Snapchat is one of the most popular messaging apps amongst the younger generation due to the slew of features that are built from the ground up to allow for better privacy and protection against unwanted attention, 

Things like disappearing messages, screenshot alerts and more control over who sees your content make it appealing to the younger masses. You don’t even have profile pictures. Instead, those are replaced by Bitmojis, an animated avatar of yours.

Of course, all these added benefits are of no use if the basics are nailed down and you can be pretty sure about Snapchat nailing them. There’s every privacy feature in here that you expect and some more.

Blocking people from various parts of your Snapchat profile is just as simple. In this article, we’re going to talk about how to block someone from seeing your Story on Snapchat.
