Can You Cancel a Friend Request on Snapchat?

On Snapchat, the friend request that you sent expires after forty-eight hours. If you’ve sent a friend request to somebody just now, but want to cancel it, you won’t be able to do that before 48 hours. After 48 hours the request expires and you’ll be again able to see the Add button option next to the name.

You won’t be able to cancel the sent friend request yourself, but if it has been more than 48 hours since the friend request was sent, then it must have expired and got canceled by itself if the user has not accepted it.

As the request expires on its own if not accepted within 48 hours, you’ll need to send it again to the person.

You can also open the My Friends list and search for the person to check if the person is on your friend list or not. If you don’t find the user, it means that the user has not accepted the friend requests.

Why Can’t You Find a Person after Adding him on Snapchat?

When you can’t find the person on Snapchat by searching after you’ve added him, it might be because the user has blocked you or has deleted his account.

If you’ve added a user but cannot find the account after searching, you need to check if the person has blocked you or not. You can head on to the chat section of your Snapchat account by swiping right from the camera screen. There, you may find the previous chats you’ve had with the user. You can open the chat and send a snap to the person. If you see the snap is not getting delivered to the user instead it’s showing pending, you can be sure that the user has blocked your account.

Moreover, it’s also possible that the user has deleted his account which is why you can’t find him on Snapchat. Therefore, to confirm it, you can ask a mutual friend to search for the user on Snapchat. If both you and the mutual friend cannot find the user’s profile on Snapchat, then you can be sure that he hasn’t blocked you but has deleted his account.

The Bottom Lines:

This article explains the method to check the pending friend request on Snapchat. The friend request you’ve sent to other users can be checked by seeing the Added tag. Besides, the friend request you’ve received can be checked from the Added Me section.

If you send a friend request to someone on Snapchat, it expires after 48 hours and you’ll need to send it again. You can check if your request has been accepted or not by looking at the + Add Friend button on his profile page. When you can’t find a user on Snapchat even after adding him, it can be because he has blocked you or deleted his account from Snapchat.
