How To Find Deleted Friends on Snapchat

Oops! Did you accidentally remove a friend from your Snapchat friend list? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered on how to add them back. Let’s find out how you can re-add deleted friends on Snapchat.

To locate your deleted friends on Snapchat, you have several options. You can search for them using their username, check your contacts list, see if they’re still on your friends’ list, or even use a snapcode. It’s worth noting that Snapchat often keeps deleted friends on your list for a limited time.

If you can’t remember your friend’s username or contact information and you recently deleted them by mistake, the first thing you should do is check if they’re still on your friend list.

If their username is still visible on your Snapchat’s friend list, adding them back is simple. Just follow these steps:

  1. Open the Snapchat app.
  2. Tap on your user profile at the top-left of the screen.
  3. Find the Friends section and select My Friends.

Once the list appears, you’ll see all the users you follow and who follow you. Even if you deleted them, they might still be on this list with a plus sign next to their name.

This means they’re still following you and unaware that you accidentally deleted them. To re-add them, simply tap on the plus sign. Your deleted friend will become your friend once again. However, keep in mind that this method only works if that friend is also following you.

Alternatively, if you remember your friend’s Snapchat username, you can easily add them back. Just use the search option within the app to find them. Here’s how:

  1. Open Snapchat from the app menu.
  2. Select the Add Friends icon at the top right corner of the screen (profile with a plus sign above it).
  3. Type the username in the search bar.
  4. Tap on the Add button on the right.

After following these steps, you’ll have successfully re-added your friend to your Snapchat friend list. If you can’t recall their username, you can check it by visiting Snapchat on your web browser and selecting the Snapchat Data option. Downloading this information will provide you with a complete list of people you’ve blocked or deleted.

Simply log in, follow the verification steps, download your information, open the file, and search for your friend’s username.

Remember, Snapchat regularly updates its best friends data, so keep that in mind when adding or removing someone from your friend list.

Another way to find your friend on Snapchat is by using their Snapcode. If you have a photo of their Snapcode on your phone, you can use it to find their profile. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go to Snapchat and tap on the Add Friends icon in the upper-right corner.
  2. Tap on the ghost icon on the right side of the search bar.
  3. Select the image from your photo gallery that contains the Snapcode.

Snapchat will scan the code, find your friend, and add them to your friend list.

Just remember, the Snapcode needs to be in its original size. If the image is cropped, stretched, or altered in any way, it won’t work.

Now, let’s talk about what happens when you delete a friend on Snapchat. Don’t worry, they won’t receive a notification unless you add them back. You can also find out if someone has deleted you on Snapchat by following our guide.

If you remove a friend, they won’t be able to see your Snap Score unless they’re still friends with you. Depending on your privacy settings, they won’t have access to your Snaps, stories, or messages unless you have a public profile. Your friend may not even notice they’re gone from your Snapchat friend list for a while.

But remember, once you add them back, they will receive a notification from the app saying that “(Your Username) has added you!” So, be prepared to explain that you accidentally removed them. Whether you tell the truth or use a little white lie is entirely up to you. At least you’ve managed to restore things to how they were before things went wrong!

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I still can’t find the username of the deleted Snapchat contact?

The only other option Snapchat users have to find the usernames of those they’ve deleted is to download their Snapchat data from the website. Log in, click on the Data link, and download your Snapchat stored data as a zip file to your computer. Scroll through the data and check the logs from people who have sent you Snaps. You might find their username there if they’ve sent or received Snaps from you.

I accidentally deleted a friend on Snapchat. Will they get a notification if I add them back?

Yes. Although Snapchat doesn’t notify other users when you delete them, they will receive a notification when you re-add them. The best approach is to explain to them that it was an accident, glitch, or malfunction and then add them back.

Can I still send messages to someone I deleted on Snapchat?

It depends on the privacy settings of the Snapchat user you deleted. If their settings allow messages from everyone, then yes, you can still send them messages. However, if they’ve restricted their privacy settings, they may not receive your messages. You can try sending them a message and see if it shows as “Pending.” If it does, they likely have their privacy settings set to standard.

What if I still can’t find the username of the deleted contact?

If you’re still struggling to find the username of a deleted contact, the only other option is to download your Snapchat data from the website. Log in, click on the ‘Data’ link, and download your Snapchat stored data as a zip file to your computer. Take a look at the data and check the logs of people who have sent you Snaps. If they’ve exchanged Snaps with you, their username might be there.

I accidentally deleted a friend. Will they get a notification if I add them back?

Yes, they will receive a notification when you add them back, even though Snapchat doesn’t notify them when you delete them. To handle this situation, it’s best to be honest and explain that it was accidental or there was a glitch. Then, go ahead and add them back.

Can I still send messages to someone I deleted?

Whether or not you can send messages to someone you deleted depends on their privacy settings. If their settings allow messages from “Everyone,” then you can send them messages. However, if they have set their privacy restrictions, they may not receive your messages. You can test this by sending them a message. If they respond, it means they’ve seen it. But if it says “Pending,” it’s likely that their privacy settings are set to standard.
