Sorry Couldn’t Find User On Snapchat – Why Does It Show

Your Quick Answer:

When you get blocked by someone on Snapchat, you’ll not get any notifications for that.

However, you can find it by sending snaps or messages to each of your friends on Snapchat and looking for the profiles to which your snap doesn’t get delivered.

You can also see with whom the snap streak count has recently turned zero. After blocking you, your partner would stop sending you snaps, the snap streak will get reduced to zero.

You can also confirm if you get displayed with the error of Unable to send messages while sending a message to someone.

Although, there may be another reason for this thing while displayed. You can try a few things to know if someone just blocked you on Snapchat.

Sorry Couldn’t Find User – Why Does It Show On Snapchat:

Another way you can see who has blocked you on Snapchat is by searching for profiles using their usernames. If you want to know if a user has blocked you or not, you need to simply search for the user using his or her username. If you don’t find the profile after searching, you can be sure that this is the user who has blocked you.

If you find the account, you’ll be able to see the blue Add Friend button on the profile of the user.

You need to click on that Add Friend button if it shows Sorry! Couldn’t find (username), it means that the account has blocked you and thus it can’t be added to your Snapchat friend list.

Couldn't find it on Search

However, you need to be sure that you’re entering the correct username while searching for a Snapchat profile because if you search with the wrong username it will not be able to scan for the actual profile. 

But if the profile gets added to your friends list immediately after you click on the blue Add Friend button, you’ll be able to know that the user hasn’t blocked you. The Add Friend button immediately disappears after it has added the profile as your friend, but in the case, when the user has blocked you, you’ll find a symbol circling next to the Add Friend instead, seeing which you’ll get to know that the profile couldn’t be added to your friend list.

How To See Who Blocked You On Snapchat:

Here are the different ways by which you can find out the names of the people who might have blocked you on Snapchat.

1. Send Messages to Friends:

If you want to find out the name of the Snapchat friend who has blocked you, you can do that by sending snaps or messages to your whole friend list on Snapchat.

When a friend of yours just blocks you on Snapchat, your snaps won’t be delivered to that user anymore.

To find out who that user is, you need to first click a snap and send it to your all Snapchat friends. Next, on the chat screen, scroll down the page one by one to find out the profile to which your snap couldn’t be delivered and is showing Pending in grey.

Your snap will be delivered to those profiles that haven’t blocked you and you’ll be able to see the blue arrow mark next to the word Delivered for those profiles. Seeing the Pending sign, you’ll be able to figure out the name of the profile that has blocked you.

You can also send messages instead of sending snaps if you want to. For this technique to work, you need to wait for the user to reply to your message. If any profile doesn’t reply to your message, it may be because the user has blocked you.

🔴 Steps To Do:

Step 1: Open the Snapchat application.

Step 2: Click a snap on the Camera screen and then click on the yellow Send To button.

Step 3: On the next page, you need to tick mark all the circles one after another that are displayed next to your friends’ names and then click on the blue Send icon.

Step 4: The snaps would be sent to your friends.

Step 5: You’ll have to scroll down and find out the profile that’s showing Pending instead of Delivered to know the name of the user who has blocked you.

2. Check Snap Streak Record:

When you see that a streak record crashes all of a sudden because your partner hasn’t replied to your snap, it might be because the user has blocked you on Snapchat. When you’re trying to find out the profile name that has blocked you, you need to notice the accounts with whom you have a good snap streak going on.

Your snap streak with other profiles’ can only increase if you send them daily snaps as well as receive snaps as replies. But if you find out snap streaks going on with a particular profile suddenly go down to zero, it is because the user may have stopped replying to you and has blocked your account.

After someone blocks you on Snapchat, he or she will not be able to send messages or snaps to you anymore. Hence, the user would suddenly stop replying to you with snaps and the streak count will get lost to zero.

After you find out the snap streak with a user has crashed to zero, you can also find out if the user has blocked you by sending the user a snap. If you find that the snap is not getting Delivered but it’s showing Pending, you can be sure that the user has blocked you.

When someone blocks you on Snapchat, the account no longer stays in your friend list, neither you’ll be able to contact that user nor will he, unless he unblocks you. Therefore, the snap streak that you’ve collected earlier will crash and cannot be gained back too.

3. Check for Errors:

You need to know that when someone blocks you on Snapchat, you won’t be able to send messages to that user anymore. While you’re trying to find out the name of the account that has blocked you on Snapchat, you need to start by sending messages to all the friends on your Snapchat friend list.

You’ll notice that for one profile, it will show you as Unable to send messages when you’re trying to send the message to the user.

It’s because the owner of the account has blocked you on Snapchat, which is why you’re seeing the error message.

🔴 Steps To Use:

Steps to send messages to someone on Snapchat:

Step 1: Open the Snapchat application.

Step 2: From the camera screen, swipe right to enter into the chat section.

Chat Section

Step 3: There you’ll be able to see the names of your Snapchat friends listed one by one.

Step 4: Start messaging by clicking on the first name.

Step 5: You’ll need to message all the friends to find out the profile with whom you’re seeing the error message.

Often when someone on Snapchat blocks you, their chat gets deleted from the chat section of the app automatically.  You can scroll down the chat section and find out whose chat is missing. It will help you know who the user has blocked you.

The Bottom Lines:

You can either send snaps or messages to all your friends to see if it gets delivered or replied to. You can also check for error messages while sending messages on Snapchat to the user, which may be had blocked you.
