Here’s How to Remove a Friend on Snapchat
Now, removing or deleting a friend from your Snapchat friend list is fairly easy, though compared to other social media platforms like Facebook, it can be a tad bit confusing. Firstly, it is worth mentioning that Snapchat is essentially a mobile application and launched its web version only recently. So, as of writing this article, you cannot use Snapchat web on your PC or laptop to remove or delete a friend from your profile.
You will require an Android or iOS device on which you can install Snapchat and access your profile. The process of deleting a friend on WhatsApp is similar on both iOS and Android. With that said, let’s take a look at how to delete a friend on Snapchat on your mobile device:
Step 1. Launch the Snapchat app on your iOS or Android device.
Step 2. Log in to your Snapchat account.
Step 3. Tap the profile icon at the top left corner to access your Snapchat profile.
Step 4. Scroll down and tap the My Friends option.
Step 5. You can then use the search bar to find the profile that you want to delete.
Step 6. Tap and hold the profile to reveal the context menu.
Step 7. Tap the Manage Friendship option.
Step 8. Then, select the Remove Friend option on the following menu.
Step 9. Tap the Remove button to confirm your action and you are done.
Now, if you have already opened a chat with a friend whom you want to delete on Snapchat, you can access their profile in the Chat tab within the app. This will eliminate the hassle of going to the My Friends section from your Snapchat profile and searching for the contact that you want to delete.
Once you find the profile that you want to remove from your Snapchat profile in the Chat tab, follow Steps 6-9 (I swear, I did not intend this pun!) to remove the friend from your profile.
