not get messages from them.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

You need to do it by following some exact steps, here are the points that’ll let you know the steps you need to follow:

Step 1: Open the Snapchat application on your device.

Step 2: Swipe right from the camera screen to get into the chat section.

Step 3: Then you need to locate and click on the group from which you want to block someone.

Step 4: Now that you’ve opened the group, click on the bitmoji of the group to open the group profile page.

Step 5: There you’ll be able to see the existing members of the group.

Step 6: You need to locate the name of the person whom you want to block.

Step 7: Next, click and hold on to the name. You’ll get the prompting set of options. Click on the option More and then click on Block.

You have to just confirm it and that’s it. That person won’t be able to see messages from you & you’ll not see him in the group.

You can be sure that your messages are safe from being read by unwanted persons and even that particular user won’t be able to send you messages or interact with you in the group.

2. Create a New Group without that Person

This is another indirect but useful way to get rid of unwanted persons in the Snapchat group.

This option is really good if the person is spamming through the group and everyone wants to get rid of that person.

Therefore, the other option is to form a whole new group on Snapchat and this time don’t add that particular member to the new group while adding others.

Then you and the other members can leave the previous group and thus you don’t have any unwanted people in the new group that you want to remove.

If the particular user whom you want to remove is toxic for all then probably this is the best way you can get rid of that user by creating an alternative group of that same group.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Creating a Snapchat group is a pretty simple and easy process and can be done by anyone with an account by following some simple steps. 

Step 1: Open the Snapchat application on your device.

Step 2: You’ll be able to see the camera screen as you open it. You need to swipe right to get into the chat section.

Step 3: On the chat section page, you need to locate the blue icon at the bottom right side of the screen. That’s the icon that will help you add or create a new group.

Step 4: Click on the blue icon to proceed.

Step 5: You’ll be able to see the option New Group as the very first choice.
