Snapchat is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world at the moment. The app is built around privacy as its messages and snaps disappear right after the viewer has seen them.
However, in a bid to protect its users, the platform often does things that can confuse them. In this article, we’re taking a look at what does “Other Snapchatters” mean in your story views.
When you post a story on Snapchat or just about anywhere for that matter, you will be able to see who has seen your story. While most platforms are relatively transparent about this, on Snapchat, you might often see a story view labelled “Other Snapchatters”.
The feature has been around for at least since 2017, as evident by a string of users asking Snapchat support what does this new “Other Snapchatters” section in their story view means.

Why are you seeing ‘Other Snapchatters’?
There are three possible cases where you might see other snapchatters in your story views:
- You haven’t added the viewer as a friend yet.
- The viewer has removed you as a friend.
- The viewer has blocked you.
There’s a chance that you might still see “Other Snapchatters” in your story views even after you are still friends with everyone who has access to your story. In such cases, the other individual has, in fact, blocked you from their profile.
However, the viewer must have seen your story before blocking you, as Snapchat restricts all communication between two people as soon as one decides to block the other. In fact, in most such “Other Snapchatter” view cases, chances are the other person saw your story first, then proceeded to remove you as a friend or block you altogether.
