How to See Someone’s Snapchat Friends List?

As mentioned, there is no sure sort of direct way to see someone’s Snapchat friend list, however, is one way out, where you can make a guess.

1. Determine from Quick Add Section

If you give a look at the quick add section, you would see the people that are mutuals of your friends.

The logic is in the way when you add someone on Snapchat, you become friends with that person and can send them messages or snap. Also, that person’s friends are suggested to you on Quick Add, thus you can assume, that some of those people who are coming to you as a suggestion are the person’s Friends.

Let’s dive in:

Step 1: Add the person

Add the person

First of all, add the person whose friend list you wish to find. Add the person means, add him/her as your friend on Snapchat.

Open your Snapchat, on the search bar type in the username of that person, and add him/her.

When you will add them on your side, they will receive a request, saying, Xyz added you as a friend, if you add you back on Snapchat then you’re now “friends” with the person on Snapchat.

It is very important that the other person adds you back. Otherwise, you won’t be having any access to any of their profile-related things.

Step 2: Go to Add friends

Go to Add friends

Once you added the person and he also added you back, the next move you have to make is, to go to your “Add Friends” section after 24 hours.

When you will open your Snapchat, the first thing that appears on the screen is the camera. On the same camera/ home page, at the top, you will find a head-shoulder icon with a “+” symbol on it, that is the ‘Add friends’ option. Click on it and head to that section.

Under the ‘Add friends’ section, you will see two columns. One is “Added me” on the top and the second is “Quick Add”.

In the former is a column you will find the list of people who have added you on their Snapchat, a kind of friend request list whereas on the other section, there is a list of people in your contact or the mutual friends of your Snapchat friends appear as a suggestion list.

Step 3: Look at Quick Add List

Now, on the ‘add friend’ section, come down a little and click on “Quick Add”.

Over there, scroll down and check the list. You will definitely get to know about the people on your friend’s friend list.

This is the method to check someone’s friend list on Snapchat through the guess that those might be the people on your friend’s friends list.

2. Ask For Credentials and Open his Snapchat

If you are the type of person who is not at all interested in going through such tricky methods, then the only way out left is to go and get that person’s phone.

Let’s start:

Step 1: Go to the person whose friend list you wish to see and ask him to give you their phone or if not phone, then login credentials.

Step 2: Open Snapchat, and click on the “avatar”, on the extreme top left corner of the screen a cartoon face-like profile picture. 

click on the “avatar

Step 3: On that page, scroll down a little and you will see an option as, “My Friends”, tap on it, and the whole list will appear in front of you on the screen.

Scroll, roll and see the friend’s list. Done!
