When You Block Someone on Snapchat Do Messages Delete

Snapchat is a widely used social media app and users of all ages love it for the way it functions, which is much different from other apps. Today we focus on the blocking aspect of the app.

We would try to help you out with some regarding what happens when you block someone on Snapchat. If you would like to read other articles, such as if you ignore a friend request on Snapchat, would the person know, feel free!

When you block someone on Snapchat do the messages delete

Short answer: When you block someone on Snapchat, the messages are deleted from your side, including all the snaps, media, and texts. Meanwhile, the person who was blocked would retain all the media, snaps, and texts that were saved or currently have not disappeared from their chats.

Block someone on Snapchat

When you block someone on Snapchat, there is not much change in terms of visual appearance. However, some changes do take place and can be found by the person who has initiated the blocking process.

For the message part, you would notice that the chat history with the person whom you blocked has been deleted. Even if you have saved messages, they would all be gone. This process is irreversible and once the messages are gone, they cannot be retrieved in any way.

For the person who has been blocked, they would still have all the saved and currently available chats that have not disappeared. This would not change at any time for them and thus the only way to get your chats back is to reach them and ask for your chats via screenshot, if they are that important to you, that is.

When you block someone on Snapchat what do they see

Short answer: When you block someone on Snapchat, the person sees no changes and gets no official notice from Snapchat about the block. In fact, the person can even choose to message or send you a snap and their message would be sent, but not delivered. All the media and texts remain stored.

When you block someone on Snapchat, you get to notice some changes, such as the texts, and media files that were saved disappear from your chat. But what would they see? Would they even know they have been blocked, for instance?

As you have probably guessed, there would be no change for the other person once they get blocked by you. All the chats and files would be kept as is, your profile and friendship would be maintained and there would be no indications to show they have been blocked.

Furthermore, they might even choose to message or send you a snap, which you would never get. However, on their side, the message would show to be sent, just never delivered to you. This way blocking on Snapchat works anonymously.

Do note that they would not get to see your snaps, stories, and texts anymore if you did try sending them one. This follows the basic rule of blocking but still does not changes the fact that they would not be able to guess that they have been blocked. They might think you have simply not sent snaps in a while.

When you block someone on Snapchat can they still see your messages

Short answer: When you block someone on Snapchat, they can indeed see all the messages and snaps as before they were blocked. However, after the block has been put in place, they would no longer be able to get any ‘fresh’ updates regarding texts and snaps. The files from the past would still be saved.

After you have blocked someone on Snapchat, the question arises whether or not can they still see your messages. We break this question into two parts. One, whether or not they can see your previous messages, saved texts, and snaps.

And the other question is if they can see the texts and snaps sent after you have blocked them. The second question is almost a no-brainer and to answer it simply, no they would not be able to see any updates related to you after the block. This includes snaps, texts, and highlights.

For the first question, we have previously mentioned that all the saved conversations would remain as is for the person and would not be deleted upon blocking them, even though it would be for you.

This indicates that if you have a sensitive chat with someone, proceeding delicately instead of just blocking them in the heat of the moment might prove more harmful than useful.

If I screenshot a message on Snapchat from someone I’ve blocked will they still know

Short answer: Technically the other person would not be able to know, or be notified if you took a screenshot of their chat, but as the chat is deleted from your side when you block the person, there would be essentially no chat to take a screenshot of.

Snapchat is known for notifying users when the other person has taken a screenshot of their chat or snaps. But then a question stands if the user would be notified even after they have been blocked about the screenshot.

The simplest way to explain this is that there would be no chat left to screenshot once you have the person blocked. As all of the chat is deleted, you would have nothing to take a screenshot of.

Regardless, if you have decided to take a screenshot of the empty Chatbox, for example, to send to someone, then the answer is no, they would not be notified that you have taken a screenshot of their  ‘chat’.
