A lot of us don’t know what happens when we block someone, the few main questions that we ask ourselves is can the person still watch my stories, can he/she still message me, or can they search my Snap id even if he/she is blocked.
What happens when you block someone on Snapchat?
When you block someone on Snapchat you restrict them from almost everything, which includes that you won’t receive any text from the blocked person, you won’t get any Snaps either and the blocked person will not be able to find your username through search.
Now even though you don’t receive any Snaps or messages the blocked person can still send you the messages from his side but you will not receive anything on your side.
If you block someone does he/She gets a notification
Technically Snapchat does not notify the blocked person that he/she has been blocked by you, on his screen it might look like you have deactivated your account. However, there are a few ways to find out if someone has blocked you or not.
You can also see if someone is active on Snapchat as well.
How to find out if you have been blocked by someone on Snapchat
As I mentioned above Snapchat does not notify anyone if they have been blocked to maintain user privacy. When someone blocks you on Snap chat you won’t be able to see their story, they might disappear from your chat, and you can’t find their username while searching. Still, you can never be entirely sure if the other person has blocked you or maybe he has deactivated his account or deleted it.

What happens to the chats when you block someone on Snapchat
While the person is completely restricted to reach out to you through Snapchat, he can access the previous chats, and on the other side when you block someone all the chats disappear from your side, the person can see the chat because Snapchat does not let the blocked user know if he/she has been blocked by someone and if the chats disappear from his side it makes it obvious that the user has been blocked by you.
