How To See Someone’s Snapchat Story If They Blocked You

✎ Key Takes:

» You can view someone’s Snapchat story even if they’ve blocked you by creating a new account, adding the user, and checking the story from the new or fake account.
» Take your friend’s mobile if they follow the user on Snapchat, ensuring the story appears to your friend. Alternatively, find the user’s Facebook and Instagram profiles, as the stories on those platforms may mirror their Snapchat stories.
» If you’ve been blocked, ask a friend to request the user to unblock you on Snapchat. Once unblocked, add the user to regain access to their stories, as being blocked results in the loss of Snapstreak and the inability to view the user’s chats and stories.

How to See Someone’s Snapchat Story If They Blocked You:

You will notice things:

1. Make a New Snapchat Account & Add Him

When a Snapchat user has blocked you, you won’t be able to view his stories or even find him on Snapchat by searching. But if you still want to see his Snapchat story then you’ll have to use certain methods or tricks to see it.

Make a New Snapchat Account

The trick here is to create one fake profile on Snapchat and then view the story with a fake ID so that the user won’t be able to know that it’s you who’s viewing the story.

If the story is public, you’ll not even need to follow the user to view the story on Snapchat however if the user has a private account on Snapchat, you need to first follow the user on Snapchat, and then when you’re added to user’s friend list, you’ll be able to check the person’s snap story.

2. From a Friend’s Mobile

Another method that you can use to see the story of a user on Snapchat is by checking it from a friend’s mobile.

You need to remember that you have to choose a friend who also follows the user who has blocked you on Snapchat so that you can use his Snapchat profile on his phone to look at the stories.

You need to request your friend to show you the stories of the user who has blocked you by handing the phone to you physically.

If the user agrees to do so, you’ll be able to check the stories of the person who has blocked you from another person’s Snapchat. This won’t get your name on the viewers’ list but at the same time, it will help you view the story.

3. Find a Story On Other Social Media (of that person)

If a user has blocked you on Snapchat, you can find him on other social media platforms and check out his stories on those profiles. This method can help you because there is a good chance that the stories of his other social media accounts are similar to his Snapchat stories.


You need to start by searching for him on Facebook. Once you find his Facebook profile, you need to see if it’s public or private. If the user has a public account, you will be able to check the stories without following the person.  If it’s locked, add the user to your friend list by sending him a friend request, and then you’ll be able to view the stories.

Then, search for him on Instagram and find his Instagram profile. Once you find it, check whether it is public or not as the public stories can be seen by you without following him. But if it’s private, follow the user on Instagram first to check the stories. However, it’s better to start following the user using a profile with a fake name so that he doesn’t know that it’s your profile.

4. Ask Him to Unblock and Add him again

Lastly, you can try to fix the matter between you and the user that has caused him to block you. You can approach him through your friend and can ask him to unblock you.

As you can’t message him directly, tell a friend of yours to ask the user on your behalf to unblock your profile on Snapchat and make things better with you again. Only if the user agrees to do and unblocks your account generously, you’ll be able to find the user’s account upon searching again.

You need to search for the user and if you find his account upon searching it means that he has unblocked you. You need to add him to your profile again by sending a friend request and then once your request gets accepted you will be able to check out his profile stories on Snapchat.

What Happens to Snapchat Story If You’re Blocked:

You will notice these changes:

1. You can’t find a chat with him

When a person on Snapchat has blocked your account, you’ll not be able to find the user’s previous chat with you. It will simply disappear from the inbox of your Snapchat profile.

You can't find a chat with him

The messages and media of the user’s chat will immediately vanish as soon as the user blocks you and will not get revived even after the user unblocks you on Snapchat.

2. Can’t see his story

After someone has blocked you on Snapchat, the user gets automatically removed from your Snapchat friend list which is why his Snapchat stories don’t show up on your profile story section.

Can't see his story

Even if you try to see a story even by searching his profile, you won’t be able to do so as blocking doesn’t allow you to find the user’s Snapchat profile either by searching. You can only see the story of the user’s Snapchat after the person unblocks you.

3. Snapchat Streak is Lost

When you have an ongoing Snapchat with a user who has blocked you, the Snapstreak will be lost. Snapstreak on Snapchat only stays when you send each other’s snaps daily. But if the user has blocked you, that would prevent you from sending as well as receiving snaps from him which is why the snap streak would be lost.


Why can’t I see someone’s Snapchat story when I’m not blocked:

You might have the following reasons:

1. He has Privacy Settings Or restricted You

When you’re not blocked on Snapchat by someone but you’re unable to see his Snapchat stories, it means that the user has changed his story’s privacy and it can only be visible to the selected person.

He has Privacy Settings

If the user previously had a public account, then his stories were available to be viewed by all which is why you could see them. But he may have changed his story privacy to Friends Only which is why it is only visible to his friends. You need to add the user to your friend list on Snapchat to view his story.

But if you’re already on his friend list, it means that the user has changed the privacy to Custom and has selected some specific people manually to view his story. His stories won’t be visible to you unless the user changes his privacy settings.

2. Unadded You From Snapchat

When you’re not able to see someone’s Snapchat but you’re not blocked too, the user may have unfriended you on Snapchat. When a person unadded you from his private account on Snapchat you get removed from the user’s Snapchat friend list.

Unadded You From Snapchat

After you’re removed from the friend list, you’ll not be able to see the Snapchat stories of the user as you’re not a friend of the user anymore. His stories will only be seen by his friends only.

You need to check it yourself by seeing the friend list of your Snapchat account. If you see that the user’s name has disappeared from your friend list it means that the user has removed you. Even if the +Add Friend button reappears on the profile page of the user you can be sure that he has blocked you.

3. Have not uploaded Any recently

Some users on Snapchat are not quite active. When you’re not able to see someone’s Snapchat stories for some days, it’s possible that the user is taking a break from Snapchat and has not uploaded any story especially if the user is not such an active person on social media. It doesn’t necessarily mean that he has unadded you.

Can't see his story

You can easily find it out yourself. Ask mutual followers if they have got to see stories from the user or not. If both of you haven’t seen stories from the user it means that he is taking a break from Snapchat and hasn’t posted Snapchat stories.
