Snapchat gamifies its app in a lot of different ways, snap streaks and snap score being the primary factors. Your snap score is a rating of how often you use the app and increases every time you send a snap or post a story.
In this article, we’re taking a look at the snap score and how you can hide it from people.
What is the Snapchat score?
Aforementioned, your snap score is a numerical rating of how often you use the app. There’s a lot of mystery revolving around how this score is calculated, and Snapchat hasn’t exactly been very transparent about the algorithm either.
All that Snapchat has mentioned about the score is that it’s determined by a super-secret, special equation that combines the number of snaps you’ve sent and received, the stories you’ve posted and a couple of other factors.’

How to hide your Snap score?
No one can see your snap score unless you both add each other on Snapchat as friends. Unfortunately, there’s no way to hide your snap score from friends. This means that if you’re looking to hide your snap score from someone, you’re going to have to remove them as a friend.
You can do this without ringing any bells as Snapchat doesn’t notify a person when you block or remove them as a friend. Here’s how.
- Open Snapchat and tap on the search option on the top.
- Search for the friend you want to remove and tap their bitmoji.
- Tap the three vertical dots in the top right.
- Tap on Remove friend.
After this, that particular person will not be able to see your snap score at all. Do keep in mind that once you remove them as a friend, you both won’t be able to send snaps to each other either unless you add each other back.
