How to tell if Someone Checked your Location on Snapchat:

You can try the below methods to tell if someone checked your location on Snapchat:

1. There is No Direct Feature

If you want to know who has viewed your location on the SnapMap on Snapchat, you should know that unfortunately, Snapchat does not have any such feature that can let you know who has viewed your location on the Snap map. 

However, you can only guess who has checked your location on Snapchat. Most of the users who are interested in your profile have a higher chance of viewing your location. 

Therefore, the people or friends who see your snap stories regularly, and DM you frequently are more likely to check your Snapchat location on the Snap Map than others. But you can be sure that these stalkers are from your friend list. 

2. Your Friends Can Only See

Changing location on the Snap Map can only be viewed by those users who are on your Snapchat friend list. Therefore, you can be sure that no unknown person is keeping an eye on your Snapchat location to track you down but only those who are on your Snapchat friends list.

Your Friends Can Only See

You can check the list of your Snapchat friends to know who is allowed to view your Snap Map location.

If you don’t want to show the location to any of your friends, you can set the Snap Map privacy by excluding that particular friend from viewing your location. You can turn on the Ghost mode to freeze your Snapchat location so that it’s not visible to anyone. 

3. Check From Snap Map

On the Snap Map see if you can see some of your Snapchat friend’s locations. If you find some people on the Snap Map, they may have viewed your location too. You can check their recent moves to know about their changing location. 

Check From Snap Map

As Snapchat doesn’t have a feature to directly let you know who has viewed your location on Snapchat, you’ll need to use this kind of trick to see if you can find out the stalkers of your Snapchat location. But these location stalkers are from your Snapchat friend list.

They can also be non-interactive friends or ghost friends who don’t interact much but secretly keep an eye on your location after being friends with you on Snapchat. You need to choose your Snap Map privacy wisely to prevent others from knowing your Snapchat location.  

How Long did your Location Stay on Snap Map?

The answer to this is, that the location stays on the Snap map for about 5 to 6 hours, after leaving the app unopened.

For example: If you have opened Snapchat in the morning at around 10 am in the library, then till 4 pm, Snap map shows your location of the library, only if you haven’t opened snap chat between 10 am to 4 pm.

When you open Snapchat, on the extreme bottom left corner of the home interface, you will get an icon of location. By clicking on that icon, you can check the location of all your Snapchat friends who have enabled you to see their location.

And next, again on the very bottom left corner of the Map interface, you will see an option displayed as “My Bitmoji”, you can check what location of yours is a Snap map displaying to your friend.

Can you See who Viewed your Location on Snapchat?

You can not see who viewed your location on Snapchat. So, if anyone of your friends checks your location, you won’t be able to find him/her.

As soon as you open Snapchat, your location gets changed as per your current location, and so are the others. Also, many a time people change their bitmoji and take a glance at other people’s bitmoji too. Hence, one can say, they must have viewed your location but you can not rely on this. It is not at all 100% accurate.

Although Snapchat does not allow the users to know the people who have viewed their location but allows them to check who has tracked their travel journey. Yes, you can get to know the number of people that have checked where you went and how far you have traveled.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. If You Click On Someone On Snapchat Does It Notify Them?

When you start typing your text on someone’s chat, they will notice it as a ‘Typing’ tag and that’s all he’ll know.

2. Why Does My Snapchat Location Say I’m Somewhere Else?

If you changed your location, the location gets updated every time you open Snapchat and this detail is displayed to your friends when they check your Snap map.
