How thoughtful was it for Snapchat developers to add a block button? I know some buddies can be a nuisance, others creepy. The only way to save yourself the trouble is to hit the block button. Has this happened to you before? If it has, do you know how to get someone to unblock you on Snapchat?
The most typical way to get a Snapchat user to unblock you is by creating a new account. A new account with a different name, username, and everything could work. Once you send them a request and talk to them, you can explain yourself and hope they unblock you.
If a Snapchat user has blocked you, you might experience some trouble on your end regarding their account. Imagine walking or driving on the streets, and someone you see blocks your way. It is easier to ask them to give way. Snapchat is different, and you need to use other means to get yourself unblocked.
Let’s see how you can get someone to unblock you (hopefully they do) on Snapchat. You can try the options. However, courtesy is everything in this case, whether you were blocked with or without reason.
Create Another Snapchat Account and Reach Them
Snapchat doesn’t allow one user to have more than one account with the same app or number. However, man remains man. We love finding option B’s, and the same happens on Snapchat regardless of the rules and regulations governing account opening and ownership.
If you are bold enough to create a second account with the same number or app, you need a cloning application. Apps like the Dual Space app and Parallel Space will do the trick for Android users.
Snapchat Phantom works for IOS users. Mod applications allow you to manage several Snapchat accounts.
After creating another account, add whoever blocked you as a friend to the new account. Chat with them, explain yourself and apologize. It could work – you never know!
Use Other Social Media Platforms
We love to be on several socials because life is fun. One of the easiest ways to get someone to unblock you on Snapchat is through their other social media platforms. It could be Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, or any other. Apologize courteously for your mistake or bad behavior (you could have done something knowingly or unknowingly).
Why do I insist on being apologetic and courteous? A rough approach might lead to you being blocked on other social media accounts. How long will you keep creating other accounts after being blocked everywhere?
Mutual Friends Can Mediate on Your Behalf
It isn’t guaranteed that this will work because you don’t know how your mutual friends will approach the person you want to unblock you. Sometimes, they could convince the other user to unblock you, which works.
Here, you might need to explain to your mutual friends why you were blocked. Also, give reasons why you need this person back as a friend on Snapchat. Be careful when choosing mutual friends to take on this task. You want to get parties to help solve the problem and not worsen it.
Try your Luck with a Pseudo Account
I don’t support using pseudo accounts anywhere unless there isn’t any other option. You can create a fake Snapchat account and talk to the user who blocked you using your pseudo. When using a fake ID, be smart and hide your original identity. It is a fantastic way to get someone to unblock you on Snapchat.
Be careful when sending a message to this person. Ensure you maintain a different tone or language of conversation from your other Snapchat account. You don’t want to expose your radar and get blocked on the pseudo.
How To Avoid Getting Blocked on Snapchat
You should know that people are different both online and offline. There is a petty group that randomly blocks users they feel they don’t engage with. Others will block you at the slightest issue (name misspelling, sending unclear images, delaying messages) or provocation.
Sometimes, you are lucky to be unblocked if you use the methods above. On other occasions, you are unblocked without making any effort – should I say this group of people operates depending on their mood swings? Here are a few tips to prevent you from getting blocked by other users on Snapchat.
- Never use abusive language regardless of who you are talking to on Snapchat. Try your best to be calm. Some use the block button, while others can keep up with the insults and stage a verbal fight. You know, it is quick, easy and an excellent way to get rid of bad rubbish!
- If you know of friends or colleagues who someone on your Snapchat friend list has blocked, ensure you don’t repeat their mistake. At least you know what the other party dislikes, and since you want to retain them as a friend, you don’t want to upset them. Learning from others’ experiences is better.
Will you die if you don’t get unblocked on Snapchat? There is more to life than this. Sometimes, the best thing to do if everything above fails is to let go. You can follow other fun users (and if you do, ensure not to trigger them to block you).
Last Few Words
There are different ways to confirm if someone has blocked you on Snapchat. Once you can’t reach a user you’d like to engage, but you could reach them before, they could have blocked you. Getting them to unblock you isn’t as difficult as you think.
Try creating another account and messaging them politely to redeem yourself. Also, you can get into ghost mode and use a pseudo profile. If you feel like using a mutual friend to mediate on your behalf will work, do it!
Getting someone to unblock you on Snapchat is a fifty-fifty affair. If you get unblocked, lucky you! If you don’t, forget it and move on!
