Snapchat is one of the most popular social messaging applications among the millennials. It is used by many people and some of its features are not user-friendly, to be frank. I saw the majority of my friends using the application and thought of giving it a try. Snapchat is amazing in many ways and some of its features got copied on other platforms like Instagram as well.
After installing the application I am just staring at the screen and not knowing what to do. I read few guides here & there and finally got a hand on it. If we are going to install a social messaging application or creating an account on social media the first thing we always do is to add our friends. So after installing snapchat, the first thing we want is to add our friends.
Unlike present-day social media features like “Facebook suggesting random people based on mutual friends,” etc Snapchat doesn’t do the same. Snapchat makes use of your contacts to suggest you who are already on Snapchat and add them. It makes clear that you need to have the person you need to add in your contact list. There are other ways as well like you can search a particular user with the help of their username or add them using their snapcode etc.
So let’s break down the steps one needed to add someone on his/her Snapchat account.
- Most people tend to leave their social media handles all over Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. You can go the profile of the person you are looking to add and check for snapchat username.
- You can even ask any of your friends who know them personally.
- If you don’t have any options then by trial and error you can keep on searching for them by using their name & other things.
We mentioned earlier that Snapchat uses your contacts to suggest your buddies who are already having an account. Recently when I am discussing the same with my friends they are like “Are You Kidding Me ?? We don’t know about that till date.” So don’t worry if you don’t know that you can add your friends on snapchat using their mobile number as you aren’t alone.
Although there are several other methods to add your friends on snapchat this one is the easiest among them. Don’t worry we will cover those as well. So let’s have a look at the process of adding friends on snapchat using mobile number.

We understand that you tried the above method but still can’t find the person you are looking to add. Although you have contact of the snapchat user in your account sometimes they aren’t displayed. The person you are looking might chode to hide his mobile number on snapchat.
