If you pin someone as BFF on Snapchat does it tell them?

Snapchat let users pin any of their friends as No.1 BFF❤️ with its paid feature. When pinned, the chat remains at the top of list of all the chats. Great way to show love and friendship, at least on Snapchat!

But, have you ever wondered if the ‘No.1 BFF❤️’ pin can be seen by the user?

Well, here in this post, we will be discussing the same, along with other essential details.

Let us dive right into the details now.

If I pin someone as No.1 BFF ❤️ on Snapchat will they know

Quick Answer: No, if you pin someone as No.1 BFF on Snapchat, they won’t get notified about it. Snapchat shows the BFF tag only to the person who bought Snapchat+ to use it. Thus, changes made to a user’s status remain private on Snapchat, unlike Friend Emojis.

The popular social media platform motivates Snapchat users to create streaks on a daily basis. The Snapstreak and Snap Score are a way of finding out the activity on the platform, and as always, the more the snapscore, the better the reputation! At least in the Snapchat community.

If you have been using Snapchat for some time, you might already know about Friend Emojis. If two users exchange snaps and texts with each other the most, more than other friends in the list, Snapchat rewards them with the Friend Emoji.

BFF ❤️ (the heart emoji) appears next to your friend who has been your #1 Best Friend for two consecutive weeks.

The friend emoji is earned by both the users – you and your friend. That means they will also see the heart emoji next to your chat. Hence, unlike No.1 BFF tage, the BFF Friend Emoji is not private. Your friend can see it!

What happens when you pin someone as your #1 BFF on Snapchat

Short Answer: When you pin someone as your #1 BFF they appear on the top of the chat with a heart emoji❤️ as your BFF even when you do not with them very frequently aur main streaks.

In 2022, Snapchat brought its subscription-based service – Snapchat Plus, with additional features. Snapchat+ lets users add their friends as their No.1 BFF, which is a quick way to add tag someone as your BFF without maintaining consistency for 2 long weeks.

To use this feature, you need to buy a Snapchat+ subscription first. This is another reason why Snapchat only shows the No.1 BFF tag only to the person who purchased the subscription.

How to tell if someone pinned you on Snapchat

Short Answer: There is no way to tell if someone pinned you on Snapchat, even if you have a Snapchat+ subscription. Only the user who pinned your chat or tagged you as the No.1 BFF can see the status. You can only see the chats you pinned yourself.

The only way to know if someone has pinned you as the No. 1 BFF is by checking their Snapchat account, which is not feasible for everyone out there.

Snapchat, like other social media platforms, doesn’t make the tagged or pinned chat public. There’s no point in doing that.

But, if the BFF or ❤️ Friend Emoji appears organically when you exchange most snaps and texts with someone on Snapchat, it will appear for both the users – you and your friend. They will know that you are their BFF.

#1 The Organic way

To make someone your #1 Best Friend on Snapchat quickly, you just need to exchange a lot of snaps with them. Well, that’s not all; you will need to send them extra snaps, more than you send anyone else in your friend list.

And that’s how you show Snapchat that the person deserves a special status on the list.

But the other person must do the same. If they share the most Snaps with you, only then the #1 Best Friend emoji will appear for both users.

#2 The Snapchat+ way

If you buy Snapchat’s paid subscription, you can pin a single person from your list as your No.1 BFF ❤️. But, unlike the Friend Emoji, the BFF tag can only be seen by the person who pins the chat.

In our opinion, the organic way is the best way!

How to get Super BFF on Snapchat

There is only one way to get Super BFF on Snapchat: the organic way. No paid subscription can buy you the ability to tag someone as Super BFF.

The first step is to make them your best friend on Snapchat. You just need to ensure that you share most snaps and messages with them. More than the others in our friend list. But Snapchat considers two users as Best Friends only when both share the most snaps with each other.

The second step is to maintain the friendship. As you retain the Best Friend status with the person for some time, Snapchat promotes your friendship with different Friend emojis.

The supreme status you and your friend can get is the Super BFF with two heart emojis (💞). The only way to get Super BFF is by maintaining the best friend status for 2 months.


Snapchat lets you share the Best Friend status with the user in the friend list. You just need to grow things organically.

But, when you choose to pin the user with the No.1 BFF using Snapchat + perks, the user, on the other hand, won’t see the same status.
