Snapchat is an Android and iOS app, co-founded by co-founder Evan Spiegel. The basic idea of Snapchat is that any images, videos, or messages you send are only available for a short time before they can be viewed. This temporary nature of the application gained considerable popularity recently.
To get things done, we first need to understand what exactly Snapchat score is? Now start swiping down from the top of the screen to reveal your profile page. Right next to your name you will find a set of numbers. It’s not something that shows how many snaps you’ve sent to your friends, that number is actually your Snapchat score. It shows your social health on Snapchat.
Such options do not exist at all on other social networks. However, there are those who want to hide the score from their Snapchat account so that other users cannot see them.
What does the score mean?
Unfortunately, Snapchat has never fully explained how its points system works, so it can often be difficult to keep up with exactly how these points are earned.
Still, just by running a few tests and following some basic math, we can see a simple breakdown of these points based on what we do now.
- Sending or receiving a snap or images earns you a single point, although some snapshots seem to award additional points for unknown reasons.
- Sending snapshots to multiple people at once doesn’t earn you bonus points.
- Posting a snapshot of your story earns you a point, but viewing stories does not.
- Similarly, posting video stories with multiple videos (over the ten-second mark) doesn’t seem to earn you any extra points.
- Forming or continuing a streak does not earn you additional points.
Where can I find my Snapchat points?
Open the Snapchat app on your Android or iPhone device, and the Snapchat camera will appear directly.
Click on your profile icon that you can see at the top, if you have added a Bitmoji to your profile, your Bitmoji will be your profile icon.
Your profile interface will appear which consists of many options including the option to add friends, Snapcode, Stories you posted, Your Snapchat username, in addition to the zodiac sign and a certain number of digits that are the score of your Snapchat account.
If you are a recent user, this number can be as low as zero or one, or it can be high if you are a former user of your account because it can be up to six digits long.
This number is the sum of your points on Snapchat, and it increases according to the activities you do on the network, such as creating stories and sending them to your friends, constantly logging into your Snapchat account, sharing your location on the map etc.
How to hide your Snapchat score in a few simple steps?
If someone wants to see your Snapchat score and has access to your profile because they are added to your friend’s list, they can see your Snap score.
Fortunately, there is no way for them to see your score unless the two of you add up.
This makes it easy to remove people you don’t want to see your profile information, basically removing them from your app entirely.
If you keep a particular person on Snapchat as your friend, he or she will be able to see your Snapchat score whether you want to or not.
If you don’t like showing off your Snapchat achievements, you can hide your Snapchat score by following these 3 methods.
Delete a friend
- Open your Snapchat account and choose a friend from the friends’ list.
- Tap on its Bitmoji.
- When you go to a new screen, choose Menu (seen as 3 vertical dots) in the upper right corner.
- Now, from the list of options displayed, select Remove friend.
Change profile visibility settings
- Tap your Bitmoji on the camera screen.
- Access Settings (visible as a gear icon) in the upper right corner.
- Scroll down to the Who Can section and under it choose the Contact Me option.
- Now, change the visibility setting from Everyone to My friends. This will hide your Snapchat score from unknown people who wanted to view your score.
See me in the quick add option
You should also take a look at the See me in quick add setting here, which can be turned on and off.
The quick add shows you people suggestions based on common friends and connections, but if you want to help hide your profile from people who might be trying to find your Snapchat score, you can turn that off in the settings menu to turn it off completely.
This way you can stop worrying about someone automatically adding you to see your Snapchat score because they will need to add you via a Snapcode or username to do so.
Why can't I see someone's Snapchat score if we are still friends on the application?
When you can’t see someone’s Snapchat score, there is a strong chance that the person is no longer friends with you.
Snapchat doesn’t inform you when someone stops being friends or blocks you.
However, you can verify this by sending a message to the person to see he has blocked you or not.
If you see a gray Snapchat icon (an arrow) next to the message, he or she has probably blocked you.
Yes, it means that you have been blocked or removed from the person’s friends list on Snapchat.
The instant score is only shown when two or more people have added each other as friends.
