Heavy Snapchat users get an extra bonus for participating more frequently in the app. Snap Score isn’t just a status symbol for many. In addition to knowing if a new friend is using the app often, it can also be used to show others that it’s your preferred method of communication, and even to determine if someone is actively communicating with other friends.
Gamers have their time played and achievements, while social media users have their Snapscores. Now let’s learn everything we can about the scoring system, including how to see someone’s Snap Score.

Check Your Snapchat Score
Under your profile image on the main Snapchat home page in the app, you can see your Snapchat score. Above any trophies you may have, it’s underneath your username. Depending on how active you are, your Snapscore number will vary. You don’t Snap other people if you have a low number. The higher your Snapscore, the more people you’ve snapped.
Your score is mainly determined by the number of Snaps you send and receive, as well as the number of Stories you create, post, and read. According to Snapchat, there are also other factors that contribute to this, but they don’t share them with us.
As avid Snapchat users covet the “streak,” we can safely assume they had something to do with it. As a general rule, the more you use Snapchat, the higher your score will be.
Check Someone Else’s Snapchat Score
The Snapscore of someone else can be viewed if you wish. If you want to be friends with someone, you must be friends with them. Otherwise, you won’t be able to see their score.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Chat with the person whose score you want to check.
- From your messages or the messages you’ve had with them, tap on their profile icon.
- You can view their score in the profile window that appears. You can find it at the top of the page next to the user’s username.
You will also be able to see the person’s Astrology sign and their location (if they have shared it). It’s because you haven’t friended each other if you can’t see the other person’s Snapscore.
Improve your Snapchat score
In order to increase your Snapchat score, you need to create and receive Snaps, create Stories, add friends, and maintain Snap Streaks.
According to most plausible theories, simple private messages do not help your snap score, but participating in group messages does.
To improve your score:
- Send your friends a good morning or goodnight Snap. It won’t take long for a few extra Snaps per day to add up.
- Take the time to read every Snap or Story you see. Just opening them will earn you points, no matter how painful it is to read or look at them.
- Get to know celebrities and engage with them. A celebrity usually posts several times a day, giving you an opportunity to view the story frequently. Additionally, you can send celebrities several Snaps a day to increase your own Score. The social media presences of some major celebrities are managed by agencies, so they may not even be aware of them.
- Engage with brands and follow them. Most major brands use agencies or social media marketers, as mentioned above. Sending Snaps to brands should have the same effect, especially if you can send a picture with a brand product.
- Put an end to Snapchat. That sounds dumb, doesn’t it? Do you get points for giving up? After giving up the app for a while and rejoining, you get more points.
You can only boost your Snapscore using these methods.
Last but not least, ignore websites that claim to boost your score within 24 hours for just a few dollars. Many of them are fake, and some even use hacked accounts. You may get a boost to your Snapchat score, but nobody wants to encourage hacking.
You’ll see a lot of spam or surveys to complete at best. You may encourage these people to hack more Snapchat accounts and ruin the experience for hundreds of people.
Frequently Asked Questions

To view someone else’s snap score, you must add them as a friend and have them accept you as a friend. If neither user has hit the ‘Add’ button, neither will see the other’s Snap Score. If you are blocked or removed, the same applies.
It’s likely the two of you are no longer friends on Snapchat if you once saw the Snap Score but can’t now.
When you see someone else’s score go up, it may take longer for you to see your own score rise. Many theories exist about how the Snapchat Score updates, but almost everyone agrees it can take up to a week for the new score to appear.
This doesn’t seem likely (it usually updates much quicker than that), but if you are helping someone increase their score, the score may be delayed. The score may not have updated after a week because the activities that the user is participating in on the app (such as private messages) are not included in the scoring system.
No, unfortunately. Although a Snap Scoreboard would be great, the developers have yet to implement it. As shown above, you must go to each friend’s profile to see their Snapscore. You’ll be disappointed to discover that there is no way to keep up with the world’s top Snappers if you’re trying to get the highest Snapscore ever.
Unfortunately, no. The other person will not know that you viewed their profile or Snapscore, unlike viewing Snaps. It’s completely anonymous, so you can check it as much as you like.
