How to Hide/Block Snapchat Story From Specific People or Friends

Last Updated: October 6, 2018

In this tutorial, we will let you know how you can hide or block someone from Snapchat story. You know this is useful if you don’t want your boss to see your story on Snapchat but at the same time, you don’t want to block him/her on Snapchat. As it can easily be figured out if someone has blocked you on Snapchat. And when your boss or a friend finds out that you have blocked them then it is definitely an uncomfortable situation for you.

How to Block Someone from Snapchat Story

So, to overcome this I bring to you a method wherein only your Story will be hidden from specific friends on Snapchat and you can still send them snaps or texts privately.

Without any further ado, let’s get rolling.

Block Someone From Snapchat Story

Using this method you are only hiding your Snapchat story from someone and not blocking them on Snapchat.

1. Open Snapchat app on your smartphone and tap on ghost icon at the top center.

2. Under your profile, tap on Settings(Gear icon) at the top right.

4. To hide your Story from the public you just need to select Friends. But in this case, we want to hide it from specific friends so select Custom.

5. Now, select the friends/people from whom you want to block the Snapchat Story. On selecting the contact, it will be marked with a white cross in a red box.

Now, just use the back arrow to save the changes.

Next time you upload Snapchat story it will be blocked from the users you selected above. You can always unblock them from your Story whenever desired by following the same steps and unchecking them at the last step. They will again start seeing your Story once you unblock them.

Another thing I noticed is that after uploading a story even if you unblock someone they will still won’t be able to view the story which you uploaded when they were blocked. They will only be able to see the stories you upload after they are unblocked.

If you are an Instagram user too then you can also go through hiding Instagram Story from specific followers.

We hope that you were able to successfully block someone from viewing your Snapchat story using this tutorial. If you found it helpful then share it with your friends. In case of any queries let us know in the comments.
